According to multiple outlets, one of the countries top rated defensive backs has switched his commitment from Georgia to Marshall.
Depending on what recruiting sight you follow, Lake Gibson High School (Fla.) safety Kendall Gant is either a three of four star recruit. Rivals list him as the 39th best prospect at his position in the class of 2014. Gant committed to Georgia over the summer, but an academic situation is leading him to the Thundering Herd.
According to Lake Gibson football coach Keith DeMyer, Gant's ACT score is two points short of the NCAA's minimum eligibility requirement. Unlike Marshall, Georgia can't enroll academic non-qualifiers.
During his senior season Gant recorded 48 tackles and five interceptions. A highly sought after recruit, he had scholarship offers from countless programs including Alabama, USC, and Ohio State.
