Telfort Returns From "South Florida Express"

Miami Gulliver star athlete Frankie Telfort has returned from his five day swing on the Brett Goetz sponsored "South Florida Express" bus tour. Telfort visited Clemson, South Carolina, Tennessee, Florida, Florida State and South Florida during that span. Bill Greene has the latest on Telfort's tour.

Miami Gulliver star Frankie Telfort just completed a tour of six schools on the "South Florida Express" bus tour sponsored by Miami businessman Brett Goetz. Telfort, along with several other Miami area players, visited Clemson, South Carolina, Tennessee, Florida, Florida State and South Florida in a period of five days.

"The trip went really well, but it was long," Telfort reported. "I'll be glad to get back home. I enjoyed competing on the field and getting to meet all the coaches. The trip was very informative as I try to plan to narrow down my list of five top schools. I hope to get that done later this summer and then I'll set up my visits."

Telfort, who has been offered by over thirty schools, including all of the schools he visited, was impressed by all the schools he saw on the tour.

"I liked every one of the schools to be honest," he stated. "Clemson was a great campus and we saw their players working out in the weight room. They have some impressive looking players. I've been to Florida before but it was nice seeing the new facilities. I hadn't seen them before. Florida was very nice. I also liked Tennessee a lot. I talked with some people about their pharmacy school. I learned what that program is all about from some people that have been through the program. Getting into that field is very important to me and any school's pharmacy program will have an effect on my final choice."

Telfort, who will play in the U.S. Army All-American game in January, plans on making his decision around the time of the all star game.

"This trip was good because I now have a good knowledge of what to look for in a school," he said. "I've got a lot of thinking to do before I can start to set up official visits in the fall. I'm going to take my time and do this the right way. I still have a lot of schools that I'm considering right now."
