Intense Border War!

One of the top defensive players in the state of Georgia is object of an intense Border War between the Florida State Seminoles and the Georgia Bulldogs. The caught up with the 6-foot-0 and 220 pound four-star standout to find out who has the early advantage.

"My heart is still Tallahassee and it's close to home," Dan Foster of Blakely (GA.) Early Country said. "Florida State is on top of Georgia right now. I'm getting a lot of pressure so I would like to make a decision before the season starts."

Foster along with his family grew up big-Seminole fans. It also doesn't hurt the Seminole cause that his first cousin (Tay Cody) was a four-year starter for the Garnet & Gold. Throw it in the fact that Tallahassee is only 82 miles from his house compared to a 265 miles drive north to Athens; one would think it's a slam dunk for the Noles. Think again.

Last year, Florida State was hot after arguably the top player in the state of Georgia in defensive end Brandon Miller but fell short on signing day to the Dawgs. Miller took several unofficial visits to Tallahassee and his home was located only 63 miles from the Florida State campus. Also The Noles had a huge need at defensive end.

The Noles will have a huge battle on their hands. South Georgia has a lot of Bulldog support and the locals and coaches at Early County would love to see Foster wear the Red & Black.

"I'm probably going to take an unofficial up to Athens soon," Foster said.

The South Georgia standout would like to meet with Seminole head coach Bobby Bowden before the end of summer as well.

Despite the intense pressure Foster is remaining focused on his summer workouts. Over the course of the year, he has added 10 pounds of muscle and he's now weighing in at a stout 220 pounds.

Foster still needs a slight improvement on his test score to qualify academically.
