Four star Corner back Elijah Blades shocked Gator Nation last night tweeting out that he would be reopening his recruitment, less than a week before National Signing Day. Blades had said Florida was his dream school and had been committed to Florida since last June.
The Gators have been with Blades since the beginning we he was a three star recruit, so imagine how shocked the Gators were to hear this news. There has been speculation for sometime talking about Blades going back on his commitment but it still took the majority of Gator Nation by storm.
Blades has put out his top 5 schools of USC, Florida, Nebraska, Georgia and Oregon but from the looks of it the Gators aren’t really in the hunt. Our best guess is that he ends up at USC or Nebraska.
Not to worry though Gator Nation, as you all know, we don’t rebuild here at DBU we reload. We still have Marco Wilson and Shawn Davis committed, the Gators are also in the hunt for big names like C.J Henderson, Brad Stewart and Brian Edwards.
Ultimately, this is all apart of the recruiting process. They come and they go, nothing is set in stone until they sign their papers. We wish Blades the best of luck with whomever team he decides to play for.
Florida will always be DBU though.
