FSU suffers yet another decommitment amid coaching change to Willie Taggart


Florida State took yet another recruiting hit within weeks of former head coach Jimbo Fisher's departure and subsequent hiring of former Oregon coach Willie Taggart.

Four-star wide receiver Jalen Curry announced his decommitment on Tuesday via Twitter.

Curry has previously committed to FSU in July prior to his junior season due in large part to his relationship with tight ends coach Tim Brewster, who announced his intention to follow Fisher to A&M on Tuesday. Curry is believed to favor the Aggies, according to 247Sports' Crystal Ball predictions.

The Houston native ranks as the No. 13 wide receiver and No. 73 overall prospect for the 2018 national recruiting cycle, according to the 247Sports Composite.


Curry recorded 121 receptions for 1,570 yards and 18 touchdowns during his junior season. He is the fourth prospect to decommit from FSU's 2019 class and the second to do so within the last month after speculation of Fisher's eventual departure grew.

Fisher accepted the head coaching position at A&M on Dec. 1 and was replaced Taggart four days later.
