A disappointing season for the Michigan Wolverines may be affecting the football team off the field as well. Five-star recruit, cornerback Jabrill Peppers announced Tuesday that he would visit other schools after originally committing to play for the Wolverines.
Peppers committed to Michigan back in May following his junior season at Paramus Catholic High School in New Jersey. The number two ranked recruit by ESPN, Peppers also received offers from Ohio State, Notre Dame, and other schools.
The uncertainty surrounding the Michigan football program and the future of its coaching staff following a rocky transition is believed to have contributed to Peppers’ decision to look for opportunities elsewhere. Michigan head coach Brady Hoke has put into action a team policy that the program will no longer pursue committed recruits if they back-out and visit other schools.
So what does Hoke’s policy mean for Peppers? Only time will tell.
