Florida State out front for Are after visit

November 18, 2013 

OL Kareem Are of Fort Scott JC, KS made his official visit to Florida State over the weekend, the first of four possible official visits he plans to take.

Are said he had a very good time with the Seminoles. "I really liked meeting with coach Trickett. I just love the way he coaches. When you are over there you are going to become the best player you can be. That's what really attracts me. I know he won't let me give him anything but my best effort which will make me the best player I can be. Right now I'm really liking them because they were my first offer, and before last week they were my only offer."

Are will visit Penn State this coming weekend followed by an official visit to USC for the Clemson weekend.

He said his mother talked recently with Gamecock defensive line coach Deke Adams. "She likes it a lot," Are said. "She had a great conversation with him and she was all excited about it. She doesn't really care about all of this football stuff but she sounded excited about it."

Are added that Ole Miss recently offered him and could get a fourth official visit.

Right now Florida State is his favorite coming off his first offer and he can't rank the other three because he hasn't seen them in person. He'll make his decision sometime in December.
