One of the top 2012 football recruits, offensive tackle Kyle Kalis, has changed his mind about heading to Ohio State and has switched his commitment to rival Michigan.

"I can't go there (Ohio State) and take penalties for something I never did," Kalis told on Monday. "Ohio State is a great program. I'm just not sure how long it will take them to recover. I want a solid, grounded coaching staff with a safe environment. Where there aren't such tough questions."..."When I de-committed to (Ohio State coach) Luke Fickell I called him and told him and he understood where I'm coming from," Kalis said. "With the turmoil and uncertainty I just couldn't."..."He is the type of guy I want to play for," Kalis said. "(Hoke) has an incredible amount of passion. I believe the Michigan-Ohio border is now open. I think you're going to see eight or nine guys from the state of Ohio going over to Michigan this year."
Kalis is a 6-foot-5, 306-pounder out of St. Edward High School in Lakewood. He is considered one of the nation's top offensive line recruits. He's ranked 140th overall and 20th at his position in the ESPNU 150.
