Surrency still listening

Corey Surrency says he will be apart of the return to glory of the Florida State Seminole football program.

However, the wide receiver said he is still listening to the LSU Tigers.

A commitment for Bobby Bowden's staff, the 6-5, 210-pound Surrency is a four-star prospect according to the latest rankings. The El Camino Community College product is also rated as the nation's 8th-best overall player.

"I'm going to be a Florida State Seminole," Surrency said. "Despite that I am still hearing from a pair of schools in West Virginia and LSU. They are really after me hard right now. You still listening to what they are saying; you are not rude to them or anything, particularly LSU.

"I still am listening to what they (LSU) are saying. They send a lot of their receivers to the NFL and a lot of people are telling me LSU, LSU, LSU. Don't forget about LSU and listen to what they are saying. I talk to (LSU senior wide receiver) Early Doucet all the time. We talk football and he is not forcing me to come to LSU or anything like that, but he does bring up some of the things that I could do at LSU and why it would be a good place for me to go."

One thing that Surrency said could precipitate him leaving Tallahassee is the departure of Offensive Coordinator Jimbo Fisher. The former LSU signal caller who now leads the FSU offensive attack has been mentioned as a possible replacement and multiple schools that have head coach openings.

"We haven't really talked about that," Surrency said. "To be honest I have not really thought about that. A reporter called me a while back and asked me that question and it made me start to think about that.

"I am coming to Florida State because of Jimbo Fisher. I am not going to be there if he is not there. It would be a waste of my time to go there if he is not there."
