Arizona Wildcats lose recruit Jalen Tabor to Florida

One week ago, Jalen Tabor shocked many when he announced on national TV his intentions to enroll at the University of Arizona instead of Alabama.

A five-star recruit according to some services, the cornerback was the 15th-best prospect in the country, according to ESPN.com.

Thursday, Tabor announced he was changing his mind, and instead will head to Florida.

“It’s definitely correct, Jalen will be a Florida Gator,” Marie Tabor said via text, according to Gerry Hamilton of ESPN.com . “Final decision.”

It’s a stunning and disappointing development for the Wildcats, who were likely already penciling in the 6-foot-1, 188-pound defensive back into their secondary.
