From Mitch Sherman of ESPN:

Still, Edwards says Florida State is the team to beat in this race. It's been his favorite since Mario Jr. attended his father's games as a kid in Tallahassee. The elder Edwards, who played five seasons in the NFL with Dallas and Tampa Bay, won a national title at FSU as a senior in 1999.

"I let Florida State know that other teams are interested in me, and that I want to continue to look around," Edwards said. "But Florida State is still my team, my No. 1 team."

Edwards said Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher and assistant Lawrence Dawsey initially bristled when he told them of his plans. Now? They understand the situation, according to Edwards.

While OU ranks as the top option to unseat Florida State, Edwards said he'd also like to visit LSU, Southern California and perhaps Texas.

"I feel like I earned the right to look around," he said.
