4-star QB announces decommitment from Ole Miss
Ole Miss lost its crown jewel of the 2020 recruiting class Tuesday with the de-commitment of 4-star quarterback Robby Ashford. The 4-star prospect announced on Twitter he will reopen his recruitment.
“After taking some time to think things over, to pray, and to speak with my parents, I have decided to decommit from Ole Miss.”
Ashford originally committed to Ole Miss in June. He didn’t go into details about why he de-committed, but it’s probably a fair guess to say new coach Lane Kiffin had something to do with it. Ole Miss fired previous head coach Matt Luke, who Ashford committed to during the summer, after the season.
Ashford is ranked as the No. 10 dual-threat quarterback in the 2020 recruiting class. He reportedly chose Ole Miss instead of Auburn, Florida, Florida State, Georgia and several other Power 5 schools.
Without Ashford, Ole Miss is left with only 3-star prospects for the 2020 class. According to the 247Sports Composite Rankings, the Rebels class is ranked 44th nationally and 11th in the SEC.
