"I would probably say that Florida and Florida State are my two leaders," said Pupello. "I have always been a Florida fan. My dad (Joe) play offensive guard there and it has always been a Gator household. I even have a Gator license plate.

"Florida State has always been there with me and they were one of the first schools to offer me a scholarship where Florida just did about two weeks ago. I can get early playing time there and play for a legend like Bobby Bowden. I have lots of friends there and I feel comfortable there."

Pupello is schedule to visit the FSU/UF game this weekend but at this time he is still unsure if it will be an official or unofficial visit and he will not make that decision until later this week. He also is listing Clemson, Nebraska and LSU. All have offered.

"Clemson is a school that uses the tight end a lot and my cousin (Bobby Williamson) is the starting tight end for them right now.

"Nebraska and LSU are two teams that I like a lot but I am still kind of learning about them."
