Bama Loses Top QB Recruit to Georgia Tech


Quarterback Justin Thomas who was thought to be a solid Tide recruit, has now decided to sign with Georgia Tech.

According to the Atlanta Journal, Thomas’ father thought that Tech would give his son a better chance to play quarterback then Alabama.

“Alabama promised Justin on several different occasions that he would get the chance to play quarterback there,” the player’s father, Milton Thomas, told the AJC. “We did a lot of research. We know how Alabama uses their quarterbacks, and we know how Georgia Tech uses theirs. We just felt like Georgia Tech was a better fit for how Justin plays the quarterback position.”

If you read the full article, the Tide might still be in there for Thomas. According to the story, Thomas’ mom still liked Alabama and his father still had HUGE praise for Tide Coach Nick Saban.

“When Justin called Alabama to let them know he was de-committing, Coach Saban kept telling him ‘If your situation changes, you can always come home to play with us at Alabama.”

Sounds like it’s not over yet; don’t be surprise if Thomas changes his mind again in February.
