Florida offer on the way for Cordavien Suggs?

Cordavien Suggs has ten school on his mind. The three-star offensive tackle discusses the schools in the mix and where he stands in his recruitment. Are the Gators next the one to offer?

Cordavien Suggs has seen a lot of schools come through the doors of Duncan U. Fletcher High School this spring.

"It's been crazy," said the three-star offensive tackle.  "A lot of schools [have come through]. "Tennessee, Memphis, South Carolina, North Carolina, FAU, Auburn, Virginia Tech, Georgia Tech, Purdue, Miami, Florida, Georgia Southern, it's been a lot."


On Wednesday, Suggs released a top ten on twitter. His list includes: Florida, Mississippi State, Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, FAU, Memphis, Louisville, Georgia Tech and Washington State (in no order). 

"My top ten now is just based on the schools that are recruiting me the hardest," he said, "and I have the best relationships with."

That list can change and so could his list of offers. Right now his list of suitors includes: FAU, Memphis, Mississippi State, UNC, South Carolina, Georgia Tech, Louisville, Tennessee, Virginia Tech and Washington State among others. The Gators could be the next one to pull the trigger. UF assistants Tim Skipper and Mike Summers both have stopped by Suggs' high school this spring. 

"Both of them say they are interested in me and that I am a good player," he said. "Coach Summers said that I might get an offer some time next week."

How much would an offer from UF mean to him?  

"It would mean a lot thats why I put them in my top ten," he said. "I just know they are a good program and they can help me get to the next level. 

"Coach Summers and I have a good and close relationship," he added. "[Summers likes] my athleticism and my skill set."

According to Suggs, Miami and Auburn are also close to offering him. But these schools will have to compete with some programs that have offered and have been recruiting the offensive lineman hard. 

"Tennessee, FAU and Mississippi State are recruiting him the hardest," he said. "FAU is telling me I come in as a freshman and make a big impact. They really want me. Tennessee is telling me the same thing to that I can make an impact right away, Mississippi State, honestly they are all saying the same thing."

Suggs is planning to take plenty of visits this summer. 

"North Carolina, South Carolina, Auburn, Tennessee, Mississippi State, Louisville, and Memphis," he said. "I still I might take another visit to UF and FAU."

The tackle is looking for a few things in his perfect program. 

"A school that is a fit for me. I don't want to go somewhere that I'm out of place," he said. 

He plans to study sports management in college and he is looking closely at academics. 

"Georgia Tech thats one of the reasons they are in my top ten, because of their athletic program as well as  their academics."
