GAINESVILLE -- Rumors are circulating on recruiting websites that prep cornerback Victor Hampton of Charlotte Independence (N.C.) High is no longer committed to the University of Florida.
Hampton, rated a four-star recruit by Rivals.com, recently visited Tennessee unofficially. The cornerback, who apparently still has plenty of work to do to qualify, transferred high schools this summer from powerhouse Charlotte (N.C.) Independence to upstart Darlington (S.C.) High. (Draw your own conclusions.)
If Hampton is out at Florida, then that means the Gators will go hard after Fort Lauderdale St. Thomas Aquinas cornerback Cody Riggs, the son of former NFL star Gerald Riggs. Riggs led St. Thomas in interceptions in 2008 and is considered one of the top defensive back prospects in the nation. Here's a feature on Cody Riggs.
