Back in January, TomahawkNation interviewed kicker Marshall Morgan. Since then, Marshall committed to Georgia, and Florida State received a commitment from Roberto Aguayo. As we documented on TN, Florida State had its eyes set on two options, and Aguayo pulled the trigger first. Marshall committed to Georgia just hours after Aguayo committed to Florida State on January 31st. We were able to catch up with Florida State's 2012 Kicker/Punter commit Roberto Aguayo.

Aguayo measures in at a solid 6' 195 lbs. Numbers similar to Florida State's current kicker Dustin Hopkins (6'2" 185 lbs). His high school (South Lake) has recently been good to Florida State with the 2011 CB early enrollment of Nick Waisome. His offer sheet is very impressive much like Waisome, which includes SEC schools such as rival Florida, LSU, Georgia, among others. His offers make sense considering his farthest field goal is 60 yards, and he can punt over 50 yards. His kickoffs go an impressive 82 yards as well. He was special teams MVP of his high school, and all county for the last two years.

When asked of his opinion of Coach Gran and the coaching staff, Roberto had this to say, "Coach Gran and the coaching staff are perfect to me. I think I will do well and learn a lot from them." Coach Gran wasn't the only member of the Florida State program that he's talked to through his recruiting process. "Dustin's (Hopkins) a good guy I talked to him after I committed and I know I will learn alot from him when I get there," Aguayo said.

Florida State's rebuilding program wasn't the only thing that attracted Aguayo to Florida State. He mentioned the importance of academics in his decision. He plans to major in either criminology or sports management when he arrives on campus. Until then, his goals are simply to keep his grades up and work hard on his game.
