After picking up two commitments over the weekend from offensive linemen, Florida’s 2020 class took a hit late Monday with the departure of Baton Rouge (La.) Madison Prep Academy athlete/cornerback Joel Williams.
Ranked the No. 17 athlete in the 247Sports composite ranking, Williams committed to the Gators on May 19, yet his recruiting profile has arguably only risen in the weeks since pledging to Florida.
Williams picked up an offer from Alabama on June 2, and in-state LSU has amped up its pursuit of the 6-foot-1, 180-pounder as of late.
With the departure of Williams, the Gators hold commitments from 13 prospects in the 2020 class.
