Roquan Smith did not make many fans in Ann Arbor on Wednesday.

The 4-star linebacker recruit, per 247 Sports, held a news conference at his high school to announce where he would be playing college football.

His finalists: the UCLA Bruins, the Michigan University Wolverines and the University of Georgia Bulldogs.

Wait, "Michigan University"?

Nope http://t.co/qaEleuS6bS

The folks at the University of Michigan probably knew their chances of landing Smith were slim at that point.

Smith committed to UCLA, so at least he knew the name of the school he was choosing.
