Offensive lineman Dan Samuelson no longer plans to attend Nebraska. The Plymouth, Ind., native has committed to Michigan, according to 247 Sports and

Samuelson, reportedly visiting the Michigan campus this weekend, had been wavering on his decision to attend Nebraska for a few weeks. He tweeted on Tuesday that he planned to choose between the Huskers and Wolverines on Monday.

Samuelson originally committed to NU in May (he’s also a former Pittsburgh commit).

The Huskers now have three offensive linemen among the 19 known prospects who make up their 2013 recruiting class — one of those linemen, Gabriel Miller, is slated to be a long snapper. Zach Hannon and David Knevel are the other two expected to contributed on the O-line.

Nebraska appeared to know that Samuelson might be gone since it’s recently offered two more linemen — Fresno (Calif.) City College’s Chongo Kondolo and Houston (Texas) prospect Dwayne Johnson — to come in for official visits next weekend. They’ll join JUCO prospect Matt Finnin, who also comes in for an official visit.
