Florida State hosted its first official visitors this past weekend. Quarterback Cameron Sexton and cornerback Michael Ray Garvin made their way into Tallahassee, took in the Clemson game, toured the campus, met with the coaching staff and hung out with the players.

Sexton, a three-star prospect from Laurinburg, North Carolina, made it in on Saturday and was scheduled to leave town Monday. That didn't happen thanks to Tropical Storm Jeanne. So instead of flying out Morning, he took a an early afternoon flight out of town on Sunday. Even though his visit was cut short, the speedy signal-caller had nothing but positives to say about his time at Florida State.

"Everything went real well," Sexton told Warchant.com. "It was a good game. It was an excellent defensive showing by Florida State. It was good to see Wyatt come in and play a little too.

"The real highlight was being with the players, being with Drew (Weatherford) and Geoff (Berniard). That was the most fun, just meeting all the guys and hanging out with them."

Before he jumped on the plane, Sexton was able to sit down and meet with Seminole head coach Bobby Bowden and other members of the coaching staff.

"We were talking about the quarterback situation," he said. "As far as where the Florida State program is heading, they are real excited about this year and the years that are coming up. They really said that their bright years are ahead of them. That's good to hear."

On a 1 to 10 scale, Sexton rated his visit a perfect '10'.

With all the positives for the Garnet and Gold, you might think that Sexton would move the 'Noles to the front of the pack. Even though he was singing FSU's praises after the visit, he is sticking to his same top five without a leader.

"It definitely gave Florida State a big plus," he said of their chances. "They are going to be one of my final schools that's for sure. But right now I'm sticking to five with no leader but this was definitely very, very good for Florida State."

In addition to FSU, Sexton's current top five includes Clemson, Virginia Tech, N.C. State and North Carolina. He reports no leaders among this group. He plans to take an official visit to Va. Tech soon and then make a final decision in early November.

Through four games this season Sexton has thrown for approximately 850 yards and 11 touchdowns.

The No. 13 dual-threat quarterback in the nation is fully qualified academically. He is scheduled to graduate from high school in December and will enroll in college in the spring semester.
