Anthony Rabasa is one of the many S. Florida recruits Florida State is targeting for the 2011 class. Last weekend the Columbus standout was in town for the Seminoles' first Junior Day of 2011. Rabasa told NoleDigest that he came away impressed with what he saw.
"The visit was great and it was really fun," said Rabasa. "I wouldn't say I was expecting anything but the visit kind of blew me away. With this being my first visit I had no idea what it was like. I liked everything about it. I liked the school itself and I like the coaches."
Anthony spent some time with first year FSU defensive end coach Darin Eliot. Rabasa said he clicked well with the new coach and feel like his young age makes it easier to relate to.
"I met and spent some time with Coach Eliot when I was there," explained Rabasa. "He is a great guy and I can tell he knows what he is doing, He is younger so I think that makes it easier for him to connect with the kids our age. I like that."
Like all of the recruits that attended the event Rabasa says he was impressed with the direction Coach Fisher has the Seminole program heading.
"Coach Fisher is a great guy and I think he is going to be a great head coach," Rabasa said of meeting FSU's new head man. "He brings a lot to his players and there is a lot of new stuff going on there. You can see the direction of the program is going the right way."
The visit paid off for Anthony as his interest in the Seminoles grew coming out of the weekend. He is planning on making the trip back up to FSU this weekend for another Junior Day visit.
"The coaches were great and it was cool meeting them," Rabasa said, "and the visit itself makes me more interested in them. I am going back up there this weekend with a few others and their parents. I am planning on looking at some other schools and see what happens with the process, but there is a lot to be interested in with FSU."
Rabasa says that at this time he doesn't have any other visits planned other than checking out some of Miami's spring practices since the school is close to his house.
