Five-star DT eliminates UF, has new leader
By Derek Tyson
Just a few weeks after naming Florida his leader, five-star defensive tackle Lamont Gaillard (Fayetville, N.C./Pine Forest) decided to eliminate Florida.
ESPN 150 DT Lamont Gaillard vaulted the Gators to the top of his list after this trip to Gainesville, but a few weeks later he says he has eliminated Florida.
The 6-foot-4, 300-pound athlete confirmed his decision via text message. He said Florida decided not to offer a scholarship to his teammate, defensive end Harold Landry, which played a role in his decision.
"Yes sir, Florida is out," he wrote. "They're mad because me and my teammate got offered by Miami."
