Florida’s highly ranked 2010 recruiting class has shrunk by one.
Athlete/cornerback Travon Van, who has not qualified academically, is enrolled in summer classes at Marshall after receiving his release from UF, according to the Huntington Herald-Dispatch.
Van was a four-star prospect who was expected to compete for possible early playing time at cornerback with the Gators, but he has had academic issues dating back to high school at Helix High in Lemon Grove, Calif. He played at Milford Academy this past season before signing with UF in February.
If Van does not qualify academically before the 2010 season, he will sit out the 2010-11 school year at Marshall as an academic non-qualifier.
Eventually, Van would be playing for former Florida assistant Doc Holliday, who is the head coach at Marshall.
