Coley highlights FSU's weekend visitors
By Corey Dowlar
Florida State will host their second crop of January official visitors beginning on Friday. While it isn't as large or as important of a weekend as the previous one, some of these visitors could likely end up in the haul on national signing day.
Here’s a look at those who are scheduled to be in Tallahassee.
WR Stacy Coley (Oakland Park, Fla./Northeast): Coley has been quiet about his recruiting the whole way through, and that probably won't change much after this weekend, either. Sources at Florida State say they feel good about landing him, but there is still a while yet to go.
OL Wilson Bell (Prichard, Ala./M.T. Blount): This newly-offered lineman seems to like Florida State a good amount, but still needs to see it for himself. In comparison to his other offers, the Seminoles are clearly the best, but will need to show him what he is looking for.
WR/CB Nate Andrews (Fairhope, Ala./Fairhope): A current Minnesota commitment, Andrews probably wouldn't pull the trigger this weekend until a few other dominoes fall. FSU sources indicate that the Seminoles do like him, though. If Florida State needs another defensive back, from their perspective, then Andrews could be the guy.
RB Gus Edwards (Staten Island, N.Y./Tottenville): It has become hard to discern if Florida State is serious about the Syracuse commitment. If he joins the class, he would be in a big-back role similar to what Lonnie Pryor was for the last few years. He will also visit Rutgers next weekend.
QB/ATH John Franklin (Plantation, Fla./South Plantation): Coming off the heels of a good visit to Tennessee last weekend, Franklin will want to see a lot of what made him commit to Florida State in the first place this weekend. Franklin says the Seminoles are still going to try him out at quarterback initially, but could move to receiver or defensive back if that doesn't work out down the road.
