Alabama recruiting continued to stay busy in the last week. Here are the latest updates Alabama’s recruiting targets. All star ratings and rankings come from the 247Sports composite:
-Four-star running back Dameon Pierce has decided to decommit from Alabama. Pierce, who ranks as the No. 5 running back in this year’s class, had been committed to the Crimson Tide since July 1, 2016.

-Five-star wide receiver Justyn Ross has been recruited heavily by Alabama for a while now. Being the No. 1 player in Alabama, the Crimson Tide have gone after him time and time again.

Ross’ mother, Charay Franklin, recapped the call and said, “It was pretty cool to talk to someone as famous as he is and someone everybody idolizes and loves. He talked about more of the academics, all the support staff with academics who help out and all the steps they go through to make sure he’s doing what he’s supposed to do while he’s in class and in school.”
