When will Greenlee Firm Things Up?

Florida State's first verbal commitment of the class of 2006 became soft in a hurry. The 6-foot-5 and 300 pound standout from Columbus (GA) has visited several other programs since his commitment. Last weekend, he was supposed to visit the Gators for their Friday Night Lights camp. What's the latest?

"I was supposed to attend the Florida camp but I was at a family reunion in Tampa, Antwane Greenlee said. "The plan was to rent a car down in Tampa and ride up to Gainesville but some of my relatives wanted me to stay. I only see them once every two years."

What's up next for the Seminole soft commitment?

"I can't make it to LSU but I plan on going up to Tennessee to see their school on August 4th," he said. "Our school starts on 7th so I won't be able to visit any more schools."

Greenlee has stated in past interviews that he would like to switch from a soft commitment to a firm one before his season started.

"I want the recruiting process to end by September 1st, so I don't have to worry about recruiting during my season," he said. "I'm probably not going to change my commitment to another school and I'll pick Florida State. I like Georgia a lot but I feel Tallahassee is a better fit for me. If I wasn't going to stay with Florida State, it would be Georgia. I'm going to have to talk with my mother about it and pray."

There's been a rumor that the Peach State standout was going to switch his commitment from the Noles to the Dawgs because of the number of trips up to Athens.

"Yes, I've been up to Georgia like five times this year," he said. "It's because it's the home state school and a lot people that live around me go there so I will catch rides with them when they head up. I plan on visiting a lot of games this year because I'm a college football fan. One game I want to see is the Florida –Florida State game."

Greenlee likes both depth charts at both schools and he hopes to get a jump start in college.

"From what I understand, Georgia needs tackles real badly," he said. "Florida State had like 13 scholarship offensive lineman last year and they promised me a chance to compete but not start. That's all I can ask for. I plan to enroll early so I can jet a jump on the players in my class."
