Iowa commit Ben VanSumeren receives Michigan offer

Iowa got a commitment from tight end/linebacker Ben VanSumeren last month. But could another Big Ten team change his mind late in the recruiting process?

VanSumeren tweeted Thursday that he picked up an offer from Michigan. An Essexville, Mich. native, VanSumeren would have the opportunity to stay in his home state with the Wolverines.

Michigan extended the offer on the same day the team missed out on 2018 tight end Tommy Tremble, who picked Notre Dame over Jim Harbaugh’s program.

A onetime Western Michigan commit, VanSumeren picked up the Iowa offer in October and committed to the Hawkeyes on Nov. 10. Ranked as the No. 12 player in Michigan in the 247Sports composite rankings, VanSumeren is one of 15 recruits verbally committed to Iowa’s 2018 class.

VanSumeren took his official visit to Iowa last weekend.

Players can make their commitments official next week when the early signing period begins on Wednesday.
