DB has FSU offer, camped at Miami

This talented cornerback prospect has a nice list of offers, which includes Florida State, and he camped at Miami a couple weeks ago. Read on to see what he's saying about the camp, his interest in Miami, and more.

Kendall Sawyer is one of the top players in Southwest Florida this year. At 6-feet and 180 pounds, Sawyer plays on both sides of the ball at East Lee County High but projects best as a cornerback. He talked about the latest with recruiting.

"My top three favorites right now are Florida State, Ole Miss, and South Florida," Sawyer said. "They've all offered me."

Sawyer was recruited by Miami in the spring, and was invited to participate in camp a few weeks ago.

"At UM, I've talked to Micheal Barrow and Larry Scott but not a whole lot," he said. "When I was at the camp a couple weeks ago they made me run a couple routes. They put me at receiver, running back, and cornerback. I felt most comfortable at cornerback."

While Sawyer wasn't able to earn an offer from the Hurricanes, his interest in Miami would likely change for the better if that were to happen. For now, he is a lot more focused on another in-state program.

"I'm going to FSU on the 17th," he said. "Hopefully it'll push me stronger towards FSU."

The standout defensive back talked about his relationship with the FSU coaches.

"I talk to Jeremy Pruitt -- he emails my parents. It's a good school. I played in a 7-7 tournament in Tallahassee about two months ago, right before summer."

Until then, Sawyer is totally focused on his senior season. He's excited about the challenge ahead.

"We got the hardest schedule in the county," he said. "We have to play Cocoa Beach, which was a state championship team in 2010. We have to play Plantation American Heritage, who has one of the best running backs in the 2014 class in Sony Michel. South Fort Myers, which was produced Sammy Watkins, I had the chance to guard him my freshman year."

Sawyer will be up for the challenge, and you can be sure Miami will be following him closely.
