Solomon rejoins Michigan recruiting class
Written by Matt Pargoff   


The path to becoming a Wolverine isn’t always a smooth one, and that’s certainly the case for Leesburg (Ga.) Lee County defensive tackle Aubrey Solomon. But at the end of the day, he elected to return to his original choice, making a commitment to Michigan on national signing day.

Solomon originally pledged to the Maize and Blue in mid-June, but after receiving a letter thanking him for attending event to which he was not present, he decided to rethink his decision and open up his recruitment, saying he had rushed the choice initially and would take more advice from his family and support group the second time around.

Taking official visits to Michigan, Alabama and Southern Cal, he eliminated the Trojans from his list, while continuing to look at in-state Georgia.

Standing in at 6-3, 290 pounds, Solomon is regarded as one of the elite prospects in the nation, garnering a five-star ranking from Rivals, Scout and 247 Sports, which each list him as one of the top-3 defensive tackles in the nation and a top-35 prospect overall. His lowest ranking comes from ESPN, which lists him as a four-star and the No. 63 overall player.

Solomon is the Wolverines’ eighth defensive lineman in the recruiting class, joined by Luiji Vilain, Corey Malone-Hatcher, Deron Irving-Bey, Phillip Paea, Donovan Jeter, James Hudson and Kwity Paye.
