Another surprise for the Wolverines.

Michigan has landed its second commitment of the day in the form of 2015 athlete Keith Washington (Prattville, Alabama), who has flipped his pledge to the Wolverines from California.

Washington has played a variety of positions in his high school career but defensive coordinator DJ Durkin said during Michigan's live stream that he will start out at cornerback and go from there.

Washington is the 76th ranked athlete in the country according to the 247 Composite and held offers from Louisville, North Carolina, TCU, Miami (FL), Missouri, and many more.

Michigan has a definite need at cornerback in this class with guys like Shaun Crawford and Garrett Taylor decommitting throughout the process. Their chances at five-star cornerback Iman Marshall seem rather slim, as well.

That being said, the Wolverines have already had two surprises today with more potentially on the way.
