First, Ann Arbor Skyline linebacker Daelin Hayes, ranked the No. 1 football recruit in the state, decommitted from USC.
Now Farmington Hills Harrison defensive end Khalid Kareem, considered a four-star recruit and ranked No. 9 in the state by rivals.com, has gone back on his pledge to Alabama.
Kareem tweeted the news this morning, writing: “After careful consideration and a lot of heart felt talks with my mother. In my families best interest we’ve informed the Coaches that I am decommitted from the University of Alabama at this time. Thank you to Coach Saban and Coach Williams and Coach Tosh for everything you’ve taught me a long the way. Thank you to the entire Crimson Tide family and community.”
Kareem had scholarship offers to Michigan and Michigan State before choosing Alabama in June. In fact, he once reportedly was close to verbally committing to MSU. Verbal commitments are nonbinding until national letters of intent are signed in February.
Here is Kareem committing to Alabama at his high school:
