4-star defensive back Rico McGraw has de-committed from Alabama, and is reportedly eying Georgia as his top choice.

More from Georgia Football Recruiting

According to a report from 247Sports, Rico McGraw — a 4-star DB and top recruit out of the state of Tennessee — has de-committed from Alabama and is “looking heavily” at Georgia as he reopens his recruitment.

From the 247 Sports report:

"McGraw, the 6-foot, 190-pound cornerback/safety out of Ensworth High School (Nashville) had been rumored to be looking heavily at Georgia in the days leading up to National Signing Day and has enjoyed a good relationship with Bulldogs’ defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt."

Ah, coach Pruitt strikes again.

If McGraw does choose Georgia, it will be a return to his original commitment to the Bulldogs that he made in 2014 before flipping to Alabama in July.

McGraw is ranked at the No. 20 safety in the nation and the No. six overall player in the state of Tennessee according to the 247 Sports composite rankings.

Signing McGraw would be another feather in the cap for this year’s defensive crop, which has shaped up to be a monster signing class for Jeremy Pruitt in only his second year on the job. With all the attrition in the secondary last season, there’s no such thing as too many DBs on this year’s team.

Right now Georgia is the clear favorite, with McGraw being obviously cooled on Alabama. He has offers from 29 different schools, including most of the SEC programs.
