Maquedius Bain, a top defensive tackle recruit, announced Wednesday that he is no longer committed to Florida State. The move was not a surprise.
Bain had recently named a top five schools that did not include the Seminoles, yet maintained that he was still committed to FSU. So much for that.
The report comes from Amy Campbell of Scout, who tweeted:
2013 DE Maquedius Bain says he's no longer committed to #FSU
Bain has said he's been looking around for awhile, also likes #canes #lsu #bama #USC #gators all in the mix. Officially decommits from #fsu
This news comes on the heels of Bain's coach, former Miami Hurricane Chad Wilson, telling SB Nation Tuesday night that Bain would not be attending the Jimbo Fisher Camp with the rest of his Ft. Lauderdale (Fla.) University School teammates.
Bain is a three or four-star recruit on most of the major services. He has a wealth of physical talent, but is very raw. And that is at odds with his wish to play or even start as a freshman at his school of choice. The option to do so certainly was not available in Tallahassee.

Recruiting analysts are speculating that Bain will soon commit to the hometown Miami Hurricanes. Like Florida State, LSU, Alabama, USC and Florida won't be able to offer the immediate playing time he craves.
