Recruit Brent Calloway Still Undecided Between Alabama and Auburn

Brent Calloway is a highly-rated recruit from Birmingham, Alabama. He had been committed to play football at Alabama for a year and a half, but he surprised folks by announcing a change of plans at the U.S. Army All American Game earlier in the month. His father, “Peaches” Winston, was not happy about the announcement, as we found out this weekend via College Football Talk.

“I’m from the old school,” Winston said. “When you shake a man’s hand, look him in the eye and make a commitment, you stick to that commitment. I respect him and I’m going to root for him. But I don’t think he handled it the right way.”

A big reason for the disconnect is a debate over what position Calloway should play; he wants to play running back which Auburn is offering, while his father and Bama both think he’s better suited to play defense.

Apparently Winston is not going down without a fight, because Calloway was in Tuscaloosa for a visit with Bama this weekend.

Only Calloway knows what he’ll announce on signing day Wednesday, and then we’ll find out how upset his folks are. Maybe the reason he’s reconsidering Auburn is because the money’s too good. If that’s the case, it’s certainly not being kick backed to his father’s church.

    or maybe bama is buying him and his parents cars and offering him money for his signature. current bama team on probation and only football team to be on probation in this state the last 16 years. in fact 3 times and actually paid somebody 200,000 and couldnt even win a championship. lol thats just sad but they got the best team money can buy. its coming for bama. mark my words! keep that parking lot full and you will see that when it comes out how right i am. should hear something in the next year.

    YOU are a pathetic excuse of a journalist. Thank goodness more journalist arent like you. Where do you get your facts and what are you basing this article on ? This young man is 17-18 years old and has a right to change his mind. I admire his dad for wanting him to be a man of his word, but he also a kid and was probably given bad advice or got caught up in the whole recruiting nightmare that is a problem so for so many recruits. This young man needs to go where HE wants to go and he needs to follow his heart. This is HIS life and HIS future, not anyone elses. THey sure dont need your advice or anyone elses for that matter. YOu need to worry about trying to find out how to be a good , responsible, respectable journalist and not some tabloid rumor reporter that you have shown you are. Ypou’re a disgrace to the fine people that do this job so well.

    You have viable information that Auburn is paying Calloway? You need to file this information at the University of Alabama in the section”How to get Auburn on probation like we are?”
