Are Noles Slipping with OL?

Tonight Coach Bobby Bowden made an in-home visit with one of state's offensive line prospects in the state. Did the Noles make progress with the 6-foot-6 and 310 pound standout from Delray Beach (Fla.) Atlantic?

"Coach Lilly, Haggins, McHale and the big-dog Bobby Bowden visited me today," Orlando Franklin said. "Coach Bowden is a good coach and a good guy. We talk about general stuff."

Was it enough to put the Noles in good shape?

"Actually, I'm thinking about eliminating Florida State," he said. "They aren't in my heart and I know have Florida and Miami in my top two. I got Miami this weekend and really liked my Florida visit."
