FSU, Miami battling in new territory

By Jared Shanker

It is not a surprise to see Florida State and Miami (Fla) battling it out as the final two for a college prospect.

It is a little unusual when that player is a football player from New York City.

Three-star running back Augustus Edwards (Staten Island, N.Y./Tottenville) decommitted from Syracuse on Thursday and named the Seminoles and Hurricanes as his new finalists.

"I'm now considering only FSU and Miami," he said in a text message.

He officially visited Florida State the weekend of Jan. 18 and will visit Miami beginning Friday.

Both programs are "even," Edwards said.
