"Big B" has big goals. And Florida State just might be part of them one day.

Remember the name Brandon Luther because he's hard to miss for a number of reasons. For openers, Luther stands 6-foot-7 and weighs 340 pounds. It goes without saying he's an imposing figure.

But that's not the best part.

Luther also is an enormously talented offensive tackle and student at Starke Bradford County High School. He mixes strength with quickness, desire with commitment.

"He's a drive blocker and he's quick on his feet," Bradford County head coach Roland Cummings said. "He's got a real strong work ethic. He hasn't missed a single workout his entire time in high school. He graded out 90 percent nine out of 10 times, (and) he has his man on the ground."

Of course, Luther leaves a large imprint on that ground, wearing size 18 shoes. Luther was a first-team all-state (Classd 3A) selection as a sophomore and junior. He has been clocked at 5.3 in the 40-yard dash, has maxed out at 350 pounds on the bench and features a solid 3.0 grade-point average.

FSU fans will be glard to hear Luther grew up rooting for the Seminoles. He plans to attend FSU's sumper camp. Additonally, Luther wants to take his visits this fall and commit early. Luther also says he's considering Florida and Miami.

Overall, Luther said he has received more than 300 letters from colleges around the country.

"I'm open but I don't want to go to far from home," Luther told TheTerritory. "Tennessee is probably the farthest North I would go. FSU has been my favorite. ... I want to go check out their facilities and meet the coaches."
