Miami DB Talks About His FSU Offer

Recently, Florida State received some film of a Miami Gulliver Prep free-safety prospect and it didn't take long before the Noles extended the 6-foot-4 and 215 pound standout an offer.

"I just found out today from Coach Butler that Florida State offered," Anthony Leon said. "One of their coaches is supposed to call tonight. I'm looking forward to visiting Florida State."

The South Miami standout hasn't played football since his freshman year in Atlanta.

"I played varsity football as a freshman at Marietta high school but I took the last two years off to play basketball," he said. "I was born in Miami but we moved to Atlanta because of Hurricane Andrew. We moved back to Florida during my sophomore year."

As a junior Leon was selected to the 2nd team All-Dade by averaging 16 points and six rebounds per game.

Despite being a standout on the hardwood, the Gulliver Prep's future probably is on the gridiron.

"I feel I'm a different breed because of my athletic-ability and my size," he said. "A lot of people compare me to my second cousin Sean Taylor."

Right now Leon has a top three of Miami, Florida State and Tennessee.

"Miami was my favorite team growing up and they are close to home, "he said. "Florida State looks a lot better this year. They are athletic and they have a lot of speed."

Leon plans on making all his visits before making a decision.

In three games played as a senior, he has recorded 15 tackles and two interceptions.
