Schools want Bodkin to camp

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Marianna (Fla.) three-star offensive tackle Ander Bodkin camped at Florida State on Wednesday.
"It was a good experience," Bodkin said. "I wanted to come out here and show where I am at now. I also wanted to do some work with the coaches and see what I had forgotten. I just wanted to work on the stance that they do. I caught on to it and thought I did pretty well throughout."
The 6-foot-5, 276-pound offensive lineman wasn't able to catch up with Florida State offensive line coach Rick Trickett after the camp, but his coach spoke to the Seminole assistant.
"My coach talked to him," Bodkin said. "I am going to talk to him about what he heard from Coach Trickett.
"I want to talk to him at some point soon and see where I stand with him," Bodkin added.
Bodkin, who has reshaped his body over the past year after dropping around 50 pounds, has offers from Florida Atlantic, Florida International, Jacksonville, Kentucky, Marshall, and South Florida.
He is hoping his effort at camps this summer will help that list to expand. Florida State was the first of a few planned stops over the next several weeks.
"I am going to Alabama on the 16th and Auburn at some point in July," Bodkin said. "I will also see Georgia and South Carolina pretty soon."
The Sunshine State prospect is receiving the same message from all of those schools.
"They want to see me at camp and make a decision from there," Bodkin said.
At this point in the process, nobody is really standing out to Bodkin.
"I have to go through every college and see what is unique about them and what they have to offer," Bodkin said. "I don't have a leader."
He hopes to figure out his future home by the time he takes the field for his first game as a senior.
"I want to decide by the end of the summer," Bodkin said.
Prior to attending Marianna, Bodkin played at Tallahassee (Fla.) Lincoln.
