4* DB Divaad Wilson de-commits from Gators 2018 class

Florida’s 2018 class lost its fourth commitment since the departure of coach Jim McElwain.

Divaad Wilson, a 5-foot-11 cornerback out of Miami, backed off his Florida pledge a night after meeting with new Gators coach Dan Mullen.

Wilson initially stated he would de-commit from UF if the program did not retain interim coach Randy Shannon.

The Gators have 15 verbal commitments in the 2018 class following Wilson’s de-commitment.

  • So he would rather play for Randy Shannon than Todd Grantham who, in one year, turned MSU around from the 110th ranked defense nationally to 10th. To each his own.

  • You clowns crack me up. You call a kid making the biggest decision of his young life "entitled" because he chooses to go to another school.

    Project much? You are the ones with entitlement issues. Please explain how UF is entitled to any player? Explain how you as a fan are entitled to dictate a kid's life.

    Get a friggin' life, you hypocritical termini of the alimentary canal.

    • Most of these commenters are more childish than the kids being recruited. Coaches came and persuaded him to come to Florida. Became friends with him, show him their credentials and built a bond with him, next day the people he was sold on is fired. That's a kick in the face no one talks about. He opened up his options with other coaches that were recruiting him that he grown to know. It probably going to be transfer requests also. Part of coaching changes.

  • 7-18 year old kids will learn that whether it's football or a business/professional career, names change like musical chairs. It's UF and being a Gator that matters. Maybe he doesn't like the competition as there are some talented CB's currently on the roster.

  • In all reality, Dan Mullen is probably going to run an offense-oriented team, so I guess there's some merit to his decision. Likewise, I don't know that the Gators will be any worse off for it.

  • HALL ASK BOY! WE DON'T HAVE TO RESPECT YOUR DECISION. BYE BYE. JUST ANNOUNCE YOUR DECISION AND LEAVE. THAT WASN'T NEEDED TO BE SAID. ONE MAN DOESN'T MAKE A TEAM.

    P. S.
    YOU RESPECT THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA.

  • Grow the F$@# up people - This is up to Divaad and his family. God Bless him and I wish him the best wherever he ends up.

  • I wish him the best and hope this was indeed the best decision for him. He's totally within his rights to change his mind, and I personally don't want anyone on the team that's not 100% Gator. Go have a great career, preferably not against us.
