Noles Offer Virginia Tech Commitment

This evening Florida State offered and visited one of the top performers in the California-Florida All-Star game. Where do the Noles stand with the 6-foot-4 and 254 pound defensive tackle standout?

"Coach Bobby Bowden visited me at my home tonight along with Coach Haggins and Sexton," Virginia Tech commitment Bud Thacker said. "They offered me tonight and they want me to visit. However, the next time they call I'll probably tell them no. I'm 99.9 % sure that I will stick with Virginia Tech."

What does the Sanford (Fla.) Seminole standout like about the Hokies?

I really like how defensive coordinator Bud Foster gets after it," he said.

Thacker has some nice things to say about the Seminoles as well.

"I was at the Orange Bowl and I was very impressed with Florida State's defense," he said. "They really got after it."

Thacker was a standout during the recent Florida-California All-Star game.

"I had my best game of the year," he said. "I had seven tackles and three sacks in only two quarters."
