Stop if you’ve heard this line before: Will Muschamp has flipped a top recruit at the last minute and convinced him to enroll at Florida.
This time, it’s cornerback Jalen Tabor (6-1, 186, Washington D.C. Friendship Collegiate) who has flipped his commitment from Arizona to Florida and will enroll in Gainesville on Monday.
“I’m going to Florida,” Tabor told Gator Country via text. “It’s official.”
Tabor announced last Thursday at the Under Armour All-American game that he was attending Arizona where his good friend Jonathan Haden was going but a last minute change happened.
Florida lost cornerback Marcus Roberson last Friday to the NFL draft. When that happened, the need for Tabor went up as well as his chance for early playing in Gainesville which is something very important to him.
Tabor has made no secret in the past that Florida was a school he liked a lot because his idol, Cleveland Browns cornerback Joe Haden is a former Gator himself.
Tabor becomes the 20th commitment in the Class of 2014 and joins Duke Dawson, Quincy Wilson, JC Jackson and Chris Lammons as cornerbacks in the class.
