Erving Talks FSU Game and Visit

Cameron Erving was in town Monday night to watch Florida State's rivalry game against the Miami Hurricanes. NoleDigest caught up with the Seminole commitment to get his thoughts on the game and to talk a little bit about his decision to go public with his commitment.

While the game Monday night didn't unfold the way the Seminole nation wanted several recruits enjoyed the atmosphere at Doak and the energy the players had throughout the game. Cameron Erving, one of Florida State's most recent public commitments, said that while the loss was tough to watch he had a great time overall during his visit.

"It was a great game, but I thought we scored too quickly late and gave the ball back to Miami," said Erving of the game. "Miami had their scheme and stuck to it. Overall I thought it was a great time and I had a lot of fun."

"I have been there others times but the atmosphere at this game as great," continued Erving. "Everyone was into the game and that is something that I really like about FSU. The place was electric. The fans were great and I was getting hyped up listening to them."

The commitment of Erving came out of the blue for just about the entire Seminole nation. The Colquitt County standout said that he didn't really talk too much about the commitment early because he was focused on other things. Now that it is out Erving talked about it with NoleDigest.

"I liked everything that goes into FSU," Erving said, "so when they offered me in March of my junior year I decided to commit. I purposely didn't mean to keep the commitment on the DL; I just didn't go around talking about it so much. I mean, people in my home town knew about it. It started to get it out so I just put it out there. When they initially offered me they got film from my coach. He knows a lot of people and has some good connections. He put it together for me, and FSU said they liked what they saw and decided to offer me."

Erving will be coming to FSU to play defensive tackle for the Seminoles. He said he is a multi-dimensional defensive lineman who can rush the passer as well as stop the run.

"I'd say right now I am a better pass rusher, but I can stop the run, too," explained Erving. "A lot of teams will run at me early on but they usually end up running sweeps away from me. Also I usually get double and triple teamed. We have good defensive ends so they are capable of keeping stuff inside where I can make a play."

Cameron says he likes what Coach Haggins is as a coach and that he is anxious to play for him on the next level.

"I didn't get a chance to talk to Coach Haggins much during the dead period but I got the chance to talk to him for before warm-ups at the game," said Erving. "So far we have a good relationship. I liked how he warmed up his players and got them ready for a game."

Cameron says that other schools are starting to recruit him but he is pretty set on his decision. Stay tuned to NoleDigest for further updates with Cameron, as well as the rest of the recruits from the 2009 recruiting class.
