Editor's note: Every Monday in Four Downs, we'll tally up the recent winners and losers from the football recruiting world to tip off your week in proper form. We'll set the table with the stories that need to be told and give you a leg up on the water cooler conversations around the office.
Florida comes out as the biggest loser of last week after one of its top commitments backed away from his pledge and is likely heading to a conference rival. Florida State, and especially assistant Tim Brewster, are looking good after dipping into ultra-competitive Mississippi to lure a four-star receiver to Tallahassee. And teams in the Pac-12 and Mountain West in need of quarterback help are not looking so good right now.
This week in Four Downs, a Florida State assistant wins big by securing a commitment from a target of his previous school; their rival in Gainesville suffers a blow to its recruiting class; and a Notre Dame pledge heats up a family rivalry.
