2012 Recruiting Discussion Thread #48

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.

Specific Player Questions (Check here before asking)

  • Mario Edwards Jr.- Edwards Jr has Official Visit Florida State. The only other school in the running is Texas. Most question though if he could insult his father's school at this point. He looks to be solid in his commitment to Florida State.
  • 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. Those schools should not matter though, as he's been quoted as saying it's down to Florida and Florida State. His recruitment should be something interesting to watch. Dante Fowler looks to be solid to Florida State; Leonard Williams is the only wildcard that may change things.
  • Leonard Williams- Many people thought Florida State was done at DE. Perhaps not. Leonard showed out at the Under Armour game, and looks to be an Auburn-Florida-Florida State battle. Experts are saying Auburn at this point.
  • 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. 1/4/12 update: Corey Long of is reporting he plans to visit FSU the weekend of January 20th. UPDATE: Peat did not make the visit due to some family issue. Most believe Nebraska leads at this point.
  • Jameis Winston- is a Nole. There's no talk of him switching to hometown Alabama. There's no visits scheduled to Florida State yet (that are known of), but there are none to Alabama either. No need to worry about this point. As mentioned below, he enjoyed his Official Visit.
  • Ronald Darby- Five star Notre Dame decommitment from Maryland. Should be a FSU-Clemson battle. Rumor has it that Florida State leads because of their track program, and he wants to play with WR Marvin Bracy (fastest high school runner ever).
  • AJ Leggett- will enroll at Marshall. He's not coming to Florida State, where he would've been a sign and place.
  • Early Enrollees- JUCO OL Daniel Glauser, RB Mario Pender, P Cason Beatty
  • Colin Blake- has decommitted from TAMU. FSU, TCU, OU look to be the favorites.
  • Reggie Northrup- 4 star Miami LB commit... or so they think? Grew up a Florida State fan, and some insiders have him flipping to FSU. Comes from FSU feeder school First Coast (Jacksonville, FL).
  • Tracy Howard- four/five-star corner Tracy Howard is seriously considering UF and FSU. Many believe UF leads, but he is taking a visit to Miami this weekend and this thing could go in any direction.
