Recruiting is a lot like Newton’s laws of motion–for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.
That appears to be the case with the decommitment of five-star safety Laurence ‘Hootie’ Jones on Wednesday, and the subsequent move by four-star safety C.J. Hampton in the wee early hours of Thursday morning. Hampton, who has been on board with Ole Miss for more than a year, just dropped the Rebels.
And it’s been no big secret that Alabama wants him–badly. Hampton will announce his final school choice on Friday at 6:30 p.m. (EST) at his high school in Mississippi.
Hampton had 48 tackles and 3 INTs as a senior, and is slated to play in the U.S. Army All-America Bowl in San Antonio on Saturday, Jan. 4.
On the flip side, it looks like Jones might be eyeballing LSU again, but then again–who can tell with these teenagers.
