Three-star running back A.J. Dillon flipped his commitment from the Michigan Wolverines to the Boston College Eagles on Wednesday. 


As we progress through the recruiting dead period, Jim Harbaugh’s Wolverines are setting up for some big pledges with 5-star wide receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones and 4-star wide receiver Tarik Black set to announce their commitments, as both are considering the maize and blue.

However, on Wednesday, Michigan lost a commit from its 2017 recruiting class when 3-star prospect A.J. Dillon flipped his commitment from the Wolverines to the Boston College Eagles.

Dillon, a Groton, Massachusetts native, is the No. 40 running back in the nation and the No. 1 running back in the state. He released a brief statement regarding his decision to back off his pledge to Michigan.

“Not everyone is going to understand or agree with my decision, [but] I did what’s best for me.”

Boston College has 18 total commits in the cycle and currently sits at No. 68 in the 2017 recruiting class rankings. The Eagles now have two running backs in their class, as Dillon joins 3-star prospect Travis Levy, the nation’s No. 41 running back.

For Michigan, the loss of Dillon does not leave a huge dent in its 2017 class. The Wolverines still have commitments from 4-star halfback O’Maury Samuels and 3-star tailback Kurt Taylor.

In fact, the spot Dillon left behind is now open for Michigan to fill with 5-star recruit Najee Harris, the No. 1 running back and No. 1 overall player in the country. Harris took an official visit to Ann Arbor this past weekend and is believed to be a realistic candidate to flip his commitment from Alabama to Michigan.
