Florida’s 2018 class continues to see wide receivers drop out like flies.
Tyquan Thornton, a 6-foot-3, 170-pound pass catcher out of Booker T. Washington High, announced Saturday night his decision to flip his verbal commitment from the Gators to Baylor University.

Thornton, ranked the No. 50 wide receiver by 247Sports, committed to former UF coach Jim McElwain in July following Friday Night Lights, and the transition to coach Dan Mullen apparently changed things for the four-star prospect.
With Thornton’s departure, the Gators have 11 commitments in the 2018 class, including a lone wide receiver in Corey Gammage out of Delray Beach Atlantic High.
