Three-star wide receiver C.J. Worton and the Florida State Seminoles have appeared to have been distancing themselves from each other for weeks.
On Tuesday, Worton made it official and decommitted.

Worton has been committed to Florida State since August but has been flirting with other schools and taking official visits, most recently to the Florida Gators last weekend. ‘
“It was awesome. … The whole time, it was just awesome,” Worton told Chris Hays of The Orlando Sentinel.
On the trip, Worton tweeted at five-star wide receiver and Florida State commitment Travis Rudolph, asking Rudolph if he was going to visit Florida. Since then, rumors have persisted that Florida State was unhappy with the tweet and that may be why the two decided to part ways for good. Worton was supposed to officially visit Tallahassee this weekend, but that trip is off.
Worton probably sees the chance for immediate playing time at Florida (or possibly West Virginia) and see that Florida State has Rudolph committed, looks good for five-star Ermon Lane and are also squarely in the mix for five-star Malachi Dupre and four-star Virginia Tech commitment Javon Harrison.
Worton is the brother of UCF Knights’ wide receiver J.J. Worton.
