Ocala (Fla.) Vanguard four-star defensive end Bryce Langston, one of the top prospects in the 2021 class, has reopened his recruitment as of this afternoon. Langston had previously been committed to Florida.
Langston committed to Florida in early December, but has since also visited Florida State and picked up an offer from Auburn. He holds 10 offers in total.
“After the long days and nights of me thinking about the recruiting process, talking to my parents and coaches I will announce that will be de-committing from the University of Florida,” Langston wrote on Twitter.

Langston is the No. 2 rising junior in the state of Florida and the No. 10 player in the country, according to 247Sports’ proprietary rankings. He is the third-best defensive end in the 2021 cycle per the same ratings.
Composite rankings are not out for the class of 2021 as of now.
Langston’s decision was part of a bad day for Florida football, as UF four-star freshman Chris Steele entered the transfer portal. Steele was a top-50 recruit and the highest-rated member of the Gators’ 2019 signing class.
Fortunately, there’s plenty of time before the class of 2021 can begin signing, so perhaps Florida can reel Langston back in.
