Exodus begins? Recruit exits Penn State

BY foxsports • July 24, 2012

It didn't take long — just a little over 24 hours, in fact.
Penn State's rivals are benefitting from what could become a mass exodus of football players and recruits. 
Avon (Ohio) class of 2013 cornerback prospect Ross Douglas decommitted from Penn State Monday following the announcement of NCAA sanctions against the Penn State football program. On Tuesday, Douglas used his Twitter account to announce he's now committed to Michigan. 
Douglas tweeted on Tuesday morning, "just got off the phone with Michigan and got re-offered. #Blessed." Early Tuesday afternoon he announced he'd chosen Michigan. 
He was using the Twitter handle "RDouglas_21." Before Monday, his Twitter handle was "RDPSU_21." 
Douglas was tweeting on Monday and Tuesday with a pair of highly touted Michigan commits, quarterback Shane Morris of California and running back Dymonte Thomas of Alliance, Ohio. 
Scout.com ranks Douglas as the 42nd best cornerback prospect in his class and a three-star recruit.
Douglas was a two-way standout for Avon's Div. II state runner-up team in Ohio last season. Scout.com lists him at 5-11, 180, and with a 4.41 40-yard dash time.
