SEC decommit list is at 17 players for ’15 and ’16


In last year’s recruiting cycle, we saw more than 80 players drop SEC programs in the class of 2014. If that doesn’t remind one of how crazy the recruiting process, we don’t know what will.

We are about nine months away from national signing day 2015 and already we have 13 players in the 2015 class who have decommitted and 4 more in the 2016 class already. This week, there was some news on the decommitment front when former Mississippi State DT recruit T.D. Moton (who dropped the Bulldogs in January) came aboard with Alabama. Also, after a nearly 9 month hiatus from the South Carolina recruiting class, defensive end Arden Key came back aboard with the Gamecocks.

  • Brian, Do you think this could be framed as describing a list of players who no longer have the confidence they can stay on top of their class or the class ahead of them for starting jobs? Because I don’t see them going to better programs and several of them are still uncommitted. When thousands and thousands of high school players get refined into a few hundred college starting jobs?, well the whole process is mind bending and might be one of the biggest untold sports stories of all time.
