15 high school football recruits have decommitted from SEC teams this year
Decommitments are a major topic in college football.
Often times, high school prospects make verbal commitments only to back off or decommit later in the year. With the new Early Signing Day, it’ll be interesting the effect it will have on decommitments, whether they will increase or decrease.
Thursday night, Louisville, Kentucky, DE Shawnkel Knight-Goff became the SEC’s 15th decommitment for the class of 2019 since January. Obviously, many more will be coming, but just five months into the year, 15 really isn’t all that many.
Ole Miss leads the SEC with three decommitments for the class of 2019, while Texas A&M and Kentucky are tied with two each. The teams that haven’t suffered a decommitment yet this year are Auburn, Missouri and Vanderbilt. That will surely change.
