Florida State signs top kicker

February 04, 1993|By Knight-Ridder News Service

Place-kicker Scott Bentley of Aurora (Colo.) Overland switched from Notre Dame to Florida State in the final weekend of college football recruiting.

Florida State has lost two straight games to Miami because kickers missed field-goal tries in the final seconds.

Quarterback Thad Busby, linebacker Daryl Bush, receiver Andre Cooper and defensive end Julian Pittman also are going to Florida State.

Quarterback Ron Powlus of Berwick, Pa., signed with Notre Dame.

Though Florida State had the best overall group, Notre Dame recruited the top offensive class and Michigan had the finest defenders.

Penn State was beaten to nearly every player in its state, and receiver Joe Jurevicius was one of the few stars coach Joe Paterno was able to land.
