One of the country’s top dual-threat quarterback recruits announced his decommitment from a major program on Tuesday afternoon.
Robby Ashford, a four-star quarterback out of Hoover, Ala., initially committed to Ole Miss earlier this summer. However, after the team fired head coach Matt Luke and hired Lane Kiffin, Ashford decided to take his talents elsewhere.
The four-star prospect was clearly affected by the coaching chance and decided the Rebels aren’t the team for him – at least for now.
“After taking some time to think things over, to pray, and to speak with my parents I have decided to decommit from Ole Miss. Thanks to the coaches that have helped me through this recruiting process. I wish you all the best. As of now I am opening up my recruitment. Thank you,” he said on Twitter.

The 6-foot-2 quarterback chose Ole Miss over Auburn, Georgia, Florida, Penn State and Oregon, among other programs.
Ashford initially committed to Ole Miss to play football and baseball for the Rebels. He is the No. 10 dual-threat quarterback in the 2020 class and the No. 11 player from the state of Alabama.
Stay tuned for the latest on his recruiting.
