It's not like FSU told him there was no room, Pruitt leaving was directly responsible for him decommitting.
Pruitt told him to stay though, that FSU was the place to go. It was the new coaches that really borked up on it by talking about a greyshirt or something.

FSU did mention Grey Shirt and they also mentioned moving him OL. Neither of those appealed to him. His HS team mate was also a commit to FSU. Either way, it worked out for us and the young man will have a great college experience at a place that did not try to trick him.

Can he make an official visit to us after he is signed or will it have to be on his dime?

good question. I would think he would officially be responsible. I would also think he wouldn't really pay anything. just saying.

Seriously! I love the part about a 5* from Michigan being worth a 1* from Jacksonville.

Also, hopefully this relationship pays dividends in the future. I'm really glad we've got good coaches recruiting for us.

The best thing about all this is he will come to school with a chip on his shoulder with something to prove. He wants to show FSU that they made a big mistake. And I think he will.

Found this in an online article by Justin Barney at Jacksonville.com.

>Sandalwood had two of the day’s big four reversals, with defensive end Blake McClain signing with South Carolina and receiver Desean Blair picking Missouri. It ended a wild final month for both players. McClain had been a long-time commit to Florida State before being asked to take a grayshirt and not enroll until next year. He declined and committed to Nebraska after a visit there last weekend.

Coach Adam Geis said a visit from South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier swayed McClain. “Spurrier, he’s a legend, that kind of takes an even playing field away from being even,” Geis said. “He came in, Blake loved him, his mom and dad loved Steve. He really sealed the deal.”>
