One of the top linebackers in the country was supposed to visit Alabama this weekend, but his plans were changed by the Crimson Tide coaching staff, he says.
Jeffrey McCulloch, a four-star linebacker from Aldine Davis High School (Houston), told SEC Country that he has switched his visit plans from Alabama to Texas A&M this weekend because of the Crimson Tide’s “lack of recruitment.”
“Texas A&M wanted me more,” McCulloch said.
The linebacker said Alabama asked him to reschedule his visit to Jan. 29, but McCulloch declined. When he decided to pass, what did the Alabama coaches have to say about that?
“Nothing,” he said. “That’s why I changed.”
The 6-foot-3, 230-pounder listed Alabama, Texas A&M, Notre Dame, Stanford, Texas as his finalists as of two days ago. He’s now down to four with Alabama getting the boot from his final five because of the change to his visit plans. McCulloch told SEC Country on Tuesday that he was “extremely excited” about visiting Tuscaloosa.
McCulloch plans to make his commitment live on ESPNU on National Signing Day.
