Sorry Michigan: Dee Hart an early enrollee at ‘Bama

Demetrius Hart, Colt Lyerla

During the U.S. Army All-American Bowl — on NBC — former Michigan commit Dee Hart “officially” flipped his verbal to Alabama.

Unfortunately for those in Ann Arbor, any hope of the runn back flipping back to the Wolverines has been dashed.

According to the Tuscaloosa News, Hart is one of nine high schoolers who enrolled for the spring term last week.  All of the early enrollees will be available for spring practice in a couple of months.

Once a “hard” commitment to the Wolverines, the Orlando high school back de-committed from Michigan due to the uncertainty swirling around the football program.  Of particular concern was the uncertain fate of head coach Rich Rodriguez.

Hart is currently rated as the No. 1 all-purpose back in the country by Rivals.com, and the No. 17 player at any position.

    Wonder what made Saban reverse his course on Dee enrolling early?

    Could it have to do with a shirt that is colored gray being offered and then countered with a full scholarship from the defending national champs?

    Who all is gonna get grayshirted in their class?

    This is a little strange, but if it is true and Dee plays for ‘Bama he will be a big asset to the program. Saban always recruited well but this one, together with the others, he has surpassed his previous marks, we believe.

    They lost Ryan Mallett bringing in Rodriguez and now Dee Hart getting rid of him. That was a costly experiment, talentwise.

    Thrilled for us though … especially since Mark is leaving sniff sniff :cry:

    ROLL TIDE!!

    Sorry bitter WV people (ben & John) – Dee Hart announced for Alabama 2 weeks ago. Maybe the news travels slowly in the mountains…

    mketto13,

    First of all, John wrote the article. Please direct all snarky comments solely toward him.

    Secondly, JT resides in Ohio and I’m in Texas and news does travel slowly when it’s being delivered by horse and buggy. Please be more considerate in the future.

    If we’re going to start over in Michigan, I guess we’ll REALLY start over!

    This fall-out stuff is academic and totally expected. Too bad though, he’s a good kid and player.

    Go Blue! and Roll Tide…I guess.

    I’m just happy to have an evil alter ego. Or, maybe you’re the good one.

    Probably the latter.
