Yulee (Fla.) five-star athlete Derrick Henry decommitted from Georgia on Wednesday after spending a few days on an unofficial visit to Alabama. Henry later released a statement clarifying his recruitment:
“This has been a great experience getting to know so many great coaches and visiting some of the best college football programs in the country. Even though I’ve worked really hard to put myself in this situation, I know I’m blessed to have this opportunity I’m very thankful for that.Spending a few days with Nick Saban obviously caused a few raised eyebrows regarding Henry's commitment status. While many thought he may eventually open things back up when he first committed to Georgia, there's no question that Alabama has likely moved into the lead for his services and a pledge to the program may be forthcoming.
“For me personally, this is one of the biggest decisions I’ll make in my life and probably the most important to this point. I want to be 100 percent sure I am making the best choice on where I go to college and to play football. I’m going to open up my recruitment and take some more visits, get as much information as I can, and then decide from there. I was probably a little too quick in making my initial decision and got caught up in the moment so I apologize for that. I’m still considering Georgia and I have nothing but great things to say about their program, but I want to be honest with everyone in the fact that I am going to go over all my options and do what is best for me and my athletic and academic career.
“For the rest of the summer, I am focusing on helping my team have the best season that we can have and achieve our team goals. Please refer any questions about my recruitment to my head coach. I’m not sure when I’ll make a final announcement, but when I have no doubts at all about where I’m going, I’ll let everyone know."
