Sidell Corley Eliminates UF



   GAINESVILLE - Highly-touted defensive end Sidell Corley has decided not to come to Florida afterall, his father said Sunday night.

  Corley orally committed to Florida very early in the process, but has been saying for the past few weeks that he would continue visiting other schools and debating his options. His father told Sunday night his son has eliminated Florida.

   "Sidell told Florida today that we are de-committing and cancelling his visit,'' Sidell Corley, Sr. said. "They are out. Sidell talked to Coach (Charlie) Strong and Coach (Urban) Meyer and they've tried to talk us out of it but Sidell's mind is made up. They've decided to take more defensive ends than we were led to believe so we've decided to go in another direction. There are no hard feelings but we felt it was best to just move on.''

  Corley is 6-foot-4, 260 pounds and ranked by as No. 4 at his position.
