Florida RB switches commitment
"I have decommitted from Clemson and now I'm committed to South Carolina," Ben Axon said moments ago. "I respect the Clemson coaches and wanted to give it time to play out ever since Tommy left but they're coming off another conference loss to Georgia Tech and it just seems like they're going downhill right now." Axon, 6-foot-2 and 185 pounds, said he's already informed the Clemson coaches of his decision. "I talked to them already and let them know," he said. "I wanted to let them know first so there wouldn't be any problems or anything like that." So why South Carolina? "They were one of the final schools I was looking at when I committed in the first place," he said. "I really like the coaches, the direction of the program. They play in a tough conference and they provide a better chance for me to go in and play. They have a senior running back and the guy behind him is a senior. Their third guy is a true freshman and he's not playing a whole lot yet. I feel like I have a good chance to go in and play and maybe even start as a true freshman. All around, it was just a better situation for me." South Carolina isn't the only school that kept recruiting Axon after he committed to Clemson. "West Virginia and Purdue have been staying in contact as well," he said. For now, Axon said he only plans on taking one visit for sure but a second one is a possibility. "I don't think I'll be going to Clemson for a visit," he said. "The only one I plan on taking for sure is to South Carolina. I might visit Purdue but I'm not sure yet." So how firm is the commitment? "It's a strong commitment," he said. "I'm really only considering one school now and I'm real happy about my decision." Axon is having a solid season this year for Manatee, as he's gained over 500 yards on the ground and 11 touchdowns.
