Florida State hosted its biggest recruiting visit weekend of the year from Friday to Sunday.
The Seminoles hosted 14 official visitors and five unofficial visitors over the weekend. here’s a rundown on how their visits went.
The highest ranked player on FSU’s campus this weekend was five-star cornerback Akeem Dent.
Dent has been committed to FSU since July 2017, but that hasn’t stopped Alabama from making a run at him. The FSU coaching staff hoped that this weekend’s official visit would lock Dent in and they could convince him to sign during the early signing period.
At this point, I’m still not sure if Dent is going to sign early, but I do believe that he is completely locked in with FSU regardless.
Four-star linebacker Kalen DeLoach has been entertaining Michigan despite his commitment to FSU, but said he is completely locked in with FSU and will sign with the Seminoles this week.
Four-star guard Dontae Lucas has been the subject of rumors lately about how firm his commitment to FSU is, but he said he plans to sign with FSU on Sunday. As long as tight ends coach Telly Lockette remains on staff at FSU, Lucas will be signing with the Seminoles.
Four-star linebacker Jaleel McRae, four-star defensive end Curtis Fann, three-star defensive end Derrick McLendon, three-star cornerback Malcolm Green, and three-star defensive tackle Tru Thompson are all firmly committed and spent the weekend recruiting for the Seminoles.
Goolsby said he’s good to go academically, which had been in question.
Three-star JUCO offensive tackle Jay Williams had a great visit and I expect him to end up at FSU at this time. He’ll be enrolling early.
Three-star cornerback Jarvis Browlee and three-star defensive tackle Malcolm Ray both enjoyed their official visits to FSU. The two teammates want to play with each other at the next level and FSU is the only school they have in common. Expect both in the class.
Four-star safety Raymond Woodie III said that he doesn’t know where he plans to sign, but all signs point to FSU. He only took two official visits, including FSU this past weekend. He visited Louisville before the coaching change and hasn’t visited anywhere else officially. He will sign this week.
Three-star guard Maurice Smith is committed to Boston College, but FSU is making a run at flipping him. He left early Sunday morning and I didn’t get a chance to speak with him before he left.
The unofficial visitors were just as important as the official visitors.
Three-star linebacker Kevon Glenn and 2020 three-star defensive end Wil Anderson took visits to FSU on Friday. Glenn was recently offered and FSU feels very good about pulling him in with this class. Anderson picked up an offer during his visit.
Four-star JUCO linebacker Lakia Henry arrived for a multi-day visit to FSU on Friday night. The Seminoles offered him during the visit and there’s confidence that FSU can flip him away from Tennessee. He isn’t signing early and will likely take an official visit to FSU after the new year.
Four-star FSU defensive end commit Quashon Fuller took a multi-day visit this weekend with his mother. Fuller has been committed to the Seminoles for almost two years, but Florida, Auburn, and Alabama are hoping to flip him.
Fuller isn’t signing early, but wanted to come meet with the members of the FSU recruiting class that were signing early to get a feel for who he would be playing with.
The visit went well and he’ll be back to FSU for an official visit on Jan. 18.
Mississippi State three-star offensive tackle commit Darius Washington took an multi-day visit to FSU over the weekend. FSU hasn’t offered him yet, but he likely will pick one up and there’s a chance he could take an official visit in January.
