Crescent City, FL defensive tackle Caleb Brantley decommitted from the Florida recruiting class Wednesday, according to the Gainesville Sun. He plans to take visits to Florida State, Southern California, Alabama and Auburn. He hasn't removed Florida from consideration and may still ultimately sign with the Gators.
The Sun suggests that Brantley's experience at the Under Armour bowl practices may have swayed his decision. Brantley has been around a number of uncommitted star players since Sunday, and their accounts of the recruiting trail may have whetted his appetite to take recruiting visits.
Brantley is a Top 150 prospect according to ESPN, and he's a 4-star prospect according to Rivals.com. The Gators had Rivals.com's third-best 2013 recruiting class before Brantley reneged on his pledge. National Signing Day is on Feb. 6, at which point players will sign binding letters of intent. Florida's 2013 class contains another 4-star defensive tackle: Darious Cummings of Scooba, TN.
