While the Michigan Wolverines have been cleaning up on the recruiting trail of late, they lost one of their prospects on Tuesday morning. Defensive back Anthony Standifer from Monee, Illinois backed out of his commitment to the Wolverines according to the Detroit Free Press:
Crete (Ill.) Monee cornerback Anthony Standifer committed to Michigan in June, but he is no longer pledged to the Wolverines. The 6-foot-1, 178-pound Standifer was one of five defensive backs committed to Michigan prior to his decommitment. He is a three-star prospect that Rivals.com considers the No. 46 cornerback in the nation and the No. 14 prospect in the state of Illinois.
Standifer is not the only defensive back in Michigan's current class, so the loss is not a horrible one. Four star recruits Jarrod Wilson (a safety) and Terry Richardson (a cornerback) are both highly touted prospects. Jeremy Clark and Allen Gant are also solid defensive back prospects that are committed tot he Wolverines.
