Florida State Offers to Powell

At the end of last week, Tydreke Powell added yet another ACC schools to his list of scholarship offers.

"Florida State offered Friday," said Powell. "I haven't talked to them; they just came out of nowhere."

Powell, a 6-foot-4 283-pound defensive end from Ahoskie (N.C.) Hertford County, hasn't been fazed much by the Seminole offer still claming boyhood favorite North Carolina as his leader.

"[North] Carolina is still on top," said Powell. "I haven't been on any [other] visits, but Carolina. Once I start going to other schools it might be a little different."

Sunday Powell will head to East Carolina for the Pirates' junior day, and then visit UNC again for their junior day on March 4th. Originally Powell had hoped to attend N.C. State's junior day on February 25th, but his basketball schedule prevented that trip.

In addition to FSU, Powell owns offers from East Carolina, North Carolina, N.C. State, Virginia, and Virginia Tech.
