Class of 2017 four-star quarterback Jake Fromm has given the recruiting world its first coup, having announced on Twitter that he has switched his commitment from Alabama to Georgia.
This means that Fromm will be playing for new Bulldogs head coach Kirby Smart, who served as Alabama’s defensive coordinator ever since the start of Nick Saban’s tenure in Tuscaloosa.
The decision makes sense on Fromm’s end, as Alabama is set to have two young men in Cooper Bateman and Blake Barnett competing for the starting quarterback’s job for the 2016 season. Yes, Fromm wouldn’t arrive on campus until the following year, but going to Georgia and playing behind Jacob Eason makes more sense and provides less of a chance of getting buried on the depth chart.
Needless to say, with great size at 6-foot-3, 220 pounds and a perfect fit for the pro-style offense Georgia will likely be running, Fromm’s decision ensures that the Bulldogs will certainly be a team to watch in the future.
