Florida appears to have just one last shaky commitment.
Tuesday night, I was informed by someone close to Brooksville Nature Coast wide receiver Ja’Juan Story that he will make a final decision Wednesday at 9 a.m. He will choose between Florida and Ohio State. Though Story has remained committed to the Gators, he began wavering after Urban Meyer’s resignation.
Story has officially visited Ohio State, taken and posted pictures with both OSU coach Jim Tressel and UF’s Will Muschamp and has gone back and forth with his decision this month. The source said he is “not sure what (Story) will do,” Wednesday.
Story had an in-home visit with both Muschamp and Tressel last week and unofficially visited Florida last Friday. He also reportedly wasn’t thrilled with former Florida running backs coach Stan Drayton’s hire to be OSU’s receivers coach, but the same source said that was blown out of proportion.
Right now, it looks like a prominent member of Story’s family is pushing him to stay committed to Florida.
“His uncle wants to stay close and he is trying to push him that way,” the source said.
Losing Story would leave Florida with just one receiver commit in this class in Lakeland’s Javares McCroy, who is current enrolled at Florida.
