Georgia landed a commitment from four-star defensive back Latavious Brini just over a month ago, and he may have a change of heart.
Brini, after announcing his decision on July 3, is showing interest in Miami and Florida among other schools on Twitter. As some recruits choose to shut down their recruitment after committing, Brini has decided to leave his options open.
As a result, he isn’t fully dedicated to playing at Georgia next season.
“I’m about 85% committed to Georgia,” Brini told SicEmDawgs.com. “I need to get back up to Athens and see how it really is. However, I like the coaching staff and the future of the program.”
It appeared that Brini may be unsettled on Georgia after attending a camp at Florida just two weeks after his commitment. At the time, he denied that the visit had any significance, however the factor of playing in-state is attractive to Brini.
“I’m also looking at Miami, South Florida, Florida and Florida Atlantic,” Brini said. “The interest is low, but playing at home is attractive (being out of Hialeah, Fla.).”
The 6-foot-2, 200 pound defensive back would be a significant loss for Georgia if he is to stick to his home roots. Brini is ranked as the 34th best defensive back nationally, according to the 247Sports Composite.
Brini currently joins five-star Richard LeCounte and four-star William Poole III as secondary commitments for the 2017 recruiting class.
Brini’s position coach at Hialeah Charter Academy, Jeff Pond, hasn’t noticed a change in his dedication to Georgia. However, he indicates that it’s something to keep an eye on.
“I’m not sensing anything different about his commitment,” Pond said. “I know that Florida and Miami were the other schools in his top-three, but they picked up commitments from other cornerbacks in the last week or so.”
