Michigan lost one commitment and gained one Sunday in the 2018 recruiting class.

Three-star running back Hassan Haskins of Eureka, Missouri, announced his commitment to the Wolverines Sunday night via Twitter.

Earlier, four-star offensive lineman Emil Ekiyor announced he was de-committing from Michigan and committing to Alabama.

The 6-foot-1, 202-pound Haskins is the 15th-ranked player in Missouri, per 247Sports.

Ekiyor tweeted his news on Sunday.

“This has been a difficult decision, and I have decided to de-commit from the University of Michigan,” he wrote on Twitter. “I would like to thank coach Harbaugh and his staff for believing in me and giving me the opportunity to play football at the University of Michigan. Also I would like to thank the Michigan fan base for their constant support.”
