Chris Casher, a very talented defensive end/ for the class of 2012 from Faith Academy in Mobile, Alabama has committed to the Florida State Seminoles. Casher is considered one of the top players in the state of Alabama for the 2012 class. His primary recruiter is FSU quarterback coach Dameyune Craig, a Mobile native. Casher currently holds offers from Florida State, Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, Arkansas, and Tennessee. With those six offers, it is fair to say he will be one of the most heavily recruited prospects in the Southeast. He could also play tight end.
Casher stands 6'4" and weighs about 230 lbs. He projects to be 6'4" or 6'5" and 250 lbs when he steps on the field for Florida State in the Fall of 2012. Casher will probably end up at around 265 lbs for Florida Sate. He has excellent athleticism and length. As you can see below, he is still a bit raw, but this is very good film for a Junior.
Casher's dad is rumored to be a huge 'Nole fan and that factor may have helped FSU in securing his commitment. Though he is committed, it remains extremely difficult to pull Alabama and Auburn targets out of Mobile and FSU will have to fight off Alabama for the next 390 days to keep his pledge. Casher's grades are also an unknown, but there are rumblings that he needs to finish strong in his final three semesters to make it in.
Florida State continues to do an excellent job identifying targets quickly and landing them early. Casher is the fifth commitment of the 2012 class. The others are Dalvon Stuckey (6'3" 295lb DT), Delmarick "Mario" Pender (elite RB), P.J. Williams (excellent DB), and Dante Fowler, Jr. (excellent defensive end). Florida State already has good talent. With the 2011 and 2012 classes, however, it is about to have great talent.
