Harrell feels the love at FSU

Harrell feels the love at FSU

T.J. Harrell visited Florida State for the first time a few weeks ago and decided to make a return trip for the spring game last Saturday. The 2014 athlete is being recruited by FSU as a running back and he had a great time getting to know the coaches and players a little bit better. Harrell breaks it down right here.

"It was nice, even better than the first time I went because I got to show one of my homeboys around, I got to see some people that I met the first time and got even more familiar with the coaches, it was even better. I actually got to see the boys in action this time, it was nice," T.J. Harrell said about his day at Florida State.

The Tampa Catholic (Tampa, FL) standout had a great time connecting with coaches and players in Tallahassee, but he was also quite impressed with the intensity of the spring game.

"I liked the way it was run, they really got after it, they really didn't hold anything back other than hitting the quarterback," he said.

"Overall, there were people going across the middle getting lit up, a lot of hype. The intensity of the game was something I liked."

The 6-foot, 180-pound athlete also enjoyed his conversations with Jimbo Fischer and Jay Graham.

"I mostly talked to Coach Jimbo and my running backs coach, Coach Graham a lot. They just mostly talked about how much they really want me and how much they need some running backs to come in," Harrell said.

"We talked about if I went there, what it would be like."

Harrell is certainly feeling the love at Florida State, but he has said from the beginning he'll be taking his time with this decision and he intends to keep it that way for now.

"I actually am (really liking FSU), but like I said, I'm going to like a school if I visit because they're going to show me that kind of love. I didn't pull the trigger or anything like that, because I want to go to some other schools and see my options," he said.

"It's still going to be a long (process)."

With spring football just around the corner, Harrell doesn't plan to visit any schools until summertime because he's expecting many coaches to be checking him out at practice. He's expecting a lot of coaches to stop by from programs including Florida, Florida State, Michigan State, Michigan, West Virginia, Tennessee, Indiana, Clemson, Alabama, Notre Dame, Oregon, Oregon State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Louisville, and Vanderbilt.
