For the sixth time in less than two months, a recruit has backed off his pledge to Jim Harbaugh’s Wolverines.
The latest prospect do so is 2-star inside linebacker Chase Lasater, from Jacksonville, Florida, who announced his decommitment from Michigan on Monday.
The 6-foot-2, 235-pound linebacker released a statement regarding his decision.
“After much time, consideration, and thought, I would like to announce my decommitment from the University of Michigan. Even though this was an incredibly tough and heart breaking decision, my family and I feel it is best to reopen my recruitment. I’d like to thank all coaches, including Coach [Jim] Harbaugh for recruiting me and especially Coach Bam for making me feel like family to the team. Michigan remains a top school on my list, and I wish them the best of luck throughout this football season. Finally, thanks to the fans for showing as much love as they did. Sincerely, Chase Lasater.”
Of the six recruits who have recently decommitted from the Wolverines, Lasater is the third from the 2017 recruiting class. He joins 4-star defensive tackle Aubrey Solomon and 2-star tight end Carter Dunaway.
The other three are all from the 2018 recruiting class. They include 3-star defensive end Leonard Taylor, 3-star offensive guard Jalil Irvin and 3-star inside linebacker Antwuan Johnson.
Michigan is the only Power Five offer Lasater holds at the moment. He also holds offers from Charlotte and Troy. Lasater originally committed to the Wolverines on March 31.
