Mandarin High School QB Carson Beck has re-opened his recruitment.

And baseball is off the table.

The 2018 State Champion and Mr. Football award-winner announced he has de-committed from Alabama on "The Sports Den" program on 1010 XL-92.5 FM, hosted by Beck's quarterback trainer, Denny Thompson, and First Coast News Sports Analyst, James Coleman. Beck was set to play football and baseball for the Crimson Tide. He said that he called Saban and informed him of his decision on Saturday night.

The 2020 QB has not shut the door on Alabama, who he said is still "high on the list." That list includes Florida, Miami, Georgia Tech, and Alabama.

Beck visited Florida Saturday, then drove down to Miami Sunday for a visit. His would-be quarterbacks coach at Alabama, Dan Enos, is now the offensive coordinator in Coral Gables. Beck said during the radio interview that he grew up a Florida Gators fan.

Beck then went on to say that he was done with baseball. Prior to pledging to Alabama as a dual-sport student-athlete, Beck had been committed to Kevin O'Sullivan and the Florida baseball program. 

Beck said he does not anticipate to make a decision until later this year.
