Alabama has been connected to a lot of elite quarterback prospects in the Class of 2017, but the Crimson Tide are starting to run out of options.
Bailey Hockman, a four-star prospect and the No. 7 pro-style quarterback, committed Sunday to Florida State. Hockman, a lefty from Powder Springs, Ga., was once committed to Georgia but re-opened his recruitment on Dec. 14, 2015.
UGA moved on from Hockman and landed a commitment from another in-state four-star QB, Jake Fromm. The No. 3 pro-style QB in 2017, Fromm de-committed from Alabama on March 3, the same day he pledged his services to the Bulldogs.
Alabama was also in the mix for four-star quarterbacks Jake Bentley, who committed to South Carolina, and Davis Mills, who committed to Stanford. The Crimson Tide remain a strong contender to land the No. 2 dual-threat QB in the country, Tua Tagovailoa from Hawaii.
SEC Country’s Chris Kirschner wrote last week that Hockman and Tagovailoa were at the top of Alabama’s wish list among quarterbacks who were not committed to other programs.
