One-time UM recruit Swenson commits to Oklahoma

The Detroit News

Erik Swenson, an Illinois offensive line recruit, whose decommitment from Michigan after being informed there were no spots available prompted controversy, announced Saturday he’s attending Oklahoma.

The 6-foot-7, 285-pound tackle from Downers Grove, Ill., visited Norman, Okla., this weekend, according to Scout.com. The four-star recruit is ranked the No. 31 offensive tackle in the nation by Scout.

He also took an unofficial visit to Wisconsin last weekend, Scout.com reported.

Swenson committed to Michigan as a sophomore in 2013 when Brady Hoke was coach. He remained so until a few weeks ago when reportedly informed by a Michigan assistant coach to reopen his recruiting.

“My family and I were (taken) back by it," Swenson told the Chicago Tribune.
