Five-star Oklahoma native Daxton Hill, one of OSU’s top targets in the 2019 recruiting class, flipped his commitment in a signing day shocker from Alabama back to Michigan — the program he originally committed to.
Hill had picked the Wolverines over Oklahoma State, Alabama, OU and a slew of others back in September, then had a change of heart when he de-committed and flipped on Dec. 8 to Alabama. His decision to flip from Alabama back to Michigan came when UM dropped a bombshell of a tweet that Hill sent his NLI to UM on Wednesday.
Welcome to Michigan, ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ safety Daxton Hill! @daxhill5

Hill is the younger brother of OSU running back Justice Hill and was the focus of OSU’s recruiting efforts for over a year. A 6-0.5, 186 pound safety, he’s ranked as the No. 8 player in the 2019 class and the top safety in the country.
