Michigan football secured its second commitment on Sunday alone, as 2020 3-star defensive end prospect Aaron Lewis decided to flip his commitment from West Virginia to the Wolverines.
Please respect my decision. I am Happy to say I am now committed to the University of Michigan. #godbless pic.twitter.com/4lwm9jjZQL— aaron.lewis84 (@aaron_lewis71) June 23, 2019
The Williamstown, New Jersey native had been committed to West Virginia since April 17, but surprisingly took an official visit to Ann Arbor this weekend for the big recruiting event. That is when this recruitment took a turn for the worse for the Mountaineers.
At 6-foot-5 and 235 pounds, it will be interesting to see where Lewis winds up along Michigan’s defensive line. He could play the anchor end, but could also bulk up and end up on the inside. Only time will tell.
Lewis held other offers from West Virginia, Ohio State, Penn State, Nebraska, Miami (FL), Wisconsin, Texas A&M, Tennessee and more. He is the No. 434 recruit nationally, the No. 21 strong-side defensive end and the No. 13 recruit from New Jersey in his class, according to the 247Sports composite.
He joins 3-star Viper William Mohan as the second recruit to commit to Michigan today. The Wolverines now have 12 players committed to their 2020 class.
