The Florida Gators could get an early win over Michigan ahead of their Citrus Bowl matchup on Jan. 1.
Following an in-home visit Wednesday from UF linebackers coach Randy Shannon, Farmington (Mich.) linebacker David Reese de-committed from Michigan.
Reese cited a desire to enroll early as the reason for his decision, which he announced on Twitter. He could not do so with the Wolverines.
The 6-foot-1, 235-pounder officially visited Florida on Nov. 29 for the weekend of the Florida State game. Reese previously took a trip to Nebraska and went to TCU last weekend.
Reese is schedule to visit Texas this weekend. Longhorns coach Charlie Strong had an in-home visit with Reese on Tuesday night, and Nebraska has seen him twice in the past two weeks.
The addition of Reese as a midyear recruit would be important for the Gators, who have a need at linebacker. Florida currently has two linebacker commits (Vosean Joseph and Jeremiah Moon) and leads for 5-star recruit Lyndell Wilson at this time.
