4-star G Curtis Dunlap decommits from Florida

Curtis Dunlap

Florida suffered its second decommitment in as many days Tuesday when four-star guard Curtis Dunlap re-opened his recruiting.

Dunlap (6 feet 4, 368 pounds), from Bradenton (Fla.) IMG Academy, pledged to Florida in July. He is considered one of the top-10 guards nationally as well as a top-200 prospect overall.

Three-star wide receiver Jalynn Williams of St. Petersburg (Fla.) High decommitted Monday.

Dunlap, who is a Jacksonville native, is scheduled to visit Minnesota this weekend. He visited Arkansas in early November, and those two are considered his favorites.

His decommitment leaves Florida with two o-line commitments: four-star tackle Richard Gouraige, a national top-100 player from Tampa Cambridge Christian, and three-star tackle Chris Bleich from Plymouth (Pa.) Wyoming Valley West; Bleich may play center at Florida.

Florida is in the hunt for five-star tackle Nicholas Petit-Frere, a national top-20 player from Tampa Berkeley Prep, and four-star tackle William Barnes, a national top-50 player from Apopka (Fla.) High. Barnes could be a guard at the next level; Apopka High runs a wing-T offense, and Barnes is advanced as a run blocker.

Another possibility is three-star guard Ed Montilus, who lines up next to Barnes at Apopka. Montilus is a road-grader in the running game.
