Eight SEC decommitments already with a year to go before signing

Coming next week starting Feb. 24–Quarterback Week! We take a look at the top 2015 signal caller targets for SEC schools, talk to them about what’s on their minds … and where they might end up.

In the 2014 signing class, nearly 90 athletes parted ways with their original SEC school–whether it was because of a decommitment, grade issues or the school just dropping them.

Think the 2015 is immune? You’d be wrong. Already, there have been eight decommitments–including Chauncey Rivers dropping South Carolina for in-state Georgia earlier this week. And the rumor is that his prep teammate at Stephenson HS in Georgia, Dexter Neal, might be thinking about leaving the Gamecocks to go elsewhere–namely Tennessee.

Don’t be surprised if several of these athletes ended up either back with their original SEC school or at another one.

Here’s a look at the eight 2015 SEC recruits (and two 2016 recruits) who have backed off their commitments to look around or join another program’s class.
