Four-star commit considers visits

Christo Kourtzidis said he's almost certain committing to Florida State was the right move but the Orange (Calif.) Lutheran tight end will take some official visits after the season just to make sure.
"I'm going to take other officials just to solidify things and maybe get some other information but for now it's pretty solid," Kourtzidis said. "It will all be after the season because we have business to take care of here."
Kourtzidis, a four-star prospect, said Cal will probably get one of those official visits but he doesn't know of any others since recruiting has been fairly low key for him so far this fall.
Rated as the fifth-best tight end, No. 185 in the 2012 class and No. 34 in the California state rankings by Rivals.com, Kourtzidis committed to Florida State in June and said things are going well with the Seminoles but that he wants as much information as possible throughout the recruiting process.
Last weekend at the Mission Viejo Kickoff Classic, Kourtzidis talked about his possible future in Tallahassee.
"I'll mostly have my hand down I'm sure because Nick O'Leary is another guy they have there and he's obviously a little shorter and more of an athlete probably," Kourtzidis said. "I'll be more of a hand in the dirt kind of guy.
"It was really important to get out there this summer. I didn't want to make a decision without enough information so I was really glad I could get out there a couple times and really make sure that's what I wanted to do."
After a couple early drops in Orange Lutheran's 42-7 victory over South Jordan (Utah) Bingham last weekend, Kourtzidis settled in and played well in his team's season opener.
He's a big target with great hands who can play all over the field and Kourtzidis said he's ready to lead his team to a big season.
"It was definitely nerves early on," he said. "It was the first game and I obviously came out with a lot of tension. I personally believe I had a sub-par season last year so I wanted to get out and get off to a good start and the nerves kind of got to me but I picked it up later.
"I think I left a lot on the field last year and our team left a lot on the field. There was more to be desired and we wanted to come out and take care of that."
