Three-star offensive offensive tackle Benjamin Knox announced on Tuesday that he is decommitted from the University of Florida.
Rivals has Knox at a three-star while ESPN has him at a four-star and ranked the No. 269 player in the country. Knox committed to Florida during Junior Day back on Feb. 16 2013.
“At this very moment I am decommitting,” he told InsidetheGators.com’s Blake Alderman in a text message. “Reason why [is] because I haven’t heard from them in a month.”
This marks the fifth prospect who has chosen to decommit from the program. The Gators also lost a four-star linebacker Christian Miller (Columbia, SC), who is the 58th ranked player in the nation, on May 17.
