In recruiting, there’s the initial commitment and flip. The rarest? A double flip.
AJC Super 11 WR Demarcus Robinson of Peach County High School completed the double flip on Monday when he switched his commitment for a second time, this time going from Florida to Clemson after returning from an official visit with the Gators over the weekend, according to his coach.
Robinson, who is considered one of the state’s top prospects at his position, originally committed to Clemson but switched to Florida last week after an in-home visit last week with the Gators coaches, including Will Muschamp.
Despite losing Robinson, Clemson never gave up, dispatching several assistants to meet with the 4-star wide receiver last week.
Florida will have a tough time convincing Robinson to switch for a third time since Sunday night was the end of the NCAA’s contact period between college coaches and prospects. Robinson is also an early enrollee, and will begin taking college classes at the first of January.
With kids committing earlier and earlier, “double flippers” are becoming more common in football recruiting. One of UGA commits, RB-WR Tramel Terry, pledged twice to the Bulldogs and nearly made a third commitment recently, but decided to stick with UGA over Clemson. (Maybe that counts as three decisions, not sure)
Another AJC Super 11 selection, QB Eddie Printz of Lassiter High School, is also officially a rare “double flipper” – committing to SMU, switching because of a coaching change to UCLA, then claiming his scholarship offer was withdrawn by the Bruins and finally pledging to Missouri.
