National Signing Day 2018: DE/OLB Caleb Tannor picks Nebraska over Florida

A Georgia prospect heads to corn country.

The second serious target of National Signing Day 2018 for the Florida Gators, defensive end/linebacker Caleb Tannor, made his decision public nearly an hour after it was originally scheduled to be announced.

That didn’t help the Florida Gators, as Tannor picked Nebraska over the Gators in a ceremony at his high school live-streamed via Facebook.

Tannor, a four-star player who had been considering the Gators in addition to Auburn and Nebraska, was seen as a Huskers lean going into National Signing Day, and is a nice get for new Nebraska coach Scott Frost.

The 6’4”, 225-pound four-star defensive end was just one of several defensive linemen considering Florida set to announce on Wednesday — and there’s more than a minimal chance that the Gators will end up landing others instead of Tannor as the day progresses.

Still, given that Florida’s morning so far has consisted of seeing two of those linemen — in-state prospect Malcolm Lamar, and now Tannor — choose other schools, it would be good if the Gators knew more about having other commitments or signings on deck than a more anxious fan base does.
