For the second time this week, Michigan has finished second for a highly rated recruit. Earlier in the week, offensive guard Josh Garnett committed to Stanford over Michigan, and on Sunday, cornerback Armani Reeves picked Ohio State over the Wolverines, as announced on Twitter.
Reeves was once committed to Penn State, meaning yet another recruit has decommitted from the Nittany Lions to the Buckeyes. A big reason why Reeves became the latest to pick the Buckeyes likely revolves around the fact that high school teammate Camren Williams previously decommitted from Penn State to Ohio State.
After missing out on Garnett and Reeves this week, Michigan will hope to add a combination of offensive guard Alex Kozan, offensive tackle Jordan Diamond, offensive tackle Chris Muller and perhaps an off-the-radar prospect or two in the next week to close out its 2012 recruiting class.
