Although Michigan has already announced its 2012 football recruiting class, it appears the Wolverines are still waiting to hear from two recruits. One of them, offensive tackle Jordan Diamond, will make his announcement on Friday. When a decision or an announcement will be made by the other undecided recruit, offensive guard Alex Kozan, is unclear.
Based on multiple reports, it appears Kozan, who committed to Iowa on Sunday, is having second thoughts. Wednesday morning it was reported that he had not yet made a final decision, and a more recent report states that he is struggling to make a decision about where he will attend college.

Kozan was not included in Iowa's National Signing Day recruiting list, so no letter of intent has been sent in there. No letter of intent has been sent in to Michigan or Auburn, either. Those are the two other schools he was considering before he committed to Iowa, and now it looks like they are both back in the mix for Kozan.
Neil Devlin reports that Kozan is "taking his time and hoping to make the right move," so this could be a situation that takes a few days to be resolved. Michigan is likely more than willing to wait, as landing Kozan when all is said and done would be a nice surprise. If Michigan somehow managed to land both Kozan and Diamond after National Signing Day, then some recruiting rankings would likely need to be revised. Each player is a four-star recruit, and Michigan would likely receive a bump in the rankings if it can land even one of them.
