Shake up coming to #Michigan's 2016 OT board?

According to The Wolverine's Michael Spath, longtime Michigan commit OT Erik Swenson may not end up signing with UM.

On top of that, Michigan's recruiting coordinator Matt Dohety has recently started following OT EJ Price.

A2 --> NJ --> LA --> San Fran --> Orlando --> Atlanta --> NJ --> A2 Catch me if you can & GoBlue! #SignwiththeStars

That stop in ATL makes a lot more sense now if it is indeed for EJ Price, who is from the ATL area.

***UPDATE: Elysee-Mbem-Bosse (LB) is the likely reason for the ATL stop.

I have never seen this. Not saying it didn't happen but this situation is a surprise to me. It is also very late in the process for the staff to go cool all of a sudden. Swenson pledged to Hoke and then essentially re-upped with Harbaugh. If the current staff didn't think Swenson would be part of the class they should have cut him loose last year. Maybe they did but this seems very late in the game.

The recruiting sites' claimed sources are from someone who is close to the coaching staff fwiw. The feeling isn't just based on his rankings but also insider info which claims that he just hasn't gotten any better since he was a sophomore.  

Edit: this is what I've read on free message boards. I'm not poaching from the pay sites.

I don't mind all the #crootin stuff. I'm pretty confident about this class. It's literally the exact opposite feeling I had during Hoke's last year since the ND game.
