Sexton enjoys Tallahassee visit
For Cameron Sexton, the trip to Tallahassee answered a few questions.
A highly regarded quarterback from Laurinburg, N.C., Sexton took part in the FSU football camp and got a chance to tour the renovated facilities and meet with Seminoles coach Bobby Bowden. That meeting, he said, went well.
"He's an impressive guy," Sexton said. "Meeting a legend was pretty good."
Sexton did more than meet with Bowden. In addition to participating in the camp, he also spent time on Monday afternoon taking part in the players-run passing drills.
"It was a good experience," Sexton said. "It was the first time throwing to college receivers. It's fun throwing to a bunch of good athletes. Chris (Rix) was great and so was Wyatt (Sexton). All the other quarterbacks were good about it."
Sexton said he will visit North Carolina on July 17 before calling it quits on his summer tour. He said that, in addition to FSU, he has been offered scholarships by ACC schools Clemson, Virginia Tech and North Carolina. He is also considering Miami and North Carolina State, among other schools.
"I've got a lot of great options, so I'm happy about that," Sexton said.
One of those options is FSU, which signed two highly rated quarterbacks this past spring. But Sexton said a roster with Wyatt Sexton, Xavier Lee and Drew Weatherford does not hurt FSU's chances.
"That was part of the thing that I wanted to check out when I came down here," Sexton said. "I wanted to see what people thought about that. I have a good feeling about it now. Guys like that are going to be everywhere I go and there will always be people coming behind me.
"I'm going to go where I feel good and where I think I'm the best fit. If that's here, I'm not going to be scared of them. I'll just come out here and compete with them."
Though temperatures on Monday hit 97 degrees, Sexton said the weather didn't scare him either.
"It's not as bad as I thought," Sexton said. "I thought it would be really hot, but it's really a lot like home."
Sexton said his plan is to narrow his list of schools to "five or six or seven" after the summer and "go from there." But, he added, his visit to FSU was a positive experience.
"I love it down here," Sexton said. "Of course, Coach Bowden is great and I like Coach Dickey. They're re-doing all the facilities and you know you will play with the best athletes in the country. This place is very, very appealing to me. I'll give it a good hard look."
