It’s an exciting time for me,” Tabor wrote. “I’ve decided to do what’s best for me and my family by continuing to pursue my dreams. But I’m not saying goodbye. I’m saying see you later. Hopefully I’ll make y’all proud and show how my passion for this game continues to shine through.

Tabor now figures to be one of the best cornerbacks in this year’s class. Many have Ohio State cornerback Marshon Lattimore ranked as the top CB, but Tabor could be the next one to come off the board and he could hear his name called in the first round. If that’s the case, that will give Florida two cornerbacks go in the first round in back-to-back years after Vernon Hargreaves was selected No. 11 overall in 2016. Fellow Florida corner Quincy Wilson also figures to go early on in the process, though he might be more of a second or third round prospect.
