For now, Michigan's 2012 football recruiting class is staying at 25 players. The Wolverines had a chance to add a 26th recruit on Friday night, but Chicago offensive tackle Jordan Diamond went in a different direction by choosing Auburn. The four-star tackle was also considering Arkansas and Wisconsin.
Last week, Michigan was in the mix for several undecided offensive linemen. So far, though, none have committed to the Wolverines. A week ago, Joshua Garnett picked Stanford over Michigan in a very close recruiting battle. This week, Chris Muller decided to sign with Rutgers after briefly considering a decommitment from the Scarlet Knights to Michigan. And on Friday night, of course, Diamond picked Auburn over the Wolverines.
The other offensive lineman Michigan missed out on in the last week was Alex Kozan. The Wolverines are still in the mix for him, though. Kozan committed to Iowa over Michigan and Auburn last Sunday, but he declined to sign his letter of intent on National Signing Day. The latest update on Kozan is that he is still deciding. We could hear about his decision in the next day or so, and right now there's no indication if Michigan, Iowa or Auburn has an edge for Kozan.
Once Kozan does make a decision, Michigan can close the book on its 2012 recruiting class. He is the only player the Wolverines are waiting to hear from now that Diamond has announced his decision.
