Florida received good news Thursday morning when the No. 15-ranked player in the country, cornerback Jalen Tabor (Washington, D.C./Friendship Academy) flipped his commitment from Arizona to Florida. The news wasn't as good on Thursday evening, however, as ESPN 300 cornerback Chris Lammons (Fort Lauderdale, Fla./Plantation) backed off his pledge to Florida.

Lammons announced his decision in a simple text that read: “I decommitted from Florida.”



Wisconsin and South Carolina appear to be in the driver’s seat for the four-star defensive back. Lammons has already visited Wisconsin on Nov. 9 and has a visit planned to South Carolina on Jan. 24.

Florida has 20 verbal commitments including 11 ranked in the ESPN 300.

Even with the loss of Lammons, Florida still has four ESPN 300 defensive backs committed. Tabor joins Quincy Wilson (Fort Lauderdale, Fla./University School), J.C. Jackson (Immokalee, Fla./Immokalee) and Duke Dawson (Cross City, Fla./Dixie Co.) as other Florida defensive back commits.

The Gators are still targeting five-star cornerback Adoree’ Jackson (Gardena, Calif./Junipero Serra).
