"(McCloud) can help this team," defensive line coach Odell Haggins said. "He can help the defense. Anthony’s a good kid. He’s starting to work a lot harder. He can help this team. He came in and it was a rude awakening. But he has accepted the challenge." "Phenomenal changes," Florida State first-year head coach Jimbo Fisher said. "He came in at 330, 325 pounds, (but he’s) about 305 now. His whole body composition’s changed. I think he’s got a chance to be a really good player." -and- "I’m really proud of Debrale in that when you look at him in the spring … and what he’s done with his body, he has changed his body and worked so hard in the offseason," FSU running backs coach Eddie Gran said. "You could tell right now (early in fall practice) how much better he is, two-fold; one, he knows the offense a lot better. He’s not thinking too much, he’s just playing; two, he’s faster and has more agility. With his power, we’ll see. There’s going to be a role for him somewhere." Fisher added, "He’s had a great summer. He was around 250, 260 (pounds) when he came in from JUCO because he hadn’t played the other year. He’s gotten himself into that 232-237 range consistently. He’s increased his strength, his speed. He’s getting back in the groove because he hadn’t played for awhile. He had a good spring, summer. He looks very good, catching the ball good, big body."
