Florida Prospects Surprised by Meyer News

It's been an intense day for some of Florida's committed 2011 players and uncommitted prospects. Most of these guys were in school when the news dropped that Florida head coach Urban Meyer would be stepping down but the general feeling toward the idea is shock. Here's what some had to say.

2011 4-star DE Ray Drew: "I'm shocked. I don't even know what to think. Florida was really up there for me so now I guess we will just have to see what happens."

2011 5-star LB Curtis Grant: "It's all good. I still like UF."

2011 4-star DE/OLB Curt Maggitt: "Yeah this is crazy. I really like coach Meyer a lot so I don't know what to think now. I'm just going to let it play out though."

2011 4-star CB Malcolm Mitchell: "Yeah that kind of came out of nowhere. Florida was actually really high on my list so now I have to see who comes in his place."

2011 4-star WR JaJuan Story: "That is more than crazy. I am definitely going to have to sit down and think about my commitment and take some other visits and stuff. Just crazy."

2011 4-star TE AC Leonard: "I don't even know what to think. It's wild. I've got to get in touch with some coaches."
