Jamie Newberg of ESPN spent the day visiting Mobile, Alabama. Included in his trip was a visit with FSU commitments Alphonse Taylor and Chris Casher. He had this to say:
Just spent some time with Alphonse Taylor from Davidson HS. What a great young man. FSU is getting the total package. Davidson bookend tackles are Alphonse Taylor at 6-6,350 and Isaac Sampson at 6-6,360. Taylor carries that wt well. Never would guess he's THAT big. @ChadSimmons_ (Analyst for SCOUT) You should see Alphonse Taylor Wow.
The Chad Simmons of scout said:
@JNewbergESPN - I like him a lot. He looks like a different person now than he did when I saw him last spring. UPSIDE!
Remember that Taylor is listed as a three-star on scout. Could he receive a bump now that Simmons has seen him again?
Chris Cashers put on 15 lbs up to 235... all muscle. This will b only his 2nd season playing DE. Great upside for the Noles
RT @ArRecruitingGuy: JC OT Chris Stringer has committed to Arkansas.
You might be saying "Bud, why does a JUCO OT committing to Arkansas have anything to do with FSU?" It could help with Daniel Glauser.
