Prattville High School (AL) multipurpose standout Justin Thomas has decommitted from the University of Alabama in an effort to maintain his desire to play quarterback at the collegiate level.
Thomas, who is listed as a four-star prospect by Rivals.com, was targeted by Alabama as a defensive back…not a quarterback.
“Justin decommitted this morning,” said Prattville head coach Jamey Dubose. “Alabama told him he was going to play defensive back, and he wants to play quarterback. Alabama was honest with him and hats off to Justin and his family for sticking with what he wants to do. Alabama and Justin left it on good terms and to be honest this is the best on both parties.”
Thomas has reopened his recruitment with the hopes of becoming a multifaceted quarterback at the next level, rather than a multi-position athlete.
Thomas’ college choices include, but are not limited to, Florida State, Georgia Tech, and LSU.
