Like many others, Nick Waisome heard the news about Florida coach Urban Meyer's resignation on Wednesday but the four-star cornerback from Groveland (Fla.) South Lake didn't want to make any comments.
Instead, Waisome plans to return home and talk about his future with his family and some advisers to figure out the next step in his recruitment.
"Right now, I heard the news," Waisome said. "To tell you the truth, I'm not going to make any comments about it right now. Me and my family are going into meetings with some of my advisors also."
The news broke so fast Wednesday that Waisome, a 5-foot-10, 171-pound prospect who committed to the Gators on Aug. 18, had not yet heard from any other programs. That could change soon.
Waisome said he had no prior knowledge that Meyer was going to resign again like he did around this time last season citing health concerns only to return a day later.
"I'm just kind of in shock," Waisome said. "I'm going to go home and talk about it with my family."
Rivals.com rates Waisome No. 9 at cornerback, No. 125 nationally and No. 26 in the Florida state rankings.
Florida State was seriously involved in his recruitment and he also had offers from Auburn, Georgia, LSU, South Carolina, Michigan, Nebraska and many other national programs.
