Four-star cornerback Noah Boykin is back on the market with less than two weeks before National Signing Day.

Noah Boykin is a star for Woodson High School in Washington, D.C. He is the city's No. 2 ranked player, per 247Sports.

The site ranks him No. 366 overall. He's the nation's No. 34 cornerback.

Boykin committed to Maryland back on July 5. In December, he made his official visit to check out the Terps.

Now, with two weeks before National Signing Day, he's having second thoughts. Last night on Twitter, Boykin announced his decommitment from the Terps.

According to 247Sports, Florida has come on strong with new head coach Dan Mullen at the helm. The decommitment comes soon after a visit to Gainesville.

"This opened the door for the Gators to make a late run, and UF head coach Dan Mullen and several other coaches on staff wasted little time coming in for an in-home visit. Boykin visited Gainesville this past weekend and from all accounts the visit went very well. The Gators pitched the chance to play in the SEC and follow in the footsteps of D.C. natives like Teez Tabor and Joe Haden. The Gators also sent coaches to visit Boykin on Wednesday night as well."

In the decommitment announcement, he listed a new top four. Maryland is still involved, along with Florida, Notre Dame, and Virginia.

The 247 report notes that there were rumors in December that Boykin could flip and sign with Notre Dame. Instead, he held serve through the early signing period.

Now, Florida is the favorite. 94-percent of 247's crystal ball predictions have him ending up with the Gators.
