Bellamy still looking after FSU visit?

Davin Bellamy committed to FSU back in August, but there has made it known that he was starting to look around a little more in recent weeks. He visited FSU officially this weekend, so did anything change?

"I would say my commitment to Florida State is really strong after this weekend," Davin Bellamy told Scout. "I had some doubt going into the visit, but after meeting with Jimbo Fisher and Sal Sunseri, my questions were answered. I know where I stand with the new coaches and I feel good about FSU."

Bellamy will still visit Tennessee next weekend and then Georgia the following weekend though.

"I do not want to leave any stones unturned, so I will be taking my scheduled visits. I will spend 48 hours at Tennessee next weekend, then Georgia after that, so those 48 hours will be very important.

"My first official visit went very well and I am feeling good about Florida State, but I still have a tough decision. I have to see those other schools."

If the Vols or Bulldogs are going to get the four-star defensive end out of Chamblee, Ga. away from the Seminoles, they will have to really change his heart.

"I have always loved FSU since I first got down there. I love the atmosphere, I love the people, and when I saw Jimbo Fisher's face after telling him that I was still going to take my other two visits, I know they love me.

"I know Georgia and Tennessee are great schools, they are both recruiting me hard, and I want to give them a good look. I do feel good about my commitment to FSU though."

The new coaches on the FSU staff made Bellamy feel like he was special.

"I knew some of the new coaches because they recruited me when they were at their former school. They all told me they couldn't get me at their school, so they decided to come join me at FSU," said a laughing Bellamy.

"They told me that my skillset was different, how I was the type of end they needed at FSU, and how they did not have one that plays the way I do there now.

"I could tell when looking at them that they really want me there."
