Did Will Muschamp withdraw the scholarship offer to one of the Florida’s recruits? Did the prospect de-commit on his own? Or did Vanderbilt simply recover and beat out the Gators in a head-to-head battle?
Details are still emerging on DB Tre Bell of New Jersey, who had been committed to Florida since April.
Over the weekend, Bell announced on Twitter that he was now pledged to Vanderbilt.
What happened? The Gainesville Sun’s Zach Abolverdi offered this insight:
A source close to the situation told The Sun that UF’s coaches wanted to see Bell in action this summer so they could critique his play, something several of Florida’s commits were required to do. But Bell never attended any of Florida’s camps in June and didn’t work out when he came down for Friday Nights Lights on July 27. The source said Bell refused to participate because his coach, Rich Hansen, advised him against it.
