Agholor highlights huge FSU visit weekend

1/13/2012

Florida State will entertain ESPNU 150 prospects Nelson Agholor, Ronald Darby and Leonard Williams this weekend.

Agholor (Tampa, Fla./Berkeley Prep), the nation's 41st-ranked prospect, has said that the Seminoles are part of his top group of schools with Notre Dame, Florida, USC and Oklahoma.

This is his fourth official visit, with the final one expected to be USC.

"I wanted to give FSU another look and I have a very good relationship with coach Lawrence Dawsey," Agholor said. "I'm really going just go and hang out with the players, talk with the coaches and see what happens with that."

Agholor's visit to FSU might have come as a surprise to those that see him mainly down to Florida and USC, but Agholor says that all the schools he is visiting has a shot.

"I don't have any real expectations for my visits I just want to feel comfortable there," Agholor said. "It's important to feel comfortable and know I can succeed there."

Darby (Oxon Hill, Md./Potomac), the 69th-ranked player in the nation, was a verbal commit to Notre Dame until after the Under Armour All-America game. The Irish are still in the hunt for the 5-foot-11, 176-pound speedster but will be fighting it out with the Seminoles, Clemson, Auburn and quite possibly Maryland.

One thing in the Seminoles' favor could be their track program. FSU already has a commit from Marvin Bracy (Orlando, Fla./Boone), arguably the nation's top sprinter for his age.

Williams' visit to FSU is part of a final stretch that will see the Under Armour All-America defensive lineman also take officials to USC and Miami.

The Seminoles will have to do some work on the 6-5, 265-pound senior, as he has said that Florida and Auburn stand out for his services. Williams (Daytona Beach, Fla./Mainland), who was born in California, is also seriously looking at the Trojans.

"All of these visits are important to me because I'm going to be spending the next four years there," Williams said. "Right now I'm going into each visit looking to see if it's the best fit."

FSU will have help selling these three undecided prospects, as several commitments will also be in Tallahassee on their officials.

Defensive back P.J. Williams (Ocala, Fla./Vanguard) and defensive lineman Dante Fowler Jr. (St. Petersburg, Fla./Lakewood) are among the commitments expected to be Tallahassee this weekend.
