Dwyer’s Nick O’Leary says he likes Florida State, does not like Florida 

By Matt Porter

A spot seems to have opened up for Nick O’Leary at Florida. Is he interested?

Nope.

O’Leary, the No. 1 prospect on the PBGametime Big Board and one of the country’s top recruits, says he is not interested in playing for the Gators.

On Thursday, A.C. Leonard, a tight end from Jacksonville-University Christian, de-committed from Florida, leaving room for another tight end in the upcoming freshman class.

O’Leary said he heard the news about Leonard, ranked No. 4 among Class of 2011 tight ends by Rivals.com, but Florida is not an option for him.

“I [liked UF] at the very beginning, but not anymore,” said O’Leary, who had 3 catches for 40 yards and two touchdowns in Dwyer’s 52-7 win over Park Vista Thursday night.

O’Leary also confirmed that Florida State is his top choice.

“I like Florida State a lot. It’s a good place, and they have a senior tight end who’s going to go, so I’ll be able to play,” he said.

O’Leary was seen hanging out outside FSU’s locker room after its win over Miami last Saturday. Dwyer coach Jack Daniels said this week he thought O’Leary would eventually pick FSU.

The 6-foot-4, 235-pound O’Leary says he is interested in FSU, Miami, LSU, Alabama and Wisconsin, where he will visit this weekend with teammates Jacoby Brissett and Curt Maggitt. He will visit LSU with Brissett and Maggitt Nov. 6.

O’Leary said all three want to play together next season.

“We’re definitely not going to Florida,” he said. “At least, I’m not, and I know Jacoby isnt.”
