The move was an expected one with Moton's recent decision to visit Mississippi State, possibly Texas A&M and TCU, but not Tuscaloosa. Still, it was an important step in the process of State potentially landing the talented former MSU commit.
I've already seen a expanse of different reasons for the decision -- some calling it grades concerns, others saying Bama didn't have room for him. No matter what you read about Moton and his decision to decommit, know this: he is a talented prospect, and State or anyone else will be lucky to land him as a part of their class.
The next step in his recruitment will be to watch whether or not he visits A&M and TCU in the coming weekends, and how those visits go. Moton seems to really like MSU -- Dan and John Hevesy were by to see him today -- which seems to give us a leg up at this point. But that could certainly change in the final two weeks, so hold on to your hats.
