The Florida native becomes the third 2016 recruit to decommit from UVa since Mike London's departure

Amber Searls-USA TODAY Sports

On Thursday night, three-star running back Laderrien Wilson announced that he is no longer committed to the Virginia football program.

The 5-foot-10, 205-pound Wilson committed to UVa back in September, but was considered a flight risk when the Cavaliers dismissed head coach Mike London, and even more when Chris Beatty was not retained.

With London and Beatty now at Maryland, look for the Terps to be a major player for the former Virginia commit.

Wilson is the third 2016 recruit to reopen his options following the change at the top. Former linebacker commit Kenneth Ruff is now at Syracuse, and wide receiver Neru N'Shaka, who is still looking for a new home.

As far as UVa goes, the Wahoos are in good shape at running back. Tre Harbison, who is one of the stars of the entire class, is rock-solid with Virginia, and will arrive on grounds in a matter of days. In addition, tailback Chris Sharp was redshirted last fall, and will form a nice one-two punch with Harbison in the backfield for years to come.

Virginia's entire recruiting class (minus the four early enrollees) will take their official visits to grounds on the weekend of January 22-24.
