National Signing Day is just 10 days away, but Michigan commit, offensive tackle Kai-Leon Herbert, announced Sunday that he has de-committed from the program.

Herbert visited with the Miami Hurricanes over the weekend, and wanted to open up his recruitment. Being from Florida, it seems like he wants to stay close to home, which is why Florida and Miami are two of his top schools at the moment. Auburn is also in the mix.

According to Land of 10, one of the reasons he decided to de-commit is because Jedd Fisch, who was one of his head recruiters, left for the offensive coordinator position at UCLA.

247sports.com has Herbert as the 28th overall offensive tackle in the 2017 class, and the 252nd overall recruit. 247’s Crystal Ball has Herbert leaning towards Florida (71 percent).

Even with the de-commitment, Michigan has 26 commitments in this year’s class, with a few more guys in the mix, including Nico Collins, Willie Gay and former Wolverine commit Aubrey Solomon.
