Florida’s recruitment of C.J. Worton took a positive turn for the Gators Tuesday.

The Homestead South Dade receiver decommitted from Florida State, announcing his decision via Twitter.

Worton received offered on Jan. 9 from UF, where his older brother, Cody, was a walk-on safety for three years (2006-2008).

Offensive coordinator Kurt Roper and receivers coach Joker Phillips met with him Thursday before he officially visited Florida this past weekend.

Head coach Will Muschamp conducted an in-home visit Monday.

The 6-foot-1, 175-pounder has twice postponed an interview with The Sun this week, but described his trip to UF as “awesome” when he spoke with the Orlando Sentinel.

It is unclear if Worton will take any of his remaining official visits, but he is now expected to sign with Gators.
