Michigan OL recruit Erik Swenson decommits, claims team pulled offer
Wednesday January 20th, 2016

Offensive line recruit Erik Swenson has decommitted from Michigan after claiming the school pulled his offer, reports MLive.com’s Nick Baumgardner.

Swenson, a four–star recruit, had been committed to Michigan since 2013. According to the report, Swenson said Michigan canceled his previously scheduled official visit, and subsequently pulled its offer without giving a reason.

Swenson tweeted his response to Harbaugh’s decision on Wednesday.

“I would like to thank the University of Michigan community for the love and support,” Swenson wrote. “As you all know, I have been committed to Michigan since November 2013, and it was my full intention to play in front of you all in the Big House. God has another plan. Due to unforeseen circumstances, I am reopening my recruitment.”

Swenson added that he will not be commenting further on the matter, while also asking that people respect him and his family at this time. 

The Downers Grove, Ill., native is the second recruit to decommit from Michigan in the past week, joining corner Sir Patrick Scott.

National Signing Day is Feb. 3.
