Moments after Alabama won a national championship, a former Crimson Tide commit was celebrating the win as if he were a part of this year’s recruiting class.
Jaquan Yulee, a four-star linebacker from Indian River High School (Chesapeake, Va.), told SEC Country after Alabama’s fourth championship in seven years that the Crimson Tide have a good chance to regain his commitment.
“You never know what God has planned out for me. Only time will tell,” Yulee said.
The 6-foot, 252-pounder, who is rated as the nation’s No. 9 inside linebacker, de-committed from Alabama on Jan. 7 citing his due diligence of making sure Tuscaloosa, Ala., was the right home for him.
“After a long talk with my family, I decided to de-commit from Alabama and open up my recruitment,” Yulee said on his Twitter account. “I still love Bama. I just want to make sure I’m making the right choice.”
Yulee had been committed to Alabama for six months, and he chose the Tide over offers from Virginia Tech and North Carolina.
