  • Florida commit's mother walks out after he chooses Gators

Copeland, a four-star wide receiver, committed to Florida over Tennessee and Alabama on Wednesday in one of the more weird manners you'll see.

As soon as Copeland, ranked fifth in the USA among high school receivers, grabbed a Florida hat and announced he would play for the Gators rather than Alabama or Tennessee, Copeland's mother left the table. Perhaps tipping her preferences just a little, his mother was sitting next to him wearing a Tennessee hat and an Alabama sweatshirt.

Watch the weird scene below.

But then his mother returned to the scene, and wrapped her arms her around her son, providing somewhat of a resolution to a most non-traditional signing day experience.

When asked about it, he responded: "I don't know exactly why she walked out ..."

National Signing Day is supposed to be an overwhelmingly joyous occasion for the parents of recruits. Sure, every football parent has a favorite school which they hope their son will attend but it doesn't always work out perfectly.

Georgia claims top spot in recruiting battle
After an early signing period in December, Wednesday's National Signing Day wasn't as insane as we've seen in prior years. This is the first cycle for the December-February signing periods that we are all still trying to get a handle on.

"We had a lot of conversations back and forth about where I should go to school", Copeland said while being interviewed on television during the awkward situation.

About a day before, Copeland tweeted about the struggle to make his decision. His mom needs to get on board with this because she has no choice.

Dorian Gerald, the nation's No. 1-ranked JUCO defensive end, could be a late addition to the class.
