Penn State Football Recruiting: Skyler Mornhinweg Decommits From Penn State, Verbals To Florida

Highly-touted quarterback Skyler Mornhinweg, who had already backed away from a commitment to Stanford in favor of Penn State, changed his mind once again.

ESPN reports the Nittany Lions lost the four star prospect, son of Eagles offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg, to the Florida Gators this week, when the quarterback gave a verbal commitment to Florida coach Will Muschamp.

Mornhinweg originally committed to Penn State last July, but now becomes one of many recruits to flee University Park after the Jerry Sandusky scandal and Joe Paterno's subsequent firing. The 6-3, 215 pound Mornhinweg reportedly visited Florida this weekend with his mother and enjoyed his time. Muschamp and newly-hired Florida offensive coordinator Brent Pease then visited Mornhinweg's school on Wednesday and he was soon a Gator, according to GatorCountry.com.
