Leggett visits FSU, has one on top

Navarre (Fla.) athlete Jordan Leggett traveled to Florida State on Saturday for the junior day event held by the Seminoles.
"I liked everything about it," Leggett said. "They basically rolled out the red carpet. Eating in the president's box and what not. They met with each player individually and talked to them one-on-one. I liked everything about it."
During the visit, the 6-foot-6, 220-pound prospect met with tight ends coach James Coley.
"He talked to me and we did the position meeting," Leggett said. "We talked about everything they would need me for.
"He said he liked everything about my film but he still thinks I am more of a hybrid player, that I can play the slot and tight end," Leggett added. "They just need to get me bigger and what not."
At this stage, Florida State has not offered Leggett. They are interested in continuing to recruit him though and have hopes that he will return to campus in the coming months.
"They want me to come to the camp they are having," Leggett said. "Coach Trickett also told me he wants me to come back up for a Saturday practice (during the spring) to get more one-on-one time with the coaches. It is just a matter of getting back up here."
Leggett has previously visited Florida and South Florida this spring. He is heading to Clemson next weekend. He talked a bit about each of the schools he has seen and the one he is about to see.
"Florida State was the best so far," Leggett said. "South Florida they didn't really pay a lot of attention to the players. I didn't like that. Florida I liked a lot because they had one person show you around the whole school. So far though I like Florida State the best."
"I am looking forward to Clemson," Leggett added. "I just want to meet with the team. I want to see how the school works. I want to see the stadium. I want to touch the rock (Howard's rock). I have a feeling it is going to be a great experience. I also want to meet all of the coaches."
Clemson and South Florida are the only offers for Leggett so far. At this point, one of those schools is in the lead.
"So far at the top is Clemson," Leggett said.
When asked if another school was right there with Clemson, Leggett said that isn't the case.
"Not close," Leggett said of the competition.
The Sunshine State prospect is hoping to make a decision before August.
"I am going to try to commit before my senior year, before it starts," Leggett said.
At this stage, Leggett said the primary position that most schools are looking at him for is tight end.
