Crimson Tide Recruit Narrows Down Schools to Three
Five-star class of 2023 cornerback Desmond Ricks is down to his final three schools.
The defensive star will be choosing between Florida, LSU, and Alabama.
The Fla., native ranks No. 15 nationally, No. 2 in cornerbacks, and No. 4 in the state of Fla., for the class of 2023, according to 247Sports Composite.
Ricks was originally a part of the class of 2024 but reclassified to the class of 2023 in October.
"Can run –and more importantly– find the football, which is an important skill to have in an era where most offensive coordinators want to stretch the field. Rather battle-tested for a youngster having seen plenty of targets come his way both on Friday nights and the 7-on-7/camp circuit. Usually holds his own in coverage, and has a higher success rate in 50-50 situations, but has still given up some long gains and can get caught wandering. Should be able to cut down on mistakes as he refines his technique and learns how to consistently get wide receivers off schedule. Spent a good chunk of 12th grader year working on the inside in one of the nation’s most talented prep secondaries," said 247Sports southeast recruiting analyst Andrew Ivins.
According to On3Sports Recruiting Prediction Machine, LSU is the favorite to land the prospect with a 33% chance, while Alabama is closely behind with a 26.5% chance.
