Travaris Robinson’s departure from Florida cost the Gators a 2016 commitment Monday.
Cocoa cornerback Chauncey Gardner decided to reopen his recruiting process.
To Everyone Wondering, Florida is still high on my list but I have opened my recruitment to everyone due to coaching changes.

The 5-foot-11, 190-pounder flipped from Miami to the Gators in June after camping at UF.
Robinson, Florida’s former secondary coach who is now at Auburn, primarily recruited Gardner and heavily factored into his summer decision.
Gardner currently holds seven offers, including Notre Dame and Ohio State.
The Gators now have two verbal commitments — athletes Tyler Byrd and Tre Jackson — in their 2016 class. Both were recruited as cornerbacks by the previous staff.
