Will Laremy Tunsil Really Leave Florida? Offensive Tackle Says Georgia, Bama Lead

Is star offensive tackle recruit Laremy Tunsil headed out of state? A recent video interview with ESPN seem to suggest so.

Out of Lake City (Fla.) Columbia High School, Tunsil is widely considered the top offensive tackle recruit in the country, holding more than 30 offers. But those schools closest to him, Florida and Florida State, aren't in his top group.

"Right now, I have a top two. I have Georgia and Alabama," Tunsil said in the interview below.

Later in the video, when asked about the Florida Gators, Tunsil reiterates that he has a top two, but acknowledges that the Gators are in this third spot.

Tunsil later goes on to say that he didn't answer any calls from coaches once the dead period on contact was lifted in early September.

Asked whether Florida State is in the mix, Tunsil said they were not, adding that he likes FSU offensive line coach Rick Trickett, but does not like Florida State's program.

Tunsil has previously said that he plans to make his decision closer to National Signing Day, as opposed to an early commitment, as many top recruits have done in the class of 2013.
