The strange saga of Kevin Newsome's recruitment has taken another turn, as the standout prep quarterback reportedly has decommitted from Michigan. There had been rumors that Newsome was considering other schools after verbally committing to the Wolverines on April 25, but the quarterback squashed them at the FBU Top Gun Showcase last month in Florida.

Newsome could consider recommitting to the Wolverines, but he'll probably end up closer to his home in Virginia. Michigan will move forward with Shavodrick Beaver joining the mix next season.
