One of the crown jewels of Alabama’s 2015 recruiting class has decommited from the Crimson Tide. On Saturday afternoon, five-star quarterback Ricky Town tweeted the news.
Today I have de-committed from Alabama. It was an honor to get to know Coach Saban and the Alabama fans. Thank you!

While he gave no official reason, Town’s decision may be based on the news that Florida State backup Jacob Coker will likely be transferring to Alabama. With a stable full of underclassmen quarterbacks already on the roster, Town’s camp may feel there will be too much of a logjam in Tuscaloosa.
*UPDATE* Town has committed to the USC Trojans.
