No. 1 Athlete in Georgia Decommits From Gators, Likely to Flip to Crimson Tide
The No. 1 rated athlete in the 2022 recruiting class, according to the 247Sports Composite, Isaiah Bond announced via social media that he would be decommitting from the University of Florida.
Bond, makes the announcement after Florida lost its fourth conference game in a row and the Gators fired head coach Dan Mullen. Additionally, and perhaps more telling, Bond announced this change on the Monday after taking an unofficial visit to the Capstone to see Alabama defeat the Arkansas Razorbacks.
The 5-foot-10, 175 pound athlete out of Buford, GA, is rated a 4-star prospect and the No. 8 ranked player in the state and the No. 86 rated player in the 2022 class.
The Buford Wolves are still alive this season as they have made the Georgia Class 6A quarterfinal round. He is teammates with current Alabama-commit Jake Pope.
Alabama only has two receivers committed in the 2022 class, Aaron Anderson and Kobe Prentice. Bond can step onto The Capstone and make an immediate impact next season after Alabama will likely lose John Metchie and Jameson Williams to the NFL Draft.
The Tide already has the No. 2 2022 recruiting class in the nation according to the 247Sports Rankings and adding Bond would only add to the stellar class.
Alabama has assigned Charles Kelley to Bond as his primary recruiter and he visited Alabama on an official visit in the summer. He took his other official visits to Florida, Texas and Miami. Four out of five prognosticators for 247Sports have predicted that Bond will ultimately end up in the Tide's 2022 class.
