Cavin Ridley made a splash when he committed to South Carolina at the Under Armour All-America game on Saturday.
Now that the water has cleared, Ridley may be having second thoughts.
The 4-star wide receiver tweeted out Monday that he is de-committing from the Gamecocks and needs further time to reconsider his recruitment.
“The process of choosing which college to attend has been very, very stressful and challenging for me. My situation was made even more difficult because there were major coaching changes in all my finalists. I’ve decided that I need more time to make this extremely critical decision about my future” Ridley wrote.
“If I’m able to make a solid decision before the spring semester starts I will, if not I will consider giving up my early enrollee status to gather more information to aide me in my decision. I would like to truly apologize to the South Carolina coaches and fans and just pray that you guys understand what I am going through.”
Ridley chose South Carolina over Alabama just two days ago. It came as a bit of a head-scratcher as Ridley’s older brother, Calvin, is a key contributor on the Crimson Tide.
The 4-star receiver from Deerfield Beach High School (Fla.) pledged to the Gamecocks a short time after in-state 4-star receiver Bryan Edwards signed with the university.
Ridley is rated as the nation’s No. 32 wide receiver and Florida’s No. 25 prospect.
