HOSCHTON, Ga. – On Tuesday, Jalil Irvin announced on Twitter that he was no longer committed to Michigan’s 2018 class, saying he would give interviews on the subject on further notice.
Well, moments after his high school team Stone Mountain (Ga.) Stephenson lost to Hoschton (Ga.) Mill Creek, 32-7, late Friday night, Irvin finally addressed why he left his Michigan commitment.
“The major reason was a lack of communication,” Irvin said. “I haven’t talked to the coaches in two months. I was thinking, ‘Why would I stay committed here, when I haven’t heard from them in two months?’ So I decommitted and I picked up two offers the same day actually.”
Those offers, of course, came from nearby Georgia and Virginia Tech respectively.
And while he’s no longer committed to U-M, Irvin says the Wolverines are still one of his “dream” schools to play for and he plans to visit there in the near future.
“I’m still going to visit,” Irvin said of Michigan. “Like I said, they are still one of my dream schools. I’m going to get up there eventually, catch a game eventually.”
Further adding what he would like to see on his potential U-M visit.
“I guess just how they process the practice and just how the program works in general, like the facilities and all that good stuff,” Irvin said.
That being said, is Michigan still considered Irvin’s leader?
“Right now I don’t have a leader,” Irvin said. “I’m just enjoying it, I’m not going to commit again till probably my senior year.
Irvin also holds notable offers from Illinois and Tulane, and says he’s planning to visit Florida, Auburn, Tennessee and Florida State coming soon.
