Forsyth (Ga.) Mary Persons 2017 4-star defensive end Malik Herring took a visit to Florida State for the Miami game last Saturday. Herring has offers from nearly every division one school in the south including Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Georgia, South Carolina and Tennessee in addition to Florida State.
Herring really enjoyed the visit, especially the atmosphere during the game.
"I loved every bit of it," Herring said. "The atmosphere was amazing. I couldn't hear myself think on third down."
He was able to talk with multiple Florida State coaches during the visit including defensive ends coach Brad Lawing.
"He told me that he really wants me," Herring said. "That he's going to be in my tail, and he thinks I'm their type of guy."
Herring took the visit with 2017 4-star defensive back Jamyest Williams and 2017 4-star linebacker Jaden Hunter, who is the younger brother of Florida State defensive back Tyler Hunter. Herring said that they are looking to go to school together.
