Michigan has lost its fifth prospect in the last month after the decommitment of 2017 three-star tight end Carter Dunaway.

“Thank you to the Michigan Football players, coaches, staff, and fans for their support and encouragement over the past year and a half,” he said. “After a discussion with coach [Jim] Harbaugh, it is in my best interest to pursue my athletic career elsewhere. I am still, and forever will be, a fan of the Wolverines, but it seems God has other plans in store for me. Good luck to the team this season. Thank you.”

Dunaway committed to play for the Wolverines on April 17, 2015.

The 6-foot-7, 230-pound athlete is ranked as the No. 1,289 player in the 2017 class, according to 247Sports. He is the 56th-best tight end and the No. 33 player from the state of Michigan.

Dunaway’s brother, Jack Dunaway, is a strong-side defensive end on the current Michigan football team. His father, Craig Dunaway, played for Michigan from 1980-1982 before being picked by the Pittsburgh Steelers with the 218th overall pick in 1983 NFL Draft.

It seems like Michigan might not grab a tight end in the 2017 class and with all the young talent at that position, the Wolverines should be fine. If the Wolverines do get a tight end, it will most likely be 2017 four-star Josh Falo from Inderkum High School in California.
