By Derek Tyson
GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Just one day removed from landing three verbal commitments, the Florida Gators lost a linebacker commit on Monday night. ESPN 150 linebacker Quinton Powell (Daytona Beach, Fla./Mainland) has reopened his recruitment after officially visiting Florida this past weekend.
The 6-foot-2, 205-pound linebacker is still considering USC, Miami (Fla) and Oregon. He is planning to take official visits to all three schools.
Powell announced his decision via his Facebook status update: "Yes I Decommited from Florida, nothing against the program just needed to re-evaluate my choices."
The Gators landed ESPN 150 linebacker Matt Rolin (Ashburn, Va./Briar Woods) on Sunday afternoon giving Florida four linebacker commitments, With Powell's decommitment Florida still has commits from James Hearns (Tallahassee, Fla./Lincoln), Daniel McMillian (Jacksonville, Fla./First Coast) and Rolin.
The Gators continue to hold on to the No. 1-ranked recruiting class in the country.
