Michigan's Signing Day Nightmare Continues As Top Recruit Flips to Georgia

Looks better than blue.

Earlier today, Ohio State won a huge recruiting battle over Michigan, earning a commitment from the nation's top offensive tackle, Nicholas Petit-Frere.

That wasn't even the worst thing to happen to Michigan in the span of an hour.

Just moments after Petit-Frere's decision, four-star linebacker Otis Reese – the Wolverines' top recruit and only top-100 prospect – flipped from Michigan to Georgia.

This means that for the first time since the 2011 season, Michigan will not sign a single player ranked inside the 247 Sports top 100.

Meanwhile, the Buckeyes now have 14 players – over half the class – ranked higher than Michigan's highest-rated recruit.
