High school running back T.J. Yeldon has de-committed from Auburn University and will instead enroll at the University of Alabama. The news was first reported via Twitter, and Yeldon released a statement later Sunday evening.
"I want to make an announcement so I can put this behind me and get to work on the things I need to do to prepare for college both athletically and academically," the statement reads. "I am going to enroll at the University of Alabama in January."
Yeldon, a top prospect from Daphne, Ala., is widely-considered one of the nation's best high school running backs. He committed to Auburn last June.
