Jalen Tabor de-commits from Arizona, commits to Florida Gators

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Jalen Tabor lives up to his twitter handle.

Five-star prospect Jalen Tabor's Twitter handle is @HesSuchATEEZ, and Arizona fans are finding out today that is a quite accurate description of him.

After choosing Arizona over Alabama during the Under Armour All-America game, Tabor announced today that he has committed to the Florida Gators. It didn't help that cornerback Marcus Roberson decided in the last week to leave Florida for the NFL, joining fellow defensive back Loucheiz Purifoy as early-entries.

So blame Jalen Tabor's mom for the biggest recruit in Arizona history flipping to Florida. Tabor apparently idolizes Cleveland Browns cornerback and former Florida star Joe Haden, but instead of following Joe's little brother, Jonathan Haden, a three-star commit, to Arizona, he'll be following big brothers path.

The switch moves Florida up to No. 8 on Rivals' overall recruiting rankings, while dropping Arizona to No. 21 (now behind ASU and Oregon).
