Jacob Copeland had the biggest decision of his life on Wednesday, and with family near him, he chose to take his talents to the Florida Gators.
His mom, who was seated next to him with a Tennessee beanie and Bama shirt on, didn’t approve of the decision, so she got up and walked away.
When asked about it, he responded: “I don’t know exactly why she walked out … I can’t go with my mom, I want to go with my heart.”
She eventually came back minutes later to console her crying son.
Well that was awkward. Jacob Copeland commits to Florida. His mom (in a Tennessee hat and Alabama sweater) just walks off. He said he had to go with his heart. pic.twitter.com/tsUlbE35BO
