Three-star defensive end Taylor Upshaw is committed to Florida, but appears to be mulling his other options with the Gators in turmoil.
Florida is currently without a head coach, after the recent firing of Jim McElwain, and as you’d imagine, it has had some recruiting ramifications.
On Wednesday, four-star wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase decommitted from the Gators.
Upshaw, son of former Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Oakland Raiders defensive end Regan Upshaw, hasn’t taken that step yet, but he is checking out other programs. According to 247Sports’ Corey Bender, he will be making a visit to Michigan.

According to his 247Sports profile, Upshaw will head to Ann Arbor on the weekend of November 25, when Michigan hosts archrival Ohio State. Upshaw has retweeted Bender about the visit.
He committed to Florida back on June 10.
Upshaw is the No. 620 overall player in the class of 2018. He is also ranked No. 24 among strong-side defensive end and No. 101 in Florida.
He also holds offers from Arizona, Clemson, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisville, Oklahoma, Oregon, Tennessee, Wisconsin, and numerous others. It is unclear if he plans to make any other official visits.
