Four-star CB backs out of Florida State commitment

Until Tuesday, Florida State was the only one of the "big three" football programs in the state of Florida that had not seen one player decommit from its class of 2020.

That is no longer the case.

Three days after the Seminoles were blown out by Clemson, highly touted defensive back commitment Jalen Harrell announced he is no longer planning to sign with the 'Noles.

Harrell, who is a four-star prospect and one of the top 10 cornerbacks in the country, confirmed his decision on Twitter.

The Seminoles still have three other defensive backs in this class, including four-stars Demorie Tate and Isaiah Dunson.

Losing Harrell drops the Seminoles out of the top 10 national team recruiting rankings; they now check in at No. 11 after being No. 8 on Monday.
