Austin Rivers De-Commits From Florida (NO WAI!!)

Last week, Blue Devil Insider reported that Austin Rivers would de-commit from the University of Florida in the very near future.  Today, the news is official – Austin Rivers has reopened his recruitment.  Despite the de-commitment, Florida is not out of the running.

"I have reopened my recruitment ...," Rivers told "I have decommitted [from] Florida at this time. I still really like them, but I need to go ahead and reopen things right now."

Speculation about Rivers decommitting from Florida began last July and intensified when he subsequently visited Duke's campus. rates the 6-foot-4 guard -- who is the son of Celtics coach Doc Rivers -- as the third-best prospect in the Class of 2011. Rivers told he's now considering Duke, Florida and North Carolina, but that he "may open it up a little more later on."

This development leaves Florida with just one commitment for the Class of 2011 -- Brad Beal.

Max rates Beal as the nation's fourth-best prospect, one spot behind Rivers.
