South Florida Standout Talks About FSU

It's no secret that Miami Edison corner Chris Chancellor has an interest in Florida State football. See what else he has to say about the Seminoles in this update.

The spotlight, the attention he gets, even his voice mail message. They all reflect it.

Prime Time.

Like many another CB prospects, Miami Edison's Chris Chancellor lists former FSU and NFL great Deion Sanders as his favorite player. And though the Seminoles currently lead for his services at the next level, Chancellor has had his fair share of callers.

"Everyday there had been three or four coaches coming to practice," said Chancellor, who admits he's still searching for a No. 2 Sanders throwback.

"Today (Tuesday) UAB, Temple and USF were all out there. Chuck Amato from N.C. State stopped by the other day but he left before practice was over. Coach Steele has also been by."

Already offered by the Seminoles, Chancellor has been largely ignored by Miami. He has plans for Sept. 6.

"Miami has given me three tickets to their home games (in the past). This year I want to sit with FSU so I'm going to ask Coach Steele if I can get a ticket. I hope we can win this year."

Chancellor, who has 14 INTs combined in the last two seasons, said former teammate Jacky Claude will be doing some Tallahassee groundwork for him.

"He's already saying things….things like we could be roommates. He said he'd start talking with some of the guys about me and let me know how things were going up there. FSU has been my number one school ever since I was watching Deion and Peter Warrick as a kid."

Chancellor has the hard work in the classroom behind him. The senior to be has a 2.7 core GPA and a 16 on his ACT. Chancellor said he has just two core classes to take in his final year – American History and English. Electives will round out his schedule.

Wherever he ends up, Chancellor wants to keep track in mind, as well. The spring he ran the 100, 200, 4x100 relay and participated in the long jump for Edison.

"Track helps you keep your speed up in the offseason," he said.

Edison takes on Northwestern this Friday in a jamboree to wrap up spring drills.
