Posey picks FSU

November 10, 2004

 Leesburg - The recruiting period in college football will not get cranked up until January but things are winding down for the other sports on the first day of the NCAA's fall signing period on Wednesday.

Lee County's Buster Posey is one of the top 20 high school prospects in the entire nation and the pitcher/shortstop signed to play at Florida State.

 Posey made the Junior Olympic team that played in the World Junior Championships in Taiwan, and just returned from a wooden bat tournament in Florida  where his fastball was registered 93 miles per hour on the radar gun.

At Lee County last season, the AFLAC all-American set a school record with a .544 batting average and 56 hits in winning the Region 1-AAAAA player of the year award.

Picking a college is never an easy decision for any student athlete but Buster Posey could be faced with a tougher decision next spring if he is a high draft pick.

Buster Posey said "That is going to come down to a decision between me and my parents and we are still feeling our way through that right now. Definitely can't just kick that to the curb. I guess there is a chance there but it is nice to have a solid school ready to go to."

Buster Posey also looked at Stanford, Georgia Tech and Georgia.
