Daytona Beach (Fla.) Mainland linebacker Quinton Powell de-committed from Florida in December after taking an official visit to Gainesville.
But Florida has continued to stay in touch with the 6-foot-2, 200-pound Powell since his departure.
On Tuesday the Gators received some positive news.
“Well I’ve decided to cancel the rest of my official visits to South Carolina, Oregon and Miami,” Powell said on Facebook. “My top (schools) are Southern California and Florida.”
When GatorCountry.com contacted Powell to confirm the message he had this to say about his two finalists:
“Yes sir, that’s my top two,” Powell said. “Florida is my childhood dream school and Southern California is the city of dreams.”
Then Florida linebacker coach DJ Durkin, when has since been name defensive coordinator, visited Powell last week at his school. Powell said the Gators have still been recruiting him hard recently.
Powell said a final decision will come on national signing day of Feb. 6 when he announces his decision on ESPNU.
