Philadelphia (Penn.) Imhotep Institute 4-star tight end Naseir Upshur has changed up his visit plans and will visit Florida State for three days starting Wednesday of next week. Upshur will be bringing his father and brother’s along for the trip.
Upshur wanted to visit Florida State for the Jimbo Fisher Camp in July, but couldn’t make it.
“I was supposed to visit two weeks ago but a family problem came up,” Upshur said when asked why he had changed his visit plans.
Upshur hasn’t visited Florida State yet, and is anxious to get down to Tallahassee for a visit and had a lot to say about why he is so interested in Florida State.
“I want to see everything,” Upshur said. “Florida State runs a pro style offense, and coach Fisher and coach Brewster are just some great dudes with great backgrounds.”
Florida State recently suffered the loss of 4-star tight end Isaac Nauta after he decommitted, but Upshur said that doesn’t matter.
“I was in contact with coach Brewster every day before he decommitted,” Upshur said. “It doesn’t change my opinion of Florida State at all.”
Tight ends coach Tim Brewster thinks Upshur would fit in very well at Florida State.
“He said that I’d fit well in the Florida State offense,” Upshur said. “He can see me being great.”
The 6-foot-3, 240-pound tight end is rated as the No. 10 tight end in the country and the No. 215 overall prospect in the 2016 Scout 300. In addition to Florida State he will stop by South Carolina on his way back to Pennsylvania.
