Arizona fans got a taste of how cruel the recruiting world can be this morning.

A week after committing to Arizona, five-star cornerback Jalen Tabor has decommitted from the UA and instead decided to pledge to Florida.

The Gators weren't even in Tabor's final two a week ago, but that didn't stop him from committing. 

Tabor committed to Arizona over Alabama at the Under Armour All-American Game on ESPN a week ago. He's ranked as the 15th best prospect in the country by ESPN.com and was expected to provide an immediate impact for the Wildcats in the secondary.

Instead, Tabor will never wear cardinal and navy and will head to Florida to play for coach Will Muschamp and the Gators.

"It's definitely correct. Jalen will be a Florida Gator," Tabor's mom, Marie, said in a text message to ESPN.com "Final decision."

Tabor took official visits to Maryland, Arizona, Florida and Alabama before trimming his list to Alabama and Arizona on Christmas day.

One of the main reasons Tabor picked Arizona was because of his high school teammate and UA running back commit Jonathan Haden. Haden is expected to arrive next week for the spring semester and be with the Wildcats for spring drills.

This morning, Haden sent out a tweet about his friend's decision to flip to Florida.

"Think 100 times before you make a decision, But once that decision is taken, stand by it as one man."

He also tweeted: "Great decision! Be happy! Just wish it was done differently..."
