Daytona Beach Mainland OL Garrett Clark picked up a grayshirt offer from Florida State on Saturday when he and about 40 other prospects visited Tallahassee for the Seminoles' second junior day tour of the campus and facilities.
Also along for the trip was teammate DB Cortez Davis, while Orlando Dr. Phillips prospects DB Ha'sean Cinton Dix and RB Dee Hart were also in attendance.
Clark said he liked his visit and is definitely contemplating his grayshirt offer, but it's far too early in the recruiting process for him to make any sort of commitment.
"They said they want to offer me a grayshirt because the already have two inside guys and they need three tackles, but they said I am the next guy," Clark (6-5, 275) said. The Seminoles already have early 2011 commitments from three offensive linemen in DeLand's Trey Pettis (6-5, 290, tackle/guard), Pensacola Navarre's Sterling Lovelady (6-2, 280, center) and Davie Nova's Nile Lawrence-Stample (6-1, 299, tackle). Boone High's Max Lang (6-5, 280, tackle) also has an FSU offer.
"I definitely liked it up there," said Clark, who also attended Florida's junior day earlier this month. "They were both good trips. I kinda felt more of a family atmosphere at Florida State and they were really straight forward with me as far as what they wanted me to do. But as for both places, they were about the same."
Davis also enjoyed his trip to Tallahassee. Despite Davis' early commitment to Clemson, he says he's still open.
"I like everything about FSU," said Davis, who at 6-foot-5 is probably one of the tallest cornerbacks you will see. He's quite open, however, to switching to the offensive side of the ball. That's something he definitely liked about both FSU and Clemson.
"They both talked to me about that," said the 185-pound Davis. "I like it. I'd love to do it."
Numerous media sources late Saturday night were reporting that Davis had switched his Clemson commitment to Florida State. While he may very well have officially decommitted from Clemson, Davis told the Sentinel as of 7:30 Saturday night that he was wide open.
