Michigan football has lost a member of its 2022 recruiting class.

Four-star defensive tackle Alex VanSumeren (Essexville Garber) announced Thursday night via Twitter that he was re-opening his recruitment.

Although I will always be grateful for the opportunity, I am no longer committed to the University of Michigan," VanSumeren tweeted. "My recruitment is open."

VanSumeren, the younger brother of U-M redshirt junior linebacker Ben VanSumeren, was the longest-tenured member of the Wolverines' recruiting class of '22. He originally committed on Dec. 16, 2019.

He is ranked No. 223 overall and the No. 4 prospect in Michigan. VanSumeren has reported offers from Alabama, Michigan State and Penn State, among others. He was a member of the Detroit Free Press 2020 football Dream Team after posting 58 tackles, 18 tackles for loss, 10 sacks and three forced fumbles as a junior.

Michigan now has five commitments in the 2022 class: Taylor Groves, Kody Jones, Marlin Klein, Davonte Miles (River Rouge) and Connor Jones.
