Hart to Look Around

Four-star offensive tackle Bobby Hart, from Ft. Lauderdale (FL) St. Thomas Aquinas, is opening up his recruitment. The 6-5, 298-pound Hart said he is still committed to FSU but he will explore some other options in the coming months leading up to National Signing Day.

"It is just to make sure I made the right decision. I'm still committed but I need to know FSU is the right place for me."

Bobby Hart isn't opening his recruitment up to everyone, however. He has three schools aside from FSU that are in the running for his services.

"I'm looking at UF, Alabama, Georgia and then FSU obviously. I've been talking to coach (Bobby) Williams from Alabama and he told me to make sure I make the right decision. I talk to him the most probably. Then I've been talking to coach (Zach) Azzanni from Florida and we just talk about life mostly and how college will be. I haven't heard from Georgia coaches in a while so I'll have to see if I hear from them soon."

Hart committed in the summer of 2010 with fellow St. Thomas teammate Rashad Greene. Greene will also open up his recruitment and check out some other schools.

"I think Rashad had the same idea as me. He just wants to make sure FSU is the right place. We just want to make sure we are doing what we need to do for our futures."

Hart plans to take four visits in January to the schools he's interested in. He wants to make sure they are close together so he can compare each one back to back.

"I will line them up and do four in a row before signing day. Then, if I do change my decision, it will happen right around signing day."

FSU coaches are confident they can hang on to Hart, however. Hart said they know he is still committed and they aren't worried about his decision to open things up at this stage in the game.

"They told me they are confident that they can keep me. They said they know FSU is the right place for me and they just need me to know that so they are fine with me looking around. No one got mad about it so that was good."

In the meantime, Hart said he will focus on school work and football. He said he had a 3.6 GPA this past quarter and is preparing to head into the playoffs with his St. Thomas Aquinas team.
