Michigan lost a commitment from 2019 four-star all-purpose back Eric Gray on Saturday.
Gray made the announcement on Twitter, calling Michigan an “excellent program” even while deciding to re-open his recruitment.
Gray, 5-foot-10 and 193 pounds, plays at Lausanne Collegiate School in Memphis, Tenn. The recruiting site 247Sports ranks him the No. 85 prospect in the nation, the No. 1 all-purpose back in the nation, and the No. 2 prospect in the state of Tennessee for 2019.
He also has offers from the likes of Alabama, Tennessee and Penn State. A “Crystal Ball Prediction” from 247Sports calls Tennessee the new favorite to land him.
It’s the second big recruiting loss of the week for Michigan, after four-star running back Tim Baldwin Jr. decommitted Monday.
Also this week, top quarterback recruit Harrison Bailey chose Tennessee over Michigan.
