According to Chad Simmons of, Joshua Outlaw has decommited from the University of Florida Sunday. Outlaw committed to Florida in April of this year after an unofficial visit.

Outlaw's coach at Martin Luther King High School told about his decommitment, “Josh has opened up his recruitment. I’m not sure why but he just told me he wanted to open things up. I’m not sure if he is still considering Florida or not.” 

Outlaw is a 6'4", 270-lb. offensive guard from Lithonia, Georgia. Before committing to Florida he had offers from Clemson, Louisville, Auburn, Miami (FL), Georgia, South Carolina and several other colleges. The 4-star linemen is ranked the 13th-best guard in the 2013 class by says of Outlaw:

"Outlaw is a strong, physical lineman with the playing strength and agility to dominate as a run blocker. Is very efficient playing left offensive tackle however it appears his projected size and athleticism are better suited for the offensive guard position at the major level of competition."

It is unclear who will continue to recruit Outlaw, but very rarely does a player recommit to a school after already decommiting.
