Debose may visit this weekend

Andre Debose

Florida wide receiver Andre Debose, who is taking the snaps behind center for Seminole High this season, remains one of the most sought after recruits in the nation. At 5'11", 176 pounds, Debose is what many would pin as the perfect mold for the spread offense and LSU coaches think he would fit in just fine in Baton Rouge.

On Friday night, Debose’s team dropped its first game of the season 34-13 to Spruce Creek.


The ever-elusive 5-star returned a kickoff 95 yards for a touchdown but Spruce Creek didn’t allow him to make big plays from his quarterback spot as he amassed only 132 yards rushing and passing, but did get into the endzone on an 11-yard run.


The next day Debose was in Tallahassee on a visit to Florida State and he has been keeping his eye on a number of college teams’ performances this season.

While the Seminoles fell victim in a 12-3 loss at home to Wake Forest, Debose said he made sure he got to see everyone else's big weekend.

"It was kind of a down atmosphere in Tallahassee after that," said Debose. "Some guys tried turning the Florida game on that day, but they turned it right off. I know they didn't want us seeing any of the Gator’ game going down."

Florida, who handled Tennessee with ease en route to a 30-6 victory, was not the only team that impressed.

"I recorded a bunch of games so I could see it all when I got home," Debose said. "I watched the whole LSU game against Auburn. It was pretty exciting. The offense looked good, and Charles Scott was a beast."

Debose, who is in talks with coach D.J. McCarthy about the possibility of coming into town this weekend for the Mississippi State game, said that a visit or two to Baton Rouge is imminent.

"I love it down there," Debose said. "I had a great time meeting everyone on the un-official this summer, so I know I am going to have to get back down there. I want to get down there this weekend and just be in a relaxed atmosphere, but we will see what happens. If not I will be down for a game or two, no doubt."

While the five-star is not putting any leaders out in front, the battle for his services is starting to take shape.

With visits to all of his top schools under his belt, including Gainesville and Miami, it is the Tigers and Gators who seem to continue to take the reigns with his recruitment in hopes of steering the nation's No. 5 wide receiver there way.

With more visits coming for Debose as quickly as the weeks come and go, the final picture in his process might be painted sooner than February 4th.
