Miami Norland junior offensive tackle Kadeem Telfort announced on Tuesday that he has decommitted from the Miami Hurricanes and is now committed to the Florida Gators.
The 6-6, 310-pound three-star prospect in the class of 2017 made the two announcements within minutes of each other on Twitter.
I've talked it over with my parents and we came to a decision that I will decommit from The University Of Miami.— Kadeem Telfort ® (@Nosackzone___) July 7, 2015

The Gators now have three commitments in their 2017 class -- all from Miami-Dade or Broward County -- in Telfort, Allen and Deerfield Beach wide receiver Lavarus Tigner.
Their 2016 class includes commitments Joshua Hammond of Hallandale, Vosean Joseph of Norland, Miami Central's Eric Mitchell, Deerfield Beach's Aaron Robinson and Southwest Miami's Christopher McWilliams -- a testament to co-defensive coordinator and linebackers coach Randy Shannon's recruiting work in South Florida.
UM's 2017 class bodes well despite the loss of Telfort as its seven commitments still have the Canes second only to Ohio State in the 247 Sports team rankings.
