Deontay Burnett, a three-star receiver from Gardena, Calif, told Scout.com on Sunday that reports that he had committed to Michigan were premature.

"I told my coach I was going to commit but never actually did it, so there was some miscommunication there," Burnett told Greg Biggins of Scout.com. "When I told him I was going to commit, I know he went and told some people and word leaked out."

Burnett, who committed to Washington State last offseason, made an official visit to Michigan over the weekend, the last time schools can host recruits before Wednesday's first day of the official signing period for the 2015 class. Burnett would have been coach Jim Harbaugh's 10th commitment.

The 5-foot-11, 160-pound Burnett played for Junipero Serra High in Gardena. He is rated three stars by several recruiting services.

"I decided I didn't want to make an emotional decision on the visit," Burnett told Scout's Biggins.

"Right now, I'm pretty confused about everything and I'm still considering Washington State and Arizona State too. I don't know when I'll make a final decision; it could be on Signing Day or sooner if I know for sure.

Michigan hosted several recruits this weekend, including four-star receiver Van Jefferson, formerly a Georgia commit, who last weekend committed to Ole Miss. Jefferson is the son of former Detroit Lions receiver coach, Shawn Jefferson, who coached there from 2005-2012. Van Jefferson, a 6-foot-2, 183-pound receiver, attended Orchard Lake St. Mary's before moving to Tennessee where his father is now receivers coach for the Titans.

Jarius Adams, a three-star defensive back who is committed to Rutgers, also visited Michigan this weekend and according to a report on Scout.com, he will make a final decision on Tuesday.
