FSU Wants More from Phenix City

Jamal Couch is committed to FSU, but the Seminoles are targeting more from his high school in Phenix City, Ala. One is Markail Benton and he is set to visit Tallahassee, Fla. soon...

Jamal Couch surprised some when he committed to Florida State not too long ago. Jimbo Fisher has to be excited about that commitment, but he and the FSU staff want more out of Central High School in Phenix City, Ala.

Like Couch, Markail Benton is a four-star on Scout and like Couch, he plays at Central, but the difference is, Benton is one class behind and part of the 2017 cycle.

Like quite a few schools, FSU offered the talented sophomore linebacker early, and the Seminoles are high on Benton's list.

Alabama, Auburn, and FSU are up there for Benton and Couch's commitment only helps their chances.

Benton is set to visit Tallahassee this weekend and he talks his interest in FSU and more with Scout in this interview.
