Will Five-Star DB Visit FSU this Weekend?
"I don't know," Avery Atkins said. "I'm pretty set on Florida. It would take a whole lot to overtake them."
Atkins' former high school teammate is Seminole starting middle linebacker Buster Davis. Over the Christmas break they had a chance to talk.
"Buster told me that Florida State is a nice place and that I needed to check it out before I made my final decision," he said. "If I go, Xavier Lee or Buster will be my host."
What does he like about Florida?
"I really like Coach Strong and Meyer," he said. "My whole family is Gator fans. Plus, it's close to home."
Through nine games as a senior, he had seven interceptions (three returned for touchdowns).
Atkins will make his decision on Signing Day; live on Fox Sports Net South's Countdown to Signing Day. The show airs from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. eastern time.
