Yeldon Flips to Bama


Heralded Daphne, Alabama running back T.J. Yeldon decommitted from Auburn on Sunday and now says he's going to Alabama. This comes as no surprise to anyone. We've been hearing rumors for weeks that he was having second thoughts. In a released statement, Yeldon said: "Over the last few weeks, I've really put a lot of time and thought into where I want to go to school and continue my football career," Yeldon said in the statement. "I am blessed to be in a situation where I have several great opportunities and I appreciate everyone involved who has helped me get to this point. "I want to make an announcement so I can put this behind me and get to work on the things I need to do to prepare for college both athletically and academically. I am going to enroll at the University of Alabama in January. "I have a lot of respect for Auburn, the coaches, and all of the people there, but at the end of the day I feel like the University of Alabama is the best situation and fit for me and my family. I am 100 percent confident with my final decision. I feel great about it and I'm excited to get started."
