Gators suffer second decommitment in as many days as 4-star in-state recruit Dink Jackson reopens recruitment
Florida had one of the nation’s best 2021 recruiting classes just two days ago but things have changed in a short period of time in Gainesville as two of the program’s targets have backed off their pledges to Dan Mullen’s program.
The first decommitment came on Thursday as Bryce Langston, the No. 2 overall prospect from Florida and the No. 10 prospect nationally in the 2021 recruiting cycle, announced he was opening up his recruitment.
“After the long days and night of me thinking about the recruiting process, talking to my parents and coaches, I will announce that I will be decommitting from the University of Florida. Respect my decision,” Langston tweeted out with the note that his recruitment is 100 percent open.
Now Langston has been joined by four-star Melbourne native Dink Jackson. The 6-foot-2, 185-pound Eau Gallie standout is rated as the No. 19 athlete in the nation and a top 205 prospect nationally in 2021 by 247Sports. Jackson announced the news with the following message on Twitter:
“I’ve decided to decommit from the University of Florida. My recruitment is open. No interviews please.”
These decisions leave Florida with only three commitments for the 2021 class.
