PENSACOLA, FL (WKRG/CNN) - One thing nobody will ever be able to say about Jacob Copeland: He isn't his own man. 

The four-star wide receiver sat next to his mother on National Signing Day, bypassing Tennessee and Alabama hats to put on a Florida hat, committing to the Gators.  

His mom was decked out in an Alabama sweater and Tennessee hat in an ensemble that seemed to yell, "anywhere but Florida." 

As soon as he made the reveal, she got up and stormed off.

Copeland had been paining over his decision, tweeting just before midnight Tuesday that he cried all night thinking about it. 

His mother returned later and gave him a hug.
