Nation’s top safety Daxton Hill flips from Michigan football to Alabama

Recruiting is all about the finish. 

And Michigan football wasn't able to finish with 5-star safety Daxton Hill. 

Hill, the No. 1 safety prospect in the 2019 class from Tulsa's Booker T. Washington high school, announced his decommitment from the Wolverines and simultaneous pledge to the Alabama Crimson Tide on Saturday night, less than three months after committing to coach Jim Harbaugh's program, and fewer than two weeks away from the start of the early signing period Dec. 19.

The 6-foot, 186-pound Hill — regarded by many as the fastest player in the 2019 class — was the top-ranked prospect in Michigan's 2019 recruiting class.

“I would like to thank the University of Michigan for their love and support throughout this time recruiting me," Hill wrote on Twitter. "Thank you to all the coaches at Michigan that took their time to come see me play or reached out to make sure everything was well with my family and I. This was a tough decision for me and my family but I have decided to de-commit from the University of Michigan and flip my commitment to the University of Alabama.”
