Former Colorado cornerback Cormani McClain is reportedly set to visit Florida as he continues exploring his options in the transfer portal.

Matt Zenitz of 247Sports reported the visit will happen in the “near future,” though no date has been set.

Pete Nakos of On3 Sports reported McCalin visited Florida on Friday and is expected to make another trip during the upcoming week:

McClain was the nation’s top-rated cornerback coming out of high school and the No. 14 overall prospect in the 2023 class. He played sparingly during his lone season under Deion Sanders, recording 13 total tackles and one pass defensed.

It did not appear McClain enjoyed his time in Colorado, either, throwing shade at the program after announcing he was entering the portal.

“Some people just gotta take a step back from things sometimes, certain people, you know,” McClain said. “I feel like I just don’t want to play for clicks. I actually want to be involved with a great leading program that’s going to develop players.”

McClain did not do much to help his stock at Colorado, as he dropped from a 5-star to a 4-star prospect and was only the fifth-rated cornerback in the portal. Sanders said maturity was an issue for McClain, noting he was not always committed to putting in work.

“I’m always in prayer for young men, and I want the best for them,” Sanders told DNVR. “And I pray to God that he goes to a program that challenges him as well as holds him accountable and develops him as a young man. Unfortunately, we weren’t the program that could accomplish that.”

McClain is the top remaining player left on the transfer market yet to make his decision by a significant margin. No other top-50 player is yet to lock in their next school of choice, according to 247Sports.
