Florida State football recruiting: 5-stars Malachi Dupre, Marlon Humphrey discussing FSU

Malachi Dupre - SB Nation

So this is big. Potentially. One of the reasons FSU went with Jameis Winston as the starting quarterback is that it had already begun using him to recruit after the spring. Through five games, the dynamic quarterback is playing better than perhaps any quarterback in the history of the school. And recruits are taking notice.

That's River Ridge (La.) John Curtis' receiver Malachi Dupre, the top receiver recruit in the country, talking with Hoover (Ala.) cornerback Marlon Humphrey, the top corner recruit in the country. Literally, 1s on 1s. Five-stars from out of state. And they're discussing Florida State according to Dupre's tweet.

This is significant because it's not a player tweeting about a positive conversation he just had with someone like Jameis Winston (in Dupre's case) or defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt (with whom Humphrey is very close). These are two players who are not considered Florida State leans by any stretch (Dupre is considered a strong LSU lean and Humphrey, the son of Crimson Tide legend Bobby Humphrey, is considered a strong Alabama lean) having a conversation about possible going and playing for Florida State. That's huge news.

If Florida State can get the pair (particularly Dupre, who did not visit for either summer camp session) in to visit, it can bring out all the stops, and compete for their signature. The next key is turning the chatter into some concrete visit plans.
