Bryn Mawr (Pa.) Harriton defensive tackle Callahan Bright has been a tough man to get ahold of these days. However, he took some time out of his schedule to talk about his trip to Florida State, his upcoming trip to Texas A&M and his leaders.
"The Florida State visit was great," said the 6-foot-2, 315-pounder who is ranked as the No. 5 player in the country. "I was hosted by Andre Fluellen and met with coach Bowden and everyone. They always have NFL prospects on the defensive line, so there's a good chance to go to the league from there. I also loved the weather. I originally wanted to play down in Florida or at least in warm weather, so that's a good fit."
However, Bright doesn't list FSU as his leader.
"That wouldn't be fair to the teams I still need to visit and I also really liked Purdue," he said. "I consider FSU and Purdue even. Purdue is a place where I could probably start right away and the chance to play with my brother (Eugene) would be cool."
Next up for Bright is Texas A&M this weekend.
"I like the coaches there and they way they use their linemen," he said. "I've always been high on them."
West Virginia's visit has been moved up to Jan. 14 now that he's not playing in the US Army All-American Game. If he takes a fifth visit, it could be down south again.
"Florida would probably be the team," he said. "But I don't know if I'll need five. I really wanted to visit Southern Cal a couple weekends ago but they called and told me not to come. That kind of surprised me."
Bright admitted that he thought about committing to FSU on his visit, but he and his coach and mother decided it would be best to compare a few more places to FSU and Purdue. He doesn't know when or how he'll make his announcement.
