Hawthorne QB Will Visit FSU In Jan

At one time in the recruiting process, Hawthorne (Fla.) quarterback Cornelius Ingram was leaning towards Florida State. For the last month or so the Florida Gators have emerged as the favorite. Has that changed?

"Florida is still my leader," Ingram said. "Me and the Florida basketball coach have been friends since the 7th grade. I also like Ron Zook a lot also. They are both are so down to earth. Florida is the perfect situation for me. It only 15 minutes away from my home and it would be easy for my family to see me play."

Ingram will make his official visit to Florida the first week in January. The 6-foot-4 and 195 pound standout was supposed to make his official visit with the Noles this weekend but there's been a change of plans.

"I just got off the phone with Coach Jody Allen (FSU) and he would like for me to visit the second week in January," Ingram said. "He thought it would be better so I could meet some of the recruits on my visit."

Ingram will also make official visits to Georgia and Syracuse.

On Monday, Ingram got in-home visits from both Florida and Florida State.

"Both coaches showed up at the school at the same time but they came over to my house at separate times," he said. "Coach Dickey told me that I would get a chance to compete at quarterback."

Look for the Hawthorne quarterback to make a decision in late January.
