Ricky Town is the No. 2 pro-style quarterback prospect in the 2015 class according to 247Sports Composite Rankings. He de-committed from Alabama on Saturday.
One of the top quarterback prospects in the country for the Class of 2015, Ricky Town (Ventura, Calif./St. Bonneventure, announced via Twitter today that he has de-committed from Alabama.
"Today I have de-committed from Alabama. It was an honor to get to know (head coach) Nick Saban and the Alabama fans. Thank you!," the five-star signal caller announced.
After his announcement, the 247Sports Crystal Ball started trending toward USC. Prior to his pledge to the Crimson Tide, Town developed an excellent relationship with Trojans head coach Steve Sarkisian when Sarkisian was the head coach at Washington.
Town will visit USC unofficially today.
The re-opening of his recruitment certainly was met with celebration by Trojans fans on FightOn247.
Things began to trend toward a de-commitment following Saban's hiring of Lane Kiffin, ironically the former head coach at USC, as the Crimson Tide's new offensive coordinator. Alabama also is trying to land Florida State transfer Jacob Coker, a Yellowhammer State native and the back-up to Seminoles Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston this past season. Per BamaOnline.com's Tim Watts, Coker is visiting Tuscaloosa this weekend.
Town is the No. 2 pro-style quarterback prospect nationally for the Class of 2015 according to 247Sports Composite rankings and is a contender to be the top overall prospect in the 2015 class.
