Rancho Santa Margarita (CA) Santa Margarita Catholic defensive end Collins Acheampong flipped from Michigan to Miami on Tuesday.
Acheampong is listed at 6'7", 254 lbs. and is a 247 Composite 4-star, the #9 athlete, and #165 overall. He committed to Michigan back in July. That commitment came on the heels of it looking like he might commit to Miami, so this dalliance has been going on a long time. Acheampong also recently took visits to UCLA and USC.
Acheampong was the highest rated player in Michigan's class, but the Wolverines have other edge players in the fold, including Enow Etta, Aymeric Koumba, and fresh commit Jason Hewlett. Etta may turn into an interior player and Hewlett has some versatility at 6'4" and 220 lbs., but there are at least some solid pieces to work with.
This is the fourth decommit in the class of 2023, where Acheampong joins DT Joel Starlings (North Carolina), TE Andrew Rappleyea (Penn State), and LB Raylen Wilson (Georgia).
