Which 2015 commit has decided to decommit and look elsewhere? Which 2015 TE target committed Sunday night? Find out in this Monday's version of "The Future Huddle."
2015 Defensive Back Shaun Crawford has decommitted from the University of Michigan.
No longer a commit to Michigan Football.

Well, what we all knew was eventually coming became official Saturday.
After spending last weekend at Notre Dame and booking a trip to Columbus, Crawford has officially decided to decommit from Michigan. Shaun is currently ranked as the #100 overall prospect and #9 CB for the 2015 recruiting cycle according to 24/7's composite rankings.
Although losing a 4 star cornerback will hurt, it’s not the end of the world for Michigan. The Wolverines have a very young and talented secondary that will be getting a big boost this September, when Jabrill Peppers puts on the “winged helmet.” Don’t get me wrong, Crawford will definitely be a good cornerback at the FBS level but, with the depth Michigan has already and two 2015 recruits still committed, Crawford may get more playing time early on somewhere else.
Michigan currently has defensive backs Tyree Kinnel and Garrett Taylor committed for the 2015 cycle.
2015 4 Star TE Commits
2015 TE Hale Hentges announced his college decision last night.
After much deliberation and prayer, I have decided to play football at The University of Alabama! #RollTide
— Hale Hentges (@HaHentges) May 26, 2014
Hentges becomes the 16th member for Alabama’s already impressive commit list. Hale spoke with 24/7’s Charles Power about why he wanted to play at Bama;
“I wanted to play for a program that has a pro-style offense that's going to use multiple tight ends. Everyone at Alabama (tight ends) have come out (to the NFL) the last few years under coach Saban and that was really intriguing.”
I was never really under the belief that Michigan would land Hale at any point in his recruitment. Ohio State and Alabama seemed like the front-runners for the past couple months. Michigan will now turn towards Chris Clark; who will announce his decision at the Nike Opening this summer and Tyrone Wheatley Jr.
Hale was offered by the coaching staff in January and visited Ann Arbor for the spring game.
2015 WR Miles Boykin announced his Top 10 via Twitter on Monday afternoon.
Boykin will visit Ann Arbor on June 5th.
2015 S Rashad Roundtree was scheduled to announce his top 5 last Friday. He has delayed his announcement until later this summer. Rashad was offered by the coaching staff a couple weeks ago and, I think it's highly unlikely Michigan makes his Top 5.
2016 LB Brendan Ferns will visit Ann Arbor this upcoming Thursday. Brendan is brothers with 2014 commit Michael Ferns.
2015 DE Dre’Mont Jones announced his top 3 this weekend consisting of Ohio State, Michigan and Notre Dame. The 3 star DE has a crystal ball that is 100% in favour of OSU.
Hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable Memorial Day!
