Saunders will take visits

Florida State commitment Mavin Saunders committed to the Seminoles just a month ago, but says that he still wants to take a couple of trips. Which two Big Ten teams is he talking about visiting?

Mavin Saunders from Houston (Texas) Kinkaid considers himself a Florida State commitment. However, the 6-foot-5 and 240-pound tight end says that there are a couple of schools that he would like to still take official visits to this fall.

"I am still planning on taking some trips," Saunders said. "I am still committed to Florida State, but I would like to visit some schools. Well, really just two schools. I would like to visit Nebraska and Ohio State."

Taking the visits might be pending an interest from the schools though. Since committing Saunders says that things have gotten quiet. He knows that this is a popular time for college coaches to take their vacations and expect that the interest will pick back up again soon.

"Since committing to Florida State everything has quieted down a little bit. It's the summer though and I know that a lot of coaches take this time for vacation before the season starts.

"I haven't been in touch with Nebraska or Ohio State much since I committed, but when communication picks back up again I would like to set up those trips."

Saunders is an interesting story. He's only been in the country for five years, was really more of a prospect in another sport and has only played football for a year or so. He's holding college offers in multiple sports, but says he wants to play football.

"I have been in the United States for five years. I have only played organized football for a year. I came here from the Bahamas and played basketball originally.

"I do have some nice basketball offers, but I have decided that I want to play football. I really don't have any plans to play both sports in college."
