Alabama Loses Commitment Justin Thomas

Justin Thomas, a four-star athlete from Prattville, Alabama has decommitted from the Alabama Crimson Tide. This change of heart apparently stems from a disagreement over which position Thomas will play at the next level:

Tide commit Justin Thomas decommits b/c he wants to play QB and Bama wants him as a KR/WR
Dec 13 via webFavoriteRetweetReply

Thomas is an explosive athlete who happens to play quarterback for Prattville High. He is not considered an elite quarterback prospect, but isn't terrible at the position. He's certainly not a four-star level prospect as a quarterback.

If Thomas has his heart set on playing quarterback, this is the right choice. Alabama runs a conservative, pro-style offense that puts an emphasis on the quarterback making smart decisions above everything else. Nick Saban's team has never shown a willingness to adapt the offense to use a quarterback's legs. 

Thomas makes things happen with his feet, and makes a lot of mistakes as well. He'll need to find an offense that fits his skillset. Alabama obviously hates to lose a kid of Thomas' caliber, but it's important that both sides know the deal before enrolling.
