New Alabama QB Commit Mac Jones Harshly Responds To Kentucky Coach's Subtweet

Alabama picked up a second Elite 11 finalist quarterback commit of the 2017 cycle today, flipping four-star Mac Jones from Kentucky. Shortly after Jones announced the move, Kentucky OC/QB coach Darin Hinshaw posted a quote to Twitter about "living with the consequences of our choices," a clear reference to Jones' decision. Jones, who was committed to Kentucky for nearly a year, did not take long to respond in kind.

Mac Jones.

Mac Jones.

Jones deleted the tweet pretty quickly, but the sentiment remains, and he certainly isn't wrong. If this and the situation with Texas A&M assistant Aaron Moorehead earlier this off-season have taught us anything, it is that subtweeting high school recruits about giant life decisions does not pay off. It is also incredibly difficult to blame anyone for taking an offer to play for Nick Saban.
