UF decommit likes another SEC program
By Brent Sobleski
ESPN Watch List defensive tackle Travonte Valentine (Palm Bay, Fla./Bayside) already decommitted twice -- once from Louisville and from Florida. Valentine now plans to wait until national signing day to make his decision. Although, a recent offer really piqued his interest in another SEC program.
"I got off the phone with Les Miles and Brick Haley and they told me I had an offer," Valentine told James Smith of NOLA.com. "LSU is a big deal. It is a big-time school and to receive an offer from them is special.
"They were telling me about the tradition and how they put so many players into the NFL. It is a special place."
After decommitting from Florida, LSU is Valentine's most prominent offer. The Tigers are likely to remain at the top of his list of schools as he continues to waffle on other programs.
