On Tuesday, November 30, four-star running back Terrance Gibbs announced on Instagram that he has officially decommitted from continuing his football career and education at the University of Florida. Gibbs, who will graduate from Winter Park High school in 2022, received many offers from highly ranked college football programs around the country until he officially committed to the Florida Gators at their annual Friday Night Lights camp in July.
Gibbs’ decision comes in the wake of the unexpected late-season decline of the University of Florida football program and the firing of coach Dan Mullen after a string of losses. It was expected that many of the team’s recruits would re-consider their previous commitments which is common when coaches and teams part ways.
Gibbs, who weighs in at 190 pounds and stands six feet tall, still holds offers from nearly 30 programs including LSU, Florida State, Auburn, and Georgia. See below for a full statement from Gibbs:
“I would like to take the time to thank the University of Florida for the love and support they have shown me,” Gibbs wrote. “With that being said, after a lot of thinking and talking to my family, I decided that it is in my best interest to decommit from The University of Florida. I will take this time to evaluate what the best options for my future will be. My family and I wish nothing but the best for the players and the coaches.”
