Former Maryland Commit Could Be Eyeing Alabama
Just a day after committing to play for the Maryland Terrapins, 3-star wide receiver Kobe Prentice from Calera High School in Alabama received a scholarship offer from the Crimson Tide. Tuesday evening, Prentice recommitted from Maryland.
According to BamaOnLine recruiting analyst Hank South, Prentice ran a 4.38s 40-yard dash at an Alabama camp in late June. Paired with an impressive camp overall, Saban's staff extended an offer to the 33rd-ranked player in the state.
“Nick Saban said he likes my game,” Prentice told South. “I went to their camp and Nick Saban said I could ball. He said I was pretty fast and he likes how I can roll out there.”
Prentice stressed he would take his recruitment slowly before jumping in head first with the Crimson Tide. Still, the 2022 prospect admitted to South that Alabama will be high on his list due to his Alabama roots.
“I’ve been wanting to play for Alabama all my life. It’s everything,” he said. “I grew up an Alabama fan, I live in Alabama, everyone close to me is an Alabama fan.”
According to his 247Sports profile, Prentice caught 47 passes in 2020 for 711 yards and nine touchdowns. He also ran track, finishing sixth in the 100-meter AHSAA Class 6A State Track and Field Championships. Prentice holds several D-1 offers, but the most notable are Alabama, Maryland, Mississippi State, Arizona State and Kansas State.
The Alabama Crimson Tide hasn't received a commitment from a 2022 wide receiver yet in this recruiting cycle after signing four of the top 10 in the 2021 class. However, the team is targeting 5-star Evan Stewart from Texas and 4-star Shazz Preston from Louisiana.
