Dan McCarney’s departure part of reason for Jeoffrey Pagan’s decommitment

Four-star DE Jeoffrey Pagan decommitted from Florida on Monday, changing his mind in part because of the departure of defensive line coach Dan McCarney for North Texas.

Danny Wilkins, Pagan’s high school coach at Asheville (N.C.) High, said, “I think he’s concerned about the distance from home a little bit more as time approaches, too, for signing.”

The Gators had honored their offer after Pagan tore his PCL and MCL earlier this month. He has since had surgery under the direction of Dr. James Andrews, one of the most renowned sports surgeons in the country.

“His knee’s doing much better,” said Wilkins. “It was not as severe as they thought. He’s in rehab and doing well. And they expect a full recovery.”

Pagan’s decommitment leaves Florida with 17 recruits in the 2011 class. They are:
