It is always a head-scratcher when a highly-coveted football recruit decides to go anywhere other than Alabama. If you have the choice, why wouldn't you go to the most prestigious college program?
The number-two recruit in the nation, Kayvon Thibodeaux, decided to do just that on Saturday. He has turned down Alabama's offer and has fully committed to the Oregon Ducks.
