Joel Starlings, a four-star defensive lineman in the 2023 class, has resigned from the Michigan Wolverines, he announced Sunday night on Twitter.
"Dear family, friends and supporters. I want to thank God for blessing me and giving me the tools and abilities to practice the sport I love. I want to thank the University of Michigan for showing the hospitality they have shown me and "My family. With the change in the coaching situation in my position at the University of Michigan, I and my family have decided to reopen my recruitment from here. With this decision, I will keep all options open to other schools. God save! #RespectMyDecision."
The 6-foot-5, 310-pound commitment to Michigan back in November after the Wolverines beat Ohio State. He is the first customer to be exempt from Wolverines in this recruitment cycle.
As Mike Elston takes over the defensive line coaching job at Ann Arbor for the outgoing Shaun Nua, so many other prospects on the board of Michigan, it will be interesting to see if Wolverines continue to recruit him.
This is a development story.
