Did the Noles Make the Cut?

One of the top running backs in the entire country grew up a Seminole fan. Did the Noles make the latest cut for the 5-foot-10 and 185 pound five-star standout from Lake Butler (Fla.) Union County?

"I've narrowed down my list to four schools in USC, Florida State, Miami and Florida," C.J. Spiller said. "Those were the four programs that I felt the most comfortable."

All four programs have already stopped by his living room to make a pitch to their respective schools. What is each school telling the Army All-American?

USC- "They are losing two running backs to the NFL and the starting job will be up for grab and it will be an even playing field."

FSU- "They told me that Lorenzo Booker was coming back for his senior year and that I could be a part of their three back rotations. I also would get the opportunity to start on punt returns."

UF- "I read in the paper that Wynn might be going pro and they probably will only have two to three backs on their roster. They told me that I'm number one on their board. I think they are recruiting a back from Hargrave."

Miami- "They have one running back commitment and they want to take one more back. They want me to come in and help them get back on top."

Florida State was the first program to offer Spiller way back during his sophomore season.

"It's going to be a tough decision but I would say that I trust the Florida State coaches the most," he said. "I've known them the longest which will be a major factor. I hear they are recruiting some pretty good offensive lineman. Drew Weatherford did pretty well for a freshman when he had the time to throw."

Spiller will participate in the Florida/Cali and Army American All-Stars games.

He will visit Florida State on January 27th and he'll make his decision on National Signing Day.
