Decommitment rankings: 2015
Which decommitments have had the most impact on the 2015 recruiting cycle?
There are certain facts that you have to accept if you're a fan of college football. Ohio State and Michigan fans just aren't going to get along. The Lone Star State still isn't big enough for both Texas and Texas A&M fans. And 17- and 18-year-old high school football recruits are going to change their minds -- a lot. Here's a look at the 10 biggest decommitments for the class of 2015, including ESPN 300 safety Ben Edwards who has now backed away from commitments to not one, but two major college programs.
1. George Campbell
ESPN 300 Rank: 10
Previously committed to: Michigan
Looking at: Campbell narrowed his list down to Georgia, Ole Miss, Maryland, UCLA, Alabama, Clemson, Florida, Auburn, LSU and Florida State. Noticeably absent was Michigan.
The impact: Yes, it's been more than a year since Campbell originally committed to the Wolverines and then later backed away from the pledge, but it still is the most significant decommitment of the 2015 recruiting cycle. When Campbell picked Michigan, it looked like the Wolverines had pulled off a major recruiting coup, and it helped give them some big momentum on the recruiting trail, especially in the Southeast. Wolverines fans were talking about a potential top-10 recruiting class and even had visions of the top class in the Big Ten. Without Campbell, the Wolverines are 20th and still looking for their impact pass-catcher.
