Messiah deWeaver (Dayton, Ohio), Michigan's 2016 quarterback pledge, announced Tuesday night that he his decommiting from the Wolverines and reopening his recruitment, per his Twitter account.

"After conversations with my family and God, I am announcing that I will be reopening my recruitment and decommitting from the University of Michigan," he said. "Thank you to everyone who supported me and still supports me through this decision."

deWeaver committed to Michigan back in June 2014 after an offer from Brady Hoke's staff during a camp at Michigan. Jim Harbaugh has visited him recently, but it is not much of a surprise that he is deciding to go in another direction.

He is a four-star prospect and the 14th ranked pro-style quarterback in the class of 2016, according to the 247 Composite.

Michigan is now without a signal-caller for their 2016 cycle. The staff has already been in contact with other players, such as Jacob Eason, Shea Patterson and KJ Costello.
