Jordan Payton said on his Twitter account Monday evening that he would not be making his commitment on Tuesday as the Westlake Village (Calif.) Oaks Christian wide receiver is still reviewing his options.
After his weekend official visit to Notre Dame, the four-star said the Irish and Michigan are now tied at the top after everything went well in South Bend.
Since Payton wants to be absolutely certain of his decision, the 6-foot-2, 199-pound prospect will hold off a little while longer.

"It went really well," Payton said of his Notre Dame trip. "I liked the whole campus and the atmosphere and the coaches were great. The trip went really well.
"I think it's fair to say it was electric. I was definitely shocked. I liked it a lot. They're definitely in the picture. They're up there with Michigan. They're both tied."
Michigan had emerged as the leader for Payton, who had been committed to USC but decided to re-open his recruitment this summer after not being sure the Trojans were the right fit for him.
The Wolverines thoroughly impressed Payton earlier this year when he visited for their thrilling win over, coincidentally, Notre Dame.
"I liked everything about it," Payton said of Michigan. "The school, the football, the coaches, the players, it was just an overall good time. It was a great school, too."
Earlier on Monday, Payton said he was still undecided on whether he would commit on Tuesday but later on said it would not happen.
Payton, rated No. 18 at wide receiver and No. 118 in the 2012 class by Rivals.com, said he would still consider taking other official visits even if he makes his decision prior to hitting the road.
He's scheduled a trip to Penn State in November and Arizona State and Cal could also be under consideration.
