Kirkland enjoys FSU visit

Denver Kirkland, one of the top offensive linemen in the Sunshine State was one of the many visitors at Florida State when the ‘Noles welcomed the Gators Saturday. This was Kirkland's second official visit and it was a good one. The 6-foot-4, 290-pound standout of Booker T. Washington (Miami, FL) talks about his FSU visit and top five schools right here.

Denver Kirkland said he enjoyed every aspect of his official visit to Florida State.

"It's a great school, it was a good experience that I had with my family. It was a great opportunity to go there and see what the school is like," Kirkland said.

"The atmosphere of the game was crazy. All the fans were into it. Every time they did the Seminole chop, everybody was on point."

Kirkland got to spend time with all the FSU coaches, especially Head Coach Jimbo Fischer, Offensive Coordinator James Coley, and Offensive Line Coach Rick Trickett.

"They showed me the depth chart with the offensive line and talked about the people they have and the people coming in, they showed me where I would fit in," he said.

"They said I'd fit at tackle. I feel great about that."

Kirkland also enjoyed spending time with some of the Seminole players and spent most of his time with offensive lineman Ruben Carter, running back Devonta Freeman and defensive back Xavier Rhodes – all guys from Miami.

"They were cool, good to hang around with. Good people," Kirkland said.

The Seminoles definitely impressed the 2013 offensive lineman enough to remain in the race for his skills, but he isn't making any quick decisions.

"After that visit, Florida State is sitting high, but there are still no leaders right now," he said.

"My top five are Ole Miss, Florida State, South Florida, Miami, and West Virginia."

Kirkland officially visited Ole Miss earlier this season and now he has three official visits left. He plans to take those to the other three schools in his top five – USF, Miami, and WVU. Now, he and his Booker T. team continue their hunt for a state title and they'll take on Cocoa (Cocoa, FL) Friday. Kirkland says people can expect a final decision from him on Signing Day.
