St. Joe's Prep quarterback Skyler Mornhinweg could reveal his college football destination on Monday.

St. Joseph's Prep quarterback Skyler Mornhinweg is expected to end the suspense surrounding his football future with an announcement that could come as early as Monday.

On Friday, several web reports had the 6-foot-3, 215-pound senior switching his commitment to Florida from Penn State.

"As of two days ago, based on a really good source, he was 100 percent going to Florida," Mike Farrell, of Rivals.com, said Sunday evening. "Unless he's had second thoughts, I think it's a done deal."

Three Florida coaches, including boss Will Muschamp and new offensive coordinator Brent Pease, were in town last week to meet with the three-star recruit. He visited Florida the weekend of Jan. 20-22.

Mornhinweg, son of Eagles offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg, committed to Penn State last July. He reconsidered his choice after a child sex-abuse scandal broke in State College in November.

National signing day is Wednesday.
