Christo Kourtzidis looking at Texas?


Tight end Christo Kourtzidis (Orange Lutheran, Calif.) took what he thought was his final official visit last weekend to Florida State. But an in-home visit Tuesday night from Texas may have changed that.

Kourtzidis said his commitment to Florida State is very solid but Texas assistant coach Major Applewhite came in for a home visit Tuesday. The visit has him thinking about the Longhorns.

“It was pretty cool, I liked the coach a lot,” Kourtzidis said. “I’m supposed to call him back today and let him know if I want to visit this weekend or not. My dad has some questions and I’m not sure he wants me to visit but I’m still thinking it over. I’ve heard a lot of good things about Texas so I might call Connor Brewer and see what he thinks.”

Kourtzidis took an official visit to Cal back in December and visited the Florida State, the school he committed to back in the summer, last weekend.

“I had a lot of fun,” Kourtzidis said. “I visited twice in the summer, so I had already seen everything and did all the campus tours already. It was fun being there with the guys and spending time with the coaches. Florida State has an incredible program and their facilities are pretty impressive.

“Probably the highlight for me was the basketball game against North Carolina. FSU blew them out, the atmosphere was incredible and then Roy Williams pulled all his starters out of the game, went back to locker room and left five walk on players all alone. He basically left them for dead out there, it was hilarious.”

Kourtzidis said Cal is still in the running, despite recent coaching changes.

“I’m still looking at Cal as well,” he said. “I know a lot of recruits are kind of freaking out because Tosh [Lupoi] left but seriously, it doesn’t even affect most of them. He’s not going to be coaching you. I’m not affected at all, so I’m still looking at Cal, but I’m happy with FSU right now and feeling good about them after the visit.”
