Kentucky has one fewer football commitment for the class of 2015.
Georgia defensive back Montrell Custis announced Monday that he has backed out of his pledge to the Wildcats and is now committed to Alabama.
Custis is considered a four-star prospect and the No. 26 cornerback in the class of 2015 by 247Sports. He originally pledged to Kentucky last November, becoming the first commitment in the program’s 2015 class.
Alabama offered Custis in February, and he visited the Tuscaloosa campus one week later.
“I really want to give a special thanks to the whole UK coaching staff for giving me an opportunity to go to a great university like Kentucky,” Custis tweeted Monday. “But at the end of the day me and my family thought Alabama was a better fit for me. So I decommitted from UK and now I’m commit Alabama!”
Kentucky now has five commitments for the class of 2015.
