For the third time in two months, a former UK commit has flipped to Florida.
Three-star offensive guard Richie Leonard announced he has committed to Florida over Kentucky, Florida State, Tennessee, Miami, Georgia Tech and UCF.
Leonard is the third former UK commit to flip to Florida, joining offensive lineman Gerald Mincey and defensive tackle Lamar Goods. They are the only three prospects who have decommitted from Kentucky.
Recruited by Darin Hinshaw, Leonard became one of the first commitments in the 2020 class last October. He remained firm in his commitment, visiting UK unofficially for the spring game, until Florida State and Florida got involved in late April. Even after officially visiting Lexington in June, it was not enough to convince the Cocoa, Fl. native to leave the Sunshine State.
Kentucky took down Dan Mullen at The Swamp last season, but this year he’s taken quite a few UK recruits.
