I'm not going to say that I personally know what's best for a 5-star defensive recruit that's trying to give himself the best chance at a mutually beneficial football career. The truth is, going to learn under Jim Harbaugh at a program that's experienced a huge resurgence since his arrival probably does give him the greatest odds of winning a National Championship while bolstering his NFL prospects. However, if things do happen to go drastically downhill then he'll only have himself to blame, because there were no shortage of red flags.
First it was the not-so-priority mail fiasco that originally urged him to 'Next Day Air' a re-opened recruitment...
“A day or two ago, they sent my mom a card thanking us for going to the Michigan bbq, but we never went,” Solomon said, via Kipp Adams of 247Sports.com. “I do not know which recruit they were talking to, but it was not me. It was just a little heartbreaking, for me to supposedly be so high on their list, for them to confuse me with someone else. Plus they spelled both of my names wrong after I told them, but that was not the main issue. I guess they do not have tabs on me.”
....and now his brain won't even let him annunciate the name of the university that he's consciously deciding to enroll at while putting on a hat sporting their logo. It would be one thing if Miami were one of his final cuts and the pressure from everyone watching forced him to slip up, but by all accounts the Hurricanes were never even in the running. You remember in the movie 'Liar, Liar' when Jim Carrey can't physically say that the blue pen is red? That's what this reminded me of. It's like Aubrey Solomon's mouth wouldn't allow itself to formulate "Michigan". I'm not usually the type to go around treating every weird matter of happenstance as if it's a sign from above, but when the abnormal becomes a pattern and it literally has you sitting on stage blurting out a completely irrelevant college that has no business being on the tip of your tongue? Might be wise to assume it's for a reason.
