Jacksonville Center Camps at FSU

Jacksonville (Fla.) Bolles is considered the home of the top center prospect in the state of Florida. Recently, the 6-foot-2 and 270 pound standout camped at both Florida State and Georgia. Where do the Noles stand?

"I liked the Florida State camp because I felt welcomed," Chance Raines said. "I learned a lot of new technique which also helps smaller lineman like me. I learned a lot more at Florida State than Georgia. The Georgia camp was more physical though."

The Noles are always looking for tough, smarter center prospects but Raines might have to wait a bit.

"Coach McHale told me that they have three slots left but they are waiting on some national players now," the First Coast standout said. "He said if I do get offered it probably would be in the fall. I hope they offer because I'm really excited about Florida State."

Right now the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets (offer) are the team to beat. Other schools to offer him are South Florida, Central Florida, Western Michigan, UAB, Middle Tennessee State and Rutgers.

"I'm in no hurry to commit and I want to take some official visits," he said.

Raines will be a three-year starter for Bolles in the fall.
