He has a good relationship with Jay Graham and promised him he would take an OV.....I don't think it's any more complicated than that.

USC recruiter Deke Adams is meeting tonight with DL Dexter Wideman of Saluda before Wideman takes his official visit to Florida State this weekend. No one else has been in to see Wideman thus far this week. Wideman has been committed to Florida State since the summer but new Saluda coach Stewart Young feels things are up in the air as the end of the recruiting season nears. Its 50-50 and a Signing Day decision, Young said. He told Florida State hes going to visit them so hell visit. Wideman will make that visit with some of his immediate family members. Head coaches Steve Spurrier and Jimbo Fisher had their in home visits last week. Wideman plans to announce on Signing Day around 2:45 PM at his school.

Do you think he's a silent commit to us because visiting a school that you are committed to only because you feel obligated makes me feel that he will be a Gamecock.

I don't know but all the analysts on the pay sites and 100% of the crystal ball are picking the Gamecocks. He's had great visits to Columbia and has gotten to know the players very well. He's only been to FSU once this past summer and hasn't been back.

Yeah, I think Darrel Scotts relationship with Pharoh Cooper will be enough to get him to flip too... LOL just kidding, that won't make him flip like it won't for Dexter.

Also, Wideman brought his family to FSU this weekend, so if anyone was under the impression that it wasn't a serious visit, that should clear things up for you.

I have no idea, but if he sticks with FSU, then apparently he has not been truthful with folks behind closed doors. All of the pay site guys have been saying for awhile they felt very confident in Wideman flipping.

I feel like it was very premature to assume he would flip to us considering he 1) did not shut it down after his OV, 2) took his OV to FSU the last weekend before signing day while they had their MNC celebration, and 3) brought his family with him.

Yes, he visited USC a lot this year but it took 1 visit for him to commit there in the summer (when we led big for him) and them getting the last OV before signing day as well as him bringing his family there gave me a bad feeling which is why I did not predict him as part of this class.

He may flip to us but no one should be surprised if he doesn't.

Three good points....I will say the same family members that visited FSU this weekend also visited Columbia on his OV here. It's a long drive to Tallahassee.

While it may be a long drive, the FSU staff got a chance this weekend to make their pitch to the family members. I don't believe they were on the trip with him in the summer. If he went on this trip alone, I would say done deal - he is flipping but the fact his family went with him tells me that this was never the done deal many assumed it was.

I bet the young man is probably confused right now but just going off of my personal gut feelings, I am predicting he stays with FSU. I'm waiting to hear what info my FSU buddy has for me, if any.

Maybe on the way back home, they will start talking about how far away it is and how many trips they will need to make to watch Dexter play at FSU. We have good defensive coaches, our system is stable, our facilities are equal or better than FSU, and we play in the SEC.

Momma isn't going to like the FSU coeds after her son. Maybe that will help us.

IMO, this was an important visit. As it's been well documented, he's an impressionable kid. He's gonna be a Nole I'm afraid. Due to the last visit and the inability of saying "no".
