All-American OL commits to FSU on national TV first reported last week that USA Today first team All-American Chris Little was ready to make a commitment to Florida State. He decided to wait to announce his commitment so he could do it on national television, which he did Saturday afternoon.
During the Army All-American Bowl on NBC, the 6-foot-5, 342-pound tackle went public with his commitment to the Seminoles.
"It's going to be Florida State," Little said as he donned an FSU hat.
Previously, most felt Little was headed to Athens to play for the Dawgs. However, he told last week that the departure of former UGA OL coach Neil Callaway played a part in his decision. His feelings about the Garnet and Gold also played a role.
"I've always been a dire hard (FSU) fan since I was small," Little said last week during his interview with "Being able to play for a school you've been a fan of...and Bobby Bowden is the Head Coach. They need help on the offensive line."
The Twiggs County (GA) star will take his official visit to Florida State on January 12th. Little, who becomes commitment No. 11 for the 2007 class, is fully qualified with a 3.2 GPA.
