2020 4-star RB decommits from Florida State

4 star running back Jaylan Knighton out Deerfield Beach, FL decommited from Florida State this afternoon. After learning about the firing of recent Head Coach Willie Taggart, Knighton released a statement via twitter.

The 4 star all-purpose running back is the second highest-rated recruit in the 2020 class. He committed to FSU over Ohio State, Alabama, and Oklahoma. Knighton is making a visit to Gainesville this weekend when the Gators play Vanderbilt.

With this being the second decommitment since the dismissal of Willie Taggart we can expect some more in the next few days. Unfortunately, when a head coach is fired, recruits tend to reopen their search. This is just the beginning of a long process that comes with the search for a new head coach.
