OL Prospect Wants to Know Position Coach

Miami (Fla.) South Miami is the home of an offensive line prospect with huge upside. Last week, the 6-foot-7 and 255 pound three-star standout visited Florida. The weekend before, the Seminoles hosted him on an official visit.

"I loved my Florida visit," offensive line prospect Simon Codrington said. "The campus is huge and the coaches are real nice and full of energy. The swamp is huge."

The week before he had an equally impressive visit with the Seminoles. However, there's one thing that bothers him about the Garnet & Gold.

"I feel same way about my Florida State visit but the one thing hindering them is not having an offensive line coach," he said. "I need to get to know the person who will be coaching me. I have been hearing that they were trying to get George Henshaw. Coach Bowden said that they were going to try and get the best offensive line coach they can."

On Monday night, Florida State linebacker coach Kevin Steele paid him an in-home visit.

He just talked about the school and things," he said. "He talked to my Grandfather for a while."

What factors will decide where he plays his college ball for the next four to five years of his life?

"Depth chart is important to me," he said. "I don't have to play right away but I don't want to have to come in right behind a freshman All-American either. It's also going come down to where I feel the most comfortable."

His father played college football for Eastern Kentucky. Does he have any advice for his son?

"He has taught me to keep an open mind," he said. "Over the summer, I went up to Florida State camp and I wanted to go there. He told me to look around first before making a decision."

Codrington will visit West Virginia this weekend before making a decision among Auburn, West Virginia, Florida State, Florida and North Carolina State.
