Report: Georgia loses top RB commit; Tennessee and Alabama in the mix?

BY foxsports • June 11, 2015

The Georgia Bulldogs have suffered a blow to their 2016 recruiting efforts as four-star running back B.J. Emmons decommitted from the team on Thursday, according to 247 Sports

Emmons is currently ranked as the number four running back in the nation for 2016 and among the top five players in the state of North Carolina. The Bulldogs do not have a running back committed following Emmons' decommitment. 

Emmons is now thought to be considering Tennessee or Alabama, as both teams have been recruiting the Morganton, North Carolina native and have holes to fill at the running back position. Emmons visited Tennessee last weekend, which may have led to this decommitment from the Dawgs. 

Ironically enough, all three schools are also heavily involved in the recruitment of four-star running back Elijah Holyfield, son of former Heavyweight World Champion Evander. Will Emmons decommit signal Holyfield's eventual signing with his home state Bulldogs?
