Rabb, who originally committed to Army on National Signing Day in 2011, spent the 2011-12 school year at the United States Military Academy Preparatory School in West Point, N.Y.

"We're excited to have Greg join our program. He is a talented back who has the potential to be an impact player for us," Tavani said. "Greg was one of the top players on our recruiting board two years ago before he signed with Army. He contacted us earlier this summer and wanted to go in a different direction after spending a year at West Point Prep."

Tavani and assistant coach Joe Dougherty, who handles recruiting in much of Florida, had originally recruited Rabb out of University School in Davie, Fla. where he was a bruising fullback and linebacker. In addition to four years of varsity football, Rabb participated in wrestling and in the 100m and 200m in track and field.

A National Honor Society student in high school, Rabb plans to major in Engineering at Lafayette. He is the son of A.C. and La Shune Rabb and is the youngest of three boys with brothers Brian and Jonathan.
