Wednesday is the first day junior college transfers can sign a letter of intent. And the 2010 JC sack leader (with 16) could be coming FSU's way. Tank Carradine a 6-5, 245 DE from Butler CC, the same school where Markus White played, has reportedly shunned Ohio State and will sign tomorrow with FSU. At least that's what this OSU site is reporting:
Cornelius "Tank" Carradine will be committing to Florida State on Wednesday, and he will not be missed by the Ohio State staff after the stunt he pulled this weekend.
Carradine, a Junior College recruit, was scheduled to officially visit Ohio State this weekend but did not make it to Columbus. Carradine took the flight as planned, but instead of traveling to Columbus for his official visit, he used the opportunity to go home to Cincinnati to see his mother. He essentially used Ohio State's interest in him to bum a free plane trip home.
You've gotta like his potential, but not a good character move if Carradine used an official visit to see his Mom instead of showing up on the Buckeye campus.
Reality check: The Atlanta Journal-Constituion spoke to Carradine's JC coach, who told the AJC's recruiting writer:
“I don’t know what’s going to happen. He’s at home now [in Cincinnati] and I doubt he’ll talk to anybody. To be honest, he’s somewhat overwhelmed by the whole thing.”
