About 11 a.m. Tuesday, Douglas tweeted, "Just got off the phone with Michigan and got re offered #blessed."
Two hours later, the 5-foot-10, 181-pound cornerback was the 23d member of the recruiting class of 2013 to commit to Michigan. For comparison sake, Douglas' departure leaves the 2013 Penn State class at 12 players.
"This is all fresh and very new, and I can tell you I spent a fair amount of time on the phone with [coach Brady Hoke] yesterday in the aftermath of the announcement," Michigan athletic director Dave Brandon told annarbor.com. "One thing I can tell you is that we're never going to make public statements about our recruiting strategies or tactics. This is a brand-new set of circumstances that nobody has really dealt with in this way, and we're kind of trying to find our way through it."
Douglas reportedly had offers from Nebraska, Wisconsin, and Northwestern, among others outside the Big Ten Conference.
As of Tuesday afternoon, no other Class of 2013 recruits had publicly decommitted from Penn State.
The big prizes that will likely be Penn State coach Bill O'Brien's main focus from this class are five-star tight end Adam Breneman and four-star quarterback Christian Hackenberg.
Both had stood by their commitments to Penn State before the sanctions were announced.
