Ohio CB Ross Douglas commits to Michigan day after decommitting from Penn State

By Jerry Hinnen | College Football Writer

It didn't take Avon, Ohio cornerback recruit Ross Douglas very long to make up his mind where he wanted to play college football after hearing about Penn State's NCAA sanctions.

It was only minutes after Monday morning's NCAA announcement that Douglas publicly decommitted from the Nittany Lions. And it was barely more than 24 hours later when he sent this tweet:

Douglas had committed to Penn State in February over offers from Michigan, Nebraska, and Wisconsin. A 5-10, 180-pound cover corner, Douglas is considered a four-star prospect by most of the major recruiting services.

Douglas's commitment is the 23rd of Brady Hoke's 2013 recruiting class, and the fourth in the defensive backfield, alongside fellow Ohio products Gareon Conley and Dymonte Thomas and Detroit native Jourdan Lewis.

Douglas's departure is likely only the first of many from the 2013 Penn State recruiting class, though for the time being the linchpins of the current 12-member class -- tight end Adam Breneman and quarterback Christian Hackenburg -- have stood by their commitments.
