Ricky Town decommitted from attending Alabama and will attend USC now. Quarterback Ricky Town is considered a five-star player, giving USC a huge weapon for the 2015 college football season. According to a report from the school on Saturday (Jan. 25) he is indeed heading to California after many football analysts thought he would choose to stay with Alabama.

In the rankings of high school players, Town is currently the second ranked quarterback and one of the top overall prospects in the nation. That makes this a huge shift in the upcoming classes for the two schools and it could put the Alabama Crimson Tide in a difficult position when it comes to getting a new quarterback in place.

A statement that he issued reads in part, "I'm proud to be a part of the Trojan Family! I've seen many of the top programs and what they have to offer. However, when I had the chance to get on the USC campus last week and spend time with Coach Sarkisian and his staff, I knew after those meetings that USC is where I want to be."

It has been rumored that Ricky Town decided to decommit when Alabama offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier left to take the same position with the Michigan Wolverines. He was highly sought after, though, giving him quite a few other options. Offers from Arizona State, USC, Georgia, Florida State, Miami, and Texas had been extended to him in addition to what Alabama offered.
