As if Florida State didn't have enough to worry about with Oklahoma coming to town. Not only are the Sooners looking to steal a precious road victory, but the Sooners football program is also trying to steal the Seminoles' biggest high school recruit — Denton Ryan's Mario Edwards Jr.
In this article by ESPN's Mitch Sherman, the nation's No. 1 recruit in the ESPNU 150 admits that, even though he committed to the Seminoles back in March, he believes he's earned the right to look at other schools, including Oklahoma. Despite his wandering eye, the senior defensive lineman still makes clear that Florida State is his number one school.
Edwards Jr., whose dad starred at Florida State, was scheduled to travel to Tallahassee for this Saturday's game between FSU and Oklahoma, but he recently cancelled because it's his high school's homecoming weekend. During the Raiders' 3-0 start, Edwards Jr. has racked up 5.5 sacks, 21 tackles, including 11 for loss, and two forced fumbles, pushing his team to No. 36 in the POWERADE FAB 50 and seventh in the state.
