3-star Myles Autry to visit Florida State Seminoles

Throughout the recruiting process, 3-star athlete Myles Autry has been extremely interested in the Florida State Seminoles.

Early on, the feeling was clearly mutual. Autry came on visit after visit and attended camp after camp in Tallahassee.

However, the strong feelings on both sides seemed to fizzle after the season and Autry and schools like Florida State, Auburn and Georgia seemingly lost interest in each other.

Autry scheduled an official visit to Tallahassee for the final weekend of the recruiting season, which becomes dead on Sunday night before National Signing Day on Wednesday.

The visit looked like it was off, but now appears to be back on.


The 5’9, 175-pounder had struggled this season at times, but he was recovering from a torn ACL. He had surgery in January, but still managed to play this season.

As for why Autry’s visit is back on? Maybe the Seminoles have an extra spot after parting with  defensive end Blake McClain and wide receiver C.J. Worton on mutual terms. Maybe he could simply fill the spot they were saving for 5-star cornerback Marlon Humphrey, who committed to Alabama earlier this week. Or maybe it has something to do with his teammate at Norcross High School in Georgia, 5-star defensive end Lorenzo Carter. Carter also has Florida State as a finalist, but has maintained he and Autry are not a package deal.

Autry’s other top school is Georgia Tech.
