FSU recruiting troubles 

January, 30, 2006
Not sure if this is something that is going to get blamed on Urban Meyer or Jeff Bowden, but it sounds like Florida State is really struggling to fill a huge area of need: the O-line. Longtime recruiting writer Bill Buchalter of the Orlando Sentinel has the details.

Taking two steps back, seems to me the flash point in all of this came last week, when the 'Noles learned Andre Smith, the nation's top-rated O-lineman, announced he would not be visiting Tallahassee. Instead, he opted to visit the Gators. (Rumor has it Smith is expected to stay home and play for Alabama.) And, on Friday, junior college All-America offensive lineman Brandon Walker picked Oklahoma over FSU.
