Carver-Columbus' Fortson Still AU Bound?

Report surfaces Monday night that the talented athlete's recruitment may have taken a new twist.

According to a report that surfaced Monday night on the Internet, Carver-Columbus star Jarmon Fortson's decision between Auburn and Florida State just may have gotten a little bit easier.

According to the report, Fortson, who has been committed to the Tigers since last year, is having a hard time choosing between honoring his commitment with Auburn or switching to the Seminoles.

The report indicates that because of his uncertainty, a source for Auburn has said that the Tigers are no longer actively recruiting the four-star prospect.

Whether or not that is true remains to be seen as Fortson did not immediately return a phone call.

After committing to Auburn with high school teammate DeRon Furr last year, the two have gone in opposite directions.

While Furr is now officially enrolled at Auburn, it appears as though they won't be playing together again anytime soon.

The Seminoles entered the picture with Fortson late last year and offensive coordinator Jimbo Fisher and wide receivers coach Lawrence Dawsey have been tireless in their efforts to lure the 6-foot-3 playmaker.

And from many indications it has worked as Fortson has not only taken an official visit to Tallahassee in the past month but he has also taken two unofficial visits to see FSU basketball games as well.

In fact, just this past weekend Fortson took a trip to Tallahassee to see the Seminoles host North Carolina with AAU teammate Xavier Gibson.

Gibson is committed to the FSU basketball team.

Whether or not the report is accurate may or may not ever be known but one thing is certain: come Wednesday, either Auburn or Florida State will officially get the solid commitment from one of the Peach State's most talented high school football players.
