TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Plantation (Fla.) cornerback Sojourn Shelton has enjoyed his two days in Tallahassee at the Jimbo Fisher Football Camp. The talented defensive back from South Florida has looked forward to the event for months.
"I just came up here to get better and learn better technique," Shelton said. "In high school, everything isn't on the level of college. So when you come to Florida State and working with Coach (Mark) Stoops and Coach (Terrell) Buckley you learn a lot. You can't go wrong with them. Both guys have taught me a lot. Coach Buckley was in the league for years and Coach Stoops is very experienced, knows everything, he is a great defensive coordinator. They just know what to teach you."
The 5-foot-10, 155-pound defensive back said he has been speaking with Eddie Gran, his primary recruiter, about the possibility of an offer.
"He told me that by the end of the week an offer may be on the table," Shelton said. "You probably heard I got verbally offered, but by the end of the week I should know for sure."
According to Shelton, if Gran and the Seminoles make the offer official, he will have immediate news for the Garnet and Gold.
"If they make it official, I plan to commit," Shelton said. "I love it here. Growing up in South Florida it is either Miami or Florida State, and I grew up as a Florida State fan. I have a lot of family up here, a lot of cousins. I just love it up here."
In addition to interest from Florida State, Shelton has also regularly heard from LSU, Miami, Ohio State, and Wisconsin.
