Kobe Prentice backs off Maryland commitment

Kobe Prentice announced his de-commitment from Maryland football Tuesdday.

Prentice is rated as a three-star recruit on most recruiting sites. The Calera, Alabama product has seen his recruitment change in recent weeks. Ten D1 programs extended offers to the rising prospect before he verbally committed to Maryland last month.

Alabama football was the first program to offer the speedy wide receiver this month. He told Touchdown Alabama he grew up a fan of the Crimson Tide when discussing his offer from Alabama.

“I was actually chilling with some of my friends when they offered me,” Prentice said. “When they told me, I just went outside to give God the praise. I was excited. I grew up an Alabama fan, so I like them a lot. I know that they are wide receiver U and put a lot of receivers in the league.”

Alabama’s coaches were able to see Prentice camp in June, and he put on a show.

“I think I did pretty good,” said Prentice. “I ran a 4.38 forty and was able to catch a couple of passes in one-on-ones. They told me they like my speed and my ability to create separation.”
