Gainesville High star Keith Wells didn't want to string Florida State coaches along any longer.
The four-star defensive end, who committed to the Seminoles in an early-August press conference at his school, had in recent months begun to question his allegiance to FSU. And, after taking official visits to Ohio State and Auburn in December, the 6-foot-5 pass rusher decided it was time to officially reopen his recruitment Sunday night.
"I just didn't think it was fair to the coaches (at FSU) that I was committed but I kept taking visits," Wells told GAVSV.com when reached Monday. "I am just weighing my options right now and if I still feel comfortable with FSU in the end I will be there."
While Ohio State and Auburn both made positive impressions on Wells, two - possibly three - more schools will have the opportunity to do the same before signing day.
And now that he is decommitted from FSU, Wells sees no problem in using all five of his official visits. But where will he go?
"Tennessee and Florida," Wells replied, "and maybe Miami."
After losing Wells as a commitment, it may seem that the door has officially closed on the Gainesville native's future in Tallahassee, Fla.
But as it turns out, that isn't the case.
When asked if FSU still has a shot at his football services come signing day, Wells replied, "Oh yeah. They are still my No. 1."
Despite Change, FSU Still in it for Wells?
