2012 Recruiting Discussion Thread #25

Welcome to the recruiting discussion thread.  Please refer to the Recruiting Board for information on prospects.  We are asking readers comment here instead of the recruiting board so that the recruiting board will load quicker.  Feel free to talk recruiting news, rumor, information, etc.  Amateurs and experts are all welcome.  No question is too simple.  Have a projected class?  That's fine as well.

Once this thread fills up, we will start a new one.  

If you post information from another site, please indicate from where you read it.  

Specific Player Questions (Check here before asking)

  • Mario Edwards Jr.- His recruitment has been heating up ever since Texas had him official visit for the Red River Rivalry (Texas-Oklahoma). That was the second time Mario Edwards Jr. had taken an official visit when Oklahoma was the away team (first being FSU-Oklahoma on September 17). Since the RRR, an ESPN article had reported that he's decommitted. Since then, Mario has denied those rumors of decommitment. However, he has said that Oklahoma is in fact in first place despite his verbal commitment to Florida State. Florida State needs to get back on track to uphold his commitment. A National Championship contender (Oklahoma) will be a hard fought battle for someone like Mario.
  • Dante Fowler- His recruitment has been very interesting. He's grown up a Florida State fan, but still has ties to Florida. He's taken multiple visit to Florida, including this summer when he was rumored to be leaning toward Florida. He also took in the beating Florida received from Alabama in early October. He's remained a Florida State commitment, but is scheduled to take official visits to University of Southern California, as well as Louisiana State. He has been quoted as being concerned about Florida State's recent skid. His recruitment should be something interesting to watch.
  • Dorial Green-Beckham- FSU is not in the race for this receiver from Missouri.  His brother is very sick and he wants to stay closer to Arkansas.  That means Oklahoma, Missouri, Arkansas, etc.  Not FSU.
  • Andrus Peat- One of the more intriguing players in this class. Although at first glance you question why a kid from Arizona with a brother at Nebraska would go to FSU, there is some interest here. Peat's grandparents surprisingly live in Tallahassee. FSU still isn't the favorite to get Peat, that's probably Nebraska, but it's not impossible for Peat to be a Nole come signing day. And there is no question that FSU would take him if he wants in.
  • Announcement Dates:


Please keep in mind that it is unlikely all of these players will qualify.  FSU is unlikely to enroll 25 players or anything like that.
