In addition to Duke and Tulane, the Land O Lakes star has been offered by Tennessee, South Florida, Louisville, Minnesota and Auburn.

"I called Coach Dickey from Florida State to find out when he was coming down," Weatherford said.

Weatherford, who has played quarterback since the age of 12, still remains high on Florida State but he's going to keep an open mind.
