JUCO Kicker Eddy Pineiro Decommits

New, 80 comments

After seeing what Florida had to "offer" in the kicking game, you could see this one coming a mile away.

It appears that Coach McElwain, out of desperation and a bad roster, has likely scored a recruiting coup with the decommitment of JUCO placekicker Eddy Pineiro from Alabama.

The cannon-legged prospect from Miami, who has previously gushed about his official visit to the Swamp, broke the news last night.

The sky isn't falling, folks. Alabama returns a senior all-conference performer who was as good as nearly anyone in the country down the stretch. Adam Griffith is healthy, and as important, confident going into the playoffs and hopefully next season.

Being stood up at the altar this late, however, does mean that Alabama will almost certainly not be in contention to sign another kicker in the '16 class.
