Eric Bledsoe went from one of the best uncommitted point guards in the country to committed and back to uncommitted in a matter of two hours late Tuesday night. The Birmingham (Ala.) Hayes senior is now in a holding pattern as the early signing period approaches.
Bledsoe verbally committed to Ole Miss late Tuesday night and even later in the night, he decided that he was not ready to lock himself up with the Rebels, according to his Birmingham Ice coach Ava Herndon.
"He said, 'Coach, I'm not ready to commit. I don't know what I want to.' That's basically where we are," Herndon said. "That's probably the quickest de-commitment you've ever seen."
Bledsoe, who still has a long ways to go academically, will still consider the Rebels. Alabama, Ole Miss and UAB are the top three schools for Bledsoe, Herndon said.
"He said he is recruiting process over," Herndon said. "I know he's ready to get it over with. But like I told him, he has to make sure he's making the right decision either now or later."
