Jacksonville OT steps back from pledge

1/8/2013

Donald Rocker Jr. (Jacksonville, Fla./Sandalwood) is no longer among the committed.

The 6-foot-4, 300-pound offensive tackle declared Tuesday that he had decommitted from FIU and is now "opening back up."

The change of coaching staffs following the firing of Mario Cristobal was key.

"Not enough stability," Rocker said simply.

Though he is no longer committed to FIU, it doesn't mean the Panthers are out of the race. Rocker listed FIU, Western Kentucky, Memphis and Marshall as possible destinations.
