Massive OL Visits Noles

For some time Florida State has been hot after offensive tackle prospect <b>Geoff Berniard</b> of Lafayette (LA) St. Thomas More. The Seminole coaching staff finally got the massive 6-foot-8 and 310 pound lineman in town for an unofficial visit. Where do the Noles stand for the three-star prospect?

"I would have to say Florida State is my leader by a little bit now," Berniard said. "I had an awesome time and I would rate my visit a nine on a scale of one to ten. I haven't visited the other schools that I'm considering yet. I'm also going to visit Tennessee and South Carolina before making a decision."

Berniard had a great unofficial visit from the beginning to the end. Not only did he take in a great game but he got the opportunity to meet with several coaches and recruits.

"I liked everything about my trip," he said. I met with coach Bowden most of the morning and I also talked with most of the assistants. I felt like I could fit in at Florida State. I talked with Brett Gallimore, Courtney Abbott, and Drew Weatherford. Drew came up to me and told me that he heard I was going to block for him and that he heard good things about me. Drew and I talked about coming in for our official visits at the same time. We are going to both try to come in January 12-14."

Berniard, who prides himself on being a hard nosed player, should have no problem qualifying academically. Currently, he has a 3.0 grade point average and a score of 19 on the ACT.
