FSU offers in-state DL

Jimbo Fisher delivered big news to one of the hottest prospects in the Sunshine State and he plans to visit Tallahassee soon.

Scout recently made a stop at Pasco High School to check on defensive lineman Joey Ivie and he has been one of the hottest prospects in Florida since.

He now has 12 scholarship offers and Florida State is the most recent school to pull the trigger.

"Coach [Jimbo] Fisher told me about the FSU offer and he offered me over the phone," Ivie said. "He said they would like for me to play inside and outside on the defensive line for them."

Ivie does not have a leader or any favorites at this time, but he does have interest in the Noles.

"If I had a list, FSU would be be near the top. I know they have won a National Championship and they have the potential to do it again, so I like that. I like their coaches and how they have put together some great recruiting classes.

The 6-foot-4, 269 pound defensive lineman plans to visit FSU this summer.

Miami, Mississippi State, South Florida, and Texas Tech are some of the other schools that have offered.
