    Re: Bama Loses Potential Recruit Ricky Town

    Del Rio leaving and a two-year player coming in who would get him to RS Sophomore (when you'd like to start new QBs at the earliest in most situations) shouldn't be swaying him away. I think it is more likely that he simply prefers the Sarkisian/Nussmeier QBC and OC approach to Kiffin's. It says a lot that he never considered USC seriously until the recent coaching carousal movement. Specifically with us losing Nuss, USC gaining a HC who employed Nuss before Alabama, and Alabama gaining USC's former HC Kiffin. Again, it is nothing against the kid. He needs to find the staff combination and position coach he is comfortable with making a long-term commitment. QB is a finicky position when it comes to head coaching, coordinator, and QB coach changes. I knew we were practically going to have to re-recruit Ricky Town into the new staff's approach and he just wasn't buying what we were selling.

    If Cornwell grabs the job and doesn't let go, then Town could have had to wait as long as three years if DC redshirts. That played a role, IMO. Just a really crowded looking depth chart. I was hoping it wouldn't scare him away, but maybe it did - or didn't and other places just look better.

    Yep. I've been expecting this actually. I'm not saying its over, but I would almost bet Town won't be coming Bama, as bad as I hate it.

    As always. Seems like Saban was already cultivating some options. Seems like they already thought Town was a tenuous commit after recent shakeups.

    Seem to have a tough time holding onto players from California but early reports indicated Town and family were really set for him to play at Bama. Looks like a really good prospect; hate to lose out on this one.

    Hopefully the current and future Bama QB's will make us forget any that got away.

    so who do we go after now?
    Due to the current workload, the light at the end of the tunnel will be temporarily turned off.

    Town's saw the potential of a star QB transferring to Alabama, and another red-shirt QB coming in and likely being ahead of him.
    Hand writing on the wall sez he's likely to get more playing time at USCw than at Alabama...
    Pretty simple really.

    In less than 24 hours after he de-commits from Bama "2015 QB Ricky Town Commits To USC"

    http://usc.247sports.com/
    Hand (Da'Shawn), the consensus choice by the major recruiting services as the nation's No. 1 defensive lineman, told 247Sports that each school in his top five has its own unique appeal to him.

    "All have their little pieces," Hand said. "At Auburn, I went to a construction site. At South Carolina, it was the linemen, at Michigan it was the sports marketing and at Alabama, it was Alabama. It's Alabama."

    That was to be expected. Admittedly, Sark has a way of making average quarterbacks look like all-stars, so no telling what he can do with a stud like Town. Plus, being a USC quarterback seems to guarantee being taken in the first 3 rounds of the draft no matter the skill set, so I can't say that this is a bad move for Town. I wish him well personally, and hope he never surpasses 7 wins.
