Vandarius Cowan was one of many recruits visiting for the Florida-Florida State game, but he left with a sour taste in his mouth.
Cowan, a 4-star outside linebacker from Palm Beach Gardens (Fla.) High School, was a one-time Florida State commit. One thing is certain after his visit Saturday, Cowan won’t be attending the University of Florida.
Here’s what he tweeted after the Seminoles’ 27-2 win over the Gators:
The 6-foot-3, 221-pounder followed that tweet with this:
He did clarify in a later tweet that the fans that allegedly tried to fight him were Florida fans.
The visit didn’t start off so well to begin with. Cowan tweeted that Gators staff members would not allow him into the stadium because he was wearing FSU gear. He ended up changing out of his clothes.
Cowan holds a scholarship offer from Florida but told SEC Country that he was never considering the Gators. After Saturday’s game, that’s clear to see.
He is ranked as the nation’s No. 6 outside linebacker in the class of 2017.
