A lot has changed since arguably the nation’s top junior quarterback, Ricky Town, gave his pledge to Alabama over the summer. His home-state school, USC, saw head coach Lane Kiffin get fired and Washington’s Steve Sarkisian get hired. And then Kiffin landed at Alabama to work with the offense–the offense Town would have played in soon. It’s funny how certain people cross paths over and over again.

On Saturday, Town Tweeted the following: “Today I have de-committed from Alabama. It was an honor to get to know Coach Saban and the Alabama fans. Thank you!”
Town now appears to be heading to USC. He’s 6-foot-4, 205 pounds and is expected to play early wherever he ends up. Town is from Ventura (Calif.).
Update: Town committed to Southern Cal shortly after decommiting from Alabama.
