When players decommit from early picks they’ve made, they always say the same thing: It’s about going through the process correctly. Florida State might still be in the lead for wide receiver Keith Gavin, but they’re facing strong competition from Alabama, Georgia and also Florida.
The number 9 receiver in this draft class (80th on the ESPN 300 list) who is coming out of Wakulla county high school in Crawfordville, Florida announced his decommitment from the Seminoles last week, although he has stated they are still the favorites to land him, but he just wants to go through the process and focus on becoming a better student athlete.
With his high school being just 40 minutes from the FSU campus, it seems logical that there is no better choice for him. But Alabama and Georgia are getting official visits this fall, and Florida, who seemed to be out of the picture initially have crawled back to a spot where they might be a threat.
The Seminoles have the number three recruiting class so far but they’ve taken some hits, including Gavin decommitting and also losing five-star tight end Isaac Nauta a few weeks ago.
