Yep, Nick Saban’s hire of Junior is already bearing fruit.
Even the presence of Lane Kiffin, Alabama’s new and heralded offensive coordinator, couldn’t help the Crimson Tide keep the one of the best quarterbacks the school has ever recruited.
Ricky Town, who is ranked as the nation’s No. 2 pro-style QB for 2015, announced on Twitter on Saturday that he had de-committed from Alabama.
The 6-foot-4 quarterback from Ventura, Calif., had committed to Alabama last summer, and the Crimson Tide became nervous when he made an unofficial visit last week to USC (Kiffin’s former employer).
Alabama’s Nick Saban tried to salvage Town’s commitment last week, making a recruiting trip to St. Bonaventure high school. It didn’t work…
Color me shocked. Evidently a Kiffin-less Southern Cal looks a lot more attractive to Town now. Go figure.
