Nick Saban Promises To ‘Stand By His Word’ (This Time)

Running back Justin Taylor from North Atlanta High School is still trying to decide where he will spend the fall of 2012.

The Alabama commit received a visit on Tuesday from coach Nick Saban, who recently told Taylor he no longer had a scholarship available for 2012. Instead, Saban has asked Taylor to wait to enroll in school next January.

Taylor is undecided, although he remains committed to Alabama. His options include attending a junior college this fall as a part-time student or enrolling in a prep school to play football this fall. But Taylor has qualified academically so attending a prep school isn’t necessary.

There’s a good chance Taylor accepts Saban’s offer to wait to join Alabama in 2013. If that happens, Saban better have a scholarship ready, according to Stanley Pritchett, Taylor’s coach and legal guardian.

“Coach Saban made it clear he is going to stand by his word,” Pritchett told the AJC. “As Justin’s guardian, I can only go by a man’s word. I’m going to hold Coach Saban to those words. There’s going to be a problem if he doesn’t stick by his word (and sign Taylor in 2013).”

I’ve made my thoughts clear on this situation. Hopefully things work out well for Taylor no matter what decision he makes for his future.
