Four-star DT Jeffrey M'Ba decommits from Virginia and reclassifies to 2020

By

Talk about taking out two birds with one stone.

Not only did Jeffrey M’Ba, perhaps the latest commitment to a Power 5 program in in the Class of 2019, decommit from Virginia on Friday, he also decided to reclassify to the Class of 2020.

M’Ba announced his decision on Twitter, with the 6-foot-5, 315 pound prospect officially walking away from the Virginia program, though not closing any door on a potential reunion in 2020.

While he was not explicit, M’Ba’s social media post indicated that he had failed to qualify for the Class of 2019, thus necessitating a move to 2020. In recent weeks he’s increasingly been seen as a potential flip risk to programs like West Virginia or North Carolina.

A four-star prospect from St. Thomas More (Oakdale, Conn.), M’Ba is a native of France who only recently arrived in the U.S. to play at a higher competitive level in hopes of a collegiate chance.

That paid off quickly, though the adjustment has led to an additional high school year, which set the stage for M’Ba to reconsider his recruitment.
