When you're a five-star like Plantation (Fla.) American Heritage cornerback Tarvarus McFadden, you're expected to get heavy interest from the top schools in the country. So it should come as no surprise when he says that the defending national champions are the school pushing him the hardest right now.
"Florida State has been talking to me the most," said McFadden, the nation's No. 18 overall player. "They just want me to visit their school and they've been telling me how I would fit into their defense."
McFadden was invited to campus this weekend, but had to skip the trip because of a 7-on-7 tournament. He said that just because he missed this trip, doesn't mean he won't be in Tallahassee again soon.
"I'm going to try to get up there in a couple of weeks," he said. "I knew there was another one coming up and I had a tournament with my team, so missing it wasn't that big of a deal."
When it comes to his options, McFadden said potentially committing to the defending national champions is great, but he's more concerned about future playing time and his own ability to win titles.
"Every year, Florida State has a pretty good program so I won't count them out," McFadden said. "I guess you could say them winning a national championship gives them an advantage over everyone, but I don't really look at it like that. I just look at it like where am I going to have the best opportunity to play and whether or not they'll have the opportunity to win championships by the time I get there."
As far as making a decision, McFadden said he plans on picking a school that will let him on the field early. He also said that he doesn't think that will exactly narrow it down much
"I'm 6-foot-3 and I play corner, so I'm pretty sure I can play at any program," McFadden said. "That's my goal, to play early."
After his Florida State visit McFadden said he's not sure where his next trip will take him.
"I don't really know right now," he said. "I'm not ready to lay it all out yet."
