Florida loses a wide receiver recruit, as Rodney Adams decommits.

Wide receiver prospect Rodney Adams has decommitted from the Florida Gators, according to ESPN. Adams, who plays his high school ball at St. Pete (Fla.) Lakewood High School, caught 25 passes for 819 yards and 10 touchdowns as a junior. He re-opened his recruitment earlier this month, telling the Tampa Bay Times that he planned to take all five of his official visits. Adams initially committed to Florida in February over offers from Alabama, Oklahoma, West Virginia, and others.

Adams, a four-star recruit according to Rivals.com, missed the first week of his team's practice due to an apparent heart condition. As of Monday, he was awaiting medical clearance to return to the practice field, according to the Times.

Adams's decision to move on leaves Florida with 19 football commits for the 2013 class. Other wide receiver prospects include Ahmad Fullwood, a four-star recruit from Jacksonville, Florida, and Marqui Hawkins, a three-star recruit from Columbus, Georgia.
