Five-Star DB Gives Noles a Ten
"I rated it a ten," Avery Atkins of Daytona Beach (Fla.) said. "Everyone was cool and down to earth. The highlight of my trip was chillin with Antonio Cromartie. He wants me to join him in the defensive backfield."
Atkins, a Florida commitment, has been on the record that the Gators are a clear No.1 on his list. How much ground did the Seminoles make up?
"I would say it's 50/50 now," he said. "I really like Coach Andrews and Sexton. Florida State has a nice depth chart at cornerback."
Next weekend, the Gators entertain him on his official visit.
"The only in-home visit I got set up is for Wednesday with Florida State," he said. "Coach Haggins, Sexton and Andrews are coming over."
