Just what Jimbo didn't need less than 48 hours before signing day. Hard-tackling linebacker Markuss Eligwe announces he's putting off inking his LOI for...well, a few days, so he says.
Great. The Noles only commit at a postion that needs fresh blood is suddenly conflicted about his choice. It was that #$%! last recruiting visit, a cross-country trip to California Berkeley. Guess Markuss hasn't heard about the big one -- the earthquake that'll soon have Berkeley looking more like Bedrock, the Flinstone's hometown.
That makes 4-Star LB Reggie Northrup from First Coast even more important to FSU's 2012 class. Maybe being the Noles first, and possibly only, LB signee is enough to snag him from the Canes at the last second.
