A top 2016 Florida Gator recruit backed out just a day after verbally committing to the team. Jayvaughn Myers, a Dade City Pasco cornerback, explained he had made the decision to decommit. Myers made his surprising announcement on Twitter, stating that he "just wanted to give an open door policy to every school to recruit me. Florida is still in consideration." Without Myers, Gators will still gain four other cornerbacks: Chauncey Gardner, Antonio Nelson, Aaron Robinson and Christopher McWilliams. The program's only concern is that the loss of Myers could mean that they will also lose wide receiver Nate Craig-Myers, Myers' half brother.
