Five-Star DE Visits FSU

Last Saturday evening Scout.com No.1 rated defensive end flew across the country to take his official visit to Florida State. How did it go?


"It was what I expected," Averell Spicer of Rancho Cucamonga (CA) said. "The whole program is great. It was probably my best official visit yet. I would rate it a nine.

Spicer met the entire coaching staff and got to hang out with two Californian's in Travis Johnson and Dominic Robinson.

The five-star prospect will also officially visit Southern Cal on (1/7) and Oregon State. He has also officially visited Nebraska and Oklahoma.

"It will probably come down to either USC or Florida State," he said. "I'll select a school where I feel the most comfortable. Distance won't be a factor with my family. A decision will probably come in January."

As a senior, Spicer recorded 71 tackles and six sacks.

"Most schools ran away from me," he said.

Spicer will play in the Florida/California All-Star game on January 15th in the Orange Bowl.

He was nominated for the Army All-American game but wasn't selected to participate.
