As reported this morning by both Rivals and 247Sports, McGraw has decommitted from Georgia and given his verbal to Alabama for 2015, the 21st commitment for the Crimson Tide.
McGraw, a four-star prospect from Ensworth High School in Nashville, Tennessee, stands 6-feet tall and tops the scale at 190-pounds.
An 'official' announcement will happen later today. I can now confirm four-star DB Rico McGraw has flipped from #UGA to #Alabama @TideSportsNot long after the news broke concerning McGraw's intentions, Rivals produced an interview with Leigh Ann Clark, McGraw's mother, explaining her son's decision.

In respect to the big picture in terms of Tide recruiting, McGraw is not only the second verbal commitment this week, but also the second recruit to seek greener pastures. Safety Ronnie Harrison, originally committed to North Carolina, gave his verbal pledge to Alabama on Tuesday.
It’s July 31, Alabama has 21 commitments already and have 10% of the Rivals100.
