Florida suffers 3rd decommitment in 2 days as in-state DL makes announcement
Francois Nolton Jr. announced that he has decommitted to Florida in an announcement on Instagram.
The 6-foot-4 and 225 pound defensive lineman out of Miami (Edison) is rated the No. 89 defensive lineman and No. 88 player from the Sunshine State in this class, according to the 247Sports Composite. His announcement followed Texas QB Nick Evers and Winter Garden, Florida and West Orange 4-star wide receiver Jayden Gibson. Nolton is rated a 3-star recruit.
“I want to thank the Florida coaches especially Coach [Dan] Mullen and Coach Hova [John Herron] for giving me an opportunity to play at the next level. That being said after a long talk with my family I would like to decommit from the University of Florida and open my recruitment 100 percent,” Nolton wrote.
Nolton previously was the longest-tenured commit in Florida’s 2022 recruiting class, as he committed to the program in early February. The Gators’ class now sits at 7 commitments.
