Five-Star Came Close to Committing
"He was very excited and he came close to committing," Head Coach Harold Smith said about his All-American player in Callahan Bright. "He got along with the players and coaches very well. He likes Coach Bowden and Haggins a lot. The visit just clicked with him."
Next week, Bright will visit Texas A&M and then he will be close to making a decision.
"It will come down to Purdue, FSU and Texas A&M," Smith said. "I told him to go to Texas and then come home and discuss it with his mother."
Do any of the three schools have an advantage?
"He likes then all," Smith said. "He likes Purdue because his brother is there and he has had some good conversations with the Texas A& M coaches. He's looking to play in a warm-weather climate and that's what Florida State has."
Another factor helping the Seminole cause is that Bright's head coach is a Nole fan.
"I grew up a Seminole fan and I've been watching their defenses for years," Smith said. "I haven't been to any games to Florida State but if Callahan signs there, that will probably change."
