Quarterback Messiah deWeaver of Wayne High in Huber Heights, Ohio, has decommitted from Michigan's 2016 recruiting class, he wrote on Twitter.

"After conversations with my family and God I am announcing that I will be reopening my recruitment and decommitting from the University of Michigan. Thank you to everyone who supported me and still supports me through this decision," he wrote.

The 6-4, 200-pound deWeaver committed to Michigan in June. He has been extended offers by Michigan State, Penn State, Indiana, Kentucky, Cincinnati and many others.

MSU hosted deWeaver for the "Spartan Elite Day" recruiting event in December.

"My first impression was the winning tradition at Michigan State," he told Spartan Digest's Mike Wilson at the time. "They have been a Top 10 program for the past four or five years. You can feel that coming in there. You get that winning tradition feeling. They just come off like winners."

After leading Trotwood (Ohio) Madison High for the past three seasons, deWeaver has transferred to Wayne High for his senior season.
