Florida’s 2019 football recruiting class has taken yet another hit.
The latest signee no longer with the class is four-star wide receiver Arjei Henderson, who did not meet UF’s academic standards and has been released from his National Letter of Intent, the school confirmed Friday.
He is the fifth prospect who is no longer part of the 2019 class, joining cornerback Chris Steele, quarterback Jalon Jones, linebacker Diwun Black and offensive lineman Deyavie Hammond. A sixth player is still trying to remain in the class and enroll at UF — offensive lineman Wardrick Wilson, who is from the Bahamas and is still going through the process of trying to obtain a visa.
Steele (Southern Cal) and Jones (Jackson State) transferred to other schools, while Black and Hammond failed to qualify academically and have enrolled in junior colleges. Black is at Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College.
