Many people expect Tallahassee (Fla.) Leon quarterback Wyatt Sexton to end up at Florida State because his father is an assistant coach there. But somebody forgot to tell that to Sexton.
The 6-foot-3, 185-pound pro-style quarterback lists Illinois, North Carolina, Florida State, Michigan, USC, Duke, North Carolina, Georgia and Auburn as his top teams. He has scholarship offers from Illinois, UNC and FSU.
"A few of them called this weekend," Sexton, who threw for three touchdowns and 200 yards in the season opener against Rickards, said.
"I just talked to my dad about Florida State really for the first time in a while. Duke, UNC, Auburn and Georgia all called. I'm expecting and hoping to still hear from Michigan and USC sometime soon."
Sexton said despite the family ties that he's pretty open and will go through the recruiting process.
"I'm not a lock to Florida State like some might think," he said.
"That's one of the first questions coaches ask me. I'm just having fun with the process. I'm still open. I might be leaning toward Florida State a little bit because it's my roots, but I'm going to take visits and be open and fair with the process."
