College of the Desert CB Deontae Florence (Tampa, FL) could be a late addition to the 2012 Bronco…
Florence can leave after spring
"Ole Miss told me they are coming by in the spring and there is a chance that they will offer me and if they do that will be something I have to consider.
"Boise State has also talked to my counselors, to see about my transcripts to see if I can leave early too. We'll see what happens, but yeah, I'd definitely consider them if they offered too.
"In January I took a visit to New Mexico State and they were close to offering, but they decided to pass because they signed another player there. They said they will look at me this spring and then possibly offer me for after the season, but I'm trying to leave now."
Florence, who is the younger brother of current Buffalo Bills CB Drayton Florence, put up huge numbers in 2011 posting 41 tackles, 8 interceptions and 15 passes defenses while starting seven games for Desert.
"I'm stronger than people think because I'm not that big," Florence said. "I'm stronger than people think, but this year I'm working on getting bigger and also on my speed.
"I run a 4.43, but I want to get that below a 4.4 and I also just want to work on my overall technique.
"I feel I'm a complete corner, but you always need to work on that sorta stuff to get better."
Florence graduated from Armwood (Largo, Fl.) High School and was a full-qualifier, but he didn't get any takers after graduating, so he headed west and enrolled at Butte, but decided to transfer before the start of the season in 2010 to COD and redshirted that year.
Should Florence find a home this spring and sign with a school, he will have three years to play three, however if he returns to the Roadrunners and signs with a school in December he will have two years to play two.
We will continue to keep track of Florence and we will update news as it happens with him.
