In the video, Copeland's mom seemed to be taken aback after the student athlete chooses the University of Florida's Gators cap instead of hats representing Alabama and Tennessee. The top wideout was believed to be down to Alabama, Florida and Tennessee. To be fair, ESPN2 later reported Copeland's mother returned to the gym where her son had committed to his college future. Still, you can't deny the fact she was bitter after the initial choice was made. His mom, sitting next to him, was wearing a Tennessee toque and an Alabama sweatshirt. It was heartbreaking to watch her walk away as if he'd betrayed her. "We had a lot of conversations back and forth about where I should go to school", Copeland said during a television interview after the awkward situation.


Copeland made a verbal commitment to Florida last summer, but chose to open up his recruitment after the school fired Jim McElwain.

The 6-foot-1, 191-pound wide receiver is ranked the No. 5 receiver in the nation according to ESPN and is No. 40 on the ESPN 300 list.
