Lyndell Wilson's deleted tweet.

Earlier: Five-star linebacker Lyndell Wilson visited both Georgia and Alabama over the past few weeks, and had plans to make one last stop in Gainesville to visit with the Florida Gators before signing day. Thursday, he canceled those plans. Wilson, on Twitter, has informed his followers that he will not be taking his last official visit - he's instead removing Florida from consideration.

Why? Because despite Florida being Wilson's "No. 1" school, the Gators reportedly haven't reached out to his mother. That's enough - he says - for him to name Georgia and Alabama as his two finalists.

Wilson, according to 247 Sports, is the 15th-best player in the country. He has offers from nearly every major program.
