ESPN Rankings Update

ESPN150 Post-All Star Game Rankings

The long anticipated ESPN Ranking Update has finally happened! They have redone individual rankings and "star count" for many of the top players in the Nation, including many FSU commits and prospects. It appears that both Devonta Freeman and Kevin Benjamin, two players who I certainly believed to be deserving of Top150 ranking, will not be in the final list. The Noles currently have 1 5*, 13 4*, and 6 3* players committed. JUCO's are not ranked by ESPN, although if they were one has to think our two would be 4* players AT THE MINIMUM. FSU has a great chance to finish with the number #1 class in the nation, as 3 of the Nation's Top20 players are still considering Florida State.




Karlos Williams: 5*, #5

Tony Steward: 5*, #9

Tim Jernigan: 4*, #17

Nick O'Leary: 4*, #20

Bobby Hart: 4*, #25

Giorgio Newberry: 4*, #27

James Wilder Jr: 4*, #29

Keelin Smith: 4*, #60

Nick Waisome: 4*, #67

Brandon Fulse: 4*, #94

Tyler Hunter: 4*, #116

Rashard Greene: 4*, #125

Jordan Prestwood: 4*, #130

Nile Lawrence-Stample: 4*, #146

Jermouria Rasco: 4*, Unranked


Currently: 10 ESPN 150 Players Committed

Copied from ESPN

Although they were a bit premature, Karlos Williams (Davenport, Fla./Ridge Community) drew comparisons to the late Sean Taylor with his play in Orlando, Fla. The FSU commit's blend of size, speed, physicality and athleticism is rare and earned him his fifth star (he's one of just 15 players to earn a five-star grade) and a spot inside the top 10.

Since the first time he was evaluated, we have debated which position to list Florida State commit Giorgio Newberry (Fort Pierce, Fla./Central). A physically gifted player, the four-star Newberry is a legit prospect on both sides of the ball. We felt he showed more upside at offensive tackle, but at the Under Armour All-America Game, he displayed his talents at offensive tackle and defensive end and established himself as one of, if not the most versatile big man in the country. Newberry's overall résumé and performance in Orlando earned him a bump in the rankings as well as a switch from offensive tackle to athlete. The big man fits better in the athlete category as he could help the Seminoles in the trenches in a few ways.

The biggest riser is FSU commit Devonta Freeman (Miami, Fla./Miami Central), who climbed into high four-star status after an excellent senior season that saw him become the full-time feature back and explode through defenses.
