TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Homestead (Fla.) wide receiver Herb Waters, who committed to the University of Miami about two weeks ago, made his way to Florida State this week to participate in the Jimbo Fisher Football Camp as well as visit the campus. Waters participated on Thursday.
"I worked out during one session," Waters said. "It was great. Coach (Lawrence) Dawsey is a great coach. He was real hands-on, teaching me some techniques, about getting to the ball, and creating separation from the cornerbacks. The competition level was great. I loved it."
On and off the field, the 6-foot-1, 170-pound wide receiver was a focal point for the Seminoles' staff.
"They showed me a lot of real attention," Waters said. "It was a great experience getting closer to them as an individual and learning about their personalities. Everything was good."
Throughout his visit, Waters had numerous conversations with Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher.
"He just told me to not be pressured," Waters said. "He just said to stay focused and to go through the whole process. I have been telling him I will go through the whole process."
Since committing, Waters said he has heard from Florida State and North Carolina. He plans to utilize all of his official visits during the college football season.
"I plan to take officials," Waters said. "I want to come back up here to Florida State. I also will go to North Carolina, probably UCF, West Virginia, and maybe Louisville. I won't take one to Miami because they are right there."
With regards to his commitment to the Hurricanes, he shed some light on where it stands.
"Anything could happen from here to Signing Day, so I am keeping my options open even though I am committed to Miami," Waters said. "I am going to go through the whole recruiting process, but I am very firm to Coach (Al) Golden and Miami."
But to hear Waters explain why he opted to pledge his services to the hometown school, it sounds like anybody out to change his mind is fighting a major challenge.
"I knew I was going to do it before I even got the offer," Waters said. "Me and (teammate, linebacker) James Burgess, we sat down and talked about it and knew we both wanted to do it. That is our dream school coming up so if we had an opportunity to go there, why waste that opportunity? That is where we wanted to be. We made the decision to commit."
