Four-star offensive lineman Emil Ekiyor, who was previously committed to Michigan, announced that he’s flipped to Alabama via Twitter on Sunday. He said earlier in the year that there was only one school he was considering flipping to and it looks like he’s done it.
Ekiyor thanked Wolverines coach Jim Harbaugh, his staff and the Michigan fan base for their support, but ultimately decided to continue his academic and football career as a member of the Tide.
Ekiyor ranks as the top player from the state of Indiana, the No. 2 center and the No. 105 overall prospect for the 2018 national recruiting cycle, according to the 247Sports Composite.
Ekiyor provides Alabama with its 12th official commit for its 2018 recruiting class, which currently ranks No. 24 overall. However, that will likely change with many of the Tide’s top remaining targets expected to commit closer to National Signing Day.
