VIDEO: Mom walks off camera when recruit picks Florida

When Jacob Copeland, the No. 5 wide receiver in the country, picked Florida over Alabama and Tennessee on Wednesday, his mother got up from the table and walked away.

A 4-star recruit from Escambia High School in Pensacola, Fla., Copeland laid out Alabama, Florida and Tennessee hats on a table before picking up and putting on the Florida hat on ESPN.

Copeland’s mother, who was wearing a Tennessee hat and an Alabama sweatshirt, was clearly surprised when Copeland announced his decision. She gave a disapproving look before grabbing her purse and walking off camera.
