TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) _ Florida State landed the quarterback it
coveted and a half dozen offensive linemen in its initial
recruiting class since the school named a successor-in-waiting to
coach Bobby Bowden.
With quarterback Drew Weatherford embarking upon his senior
season and Xavier Lee gone from school, the Seminoles landed
quarterback E.J. Manuel from Virginia Beach.
The cadre of new running backs includes Tavares Pressley,
considered in some quarters as one of the best junior college
runner in the nation.
El Camino receiver Corey Surrency from Southridge High School in
Miami, also will join the Seminoles.
