According to Rivals.com, Darlington, S.C, cornerback Victor Hampton has officially backed out of his commitment to Florida. In an interview with Rivals, Hampton said he had tried to call members of Florida’s staff to see if the rumors about his scholarship being pulled were true, but he was unable to get a hold of anyone. While he wanted to remain a Gator, Hampton said it’s best for him to move on.
“I haven’t heard from them, it hurts me, but I’m not going to let it slow me down,” Hampton told Rivals. “If they want to drop me, there’s other schools very interested in me.”
Hampton has yet to be cleared to play at his new school after transferring from Charlotte, N.C., Independence this fall, but said he expects a decision to be made later this week.
Hampton visited Tennessee for the second time this past weekend and is now strongly considering the Vols.
