Rashad Greene, a wide receiver from St. Thomas Aquinas High School has committed to play for the Florida State Seminoles, per Warchant.com Thought to be FSU's top target at the receiver position, Greene had long expressed similar fondness for FSU and pulled the trigger today after the Jimbo Fisher Football Camp.
Greene is 6'0" and 170 lbs. He runs a legit sub-4.4 40 time and had offers from all the major programs, including UGA (he's originally from Georgia), Alabama, Florida, and Miami. Here's the scouting report from the 2011 Recruiting Board:
Rashad is seriously fast. He ran the fastest 40 meter dash at the 2011 prospect combine run by Under Armour in Orlando, with a 4.4 on a wet track (100 meter champion Mike Bellamy ran 4.5 for comparison.) He is an extremely explosive athlete. Runs good routes. Catches the ball well in front of his body. He is very similar in crispness to FSU Commit Kenny Shaw from last cycle, giving him a much better chance to reach his ceiling than someone who is just raw. Greene is an ideal combination of the good qualities of current 'Nole wideouts Taiwan Easterling (hands, body control, routes, smarts) and Bert Reed (speed, explosiveness), and he's taller. Rashad receives good coaching from a proven program as well (hall-of-fame wideout Chris Carter. We believe he is the #1 WR on FSU’s board. Greene is originally from Georgia. Also boasts a 3.5 Core GPA and a qualified SAT. Values education. Quiet, humble kid. Even in an offense that spread it around, Greene could quickly be a 50-catch, 700 yard wideout.

Greene is a 4* prospect and one of the top 20 receivers in the country. There will be much debate this year over the top receiver prospect in Florida, but Greene must be included in the discussion. He is in the ESPNU 150 (#123). FSU now has 12 commitments and a stunning 6 of them are ranked in the ESPNU 150. This is an excellent pickup for Florida State. Rashad is an excellent pickup for Florida State. He gets open using athleticism and technique, he catches the ball, and is smart. And he is coached by former Pro Bowler Chris Carter. What more could FSU fans want in a receiver?
Actually, there is something more. Greene is teammates with offensive tackle Bobby Hart, one of the 10 best offensive linemen in the country and a top target for FSU. The 'Noles currently lead for Hart, but it won't hurt their chances to have Greene leaning on him as well.
