Jimbo Fisher football camp begins Wednesday, and this is the recruiting event Florida State fans have been waiting for. The Seminoles are looking to sign about 24-27 players in the class (27 only if they have studs beating down their door). This event looks to be extremely loaded.
As we saw with the last camp, FSU is being very selective and stingy with some offers. Having a "road" game at Miami in front of many South Florida recruits, and the uncertainty swirling in Gainesville, may yield opportunities for FSU to be in a position to grab some players it otherwise would not have landed. It needs to have spots open later in the year and not be in a position which forces it to tell numerous commits to look elsewhere.
Thursday, we are expecting the most talent at the camp. Players such as RB Jacques Patrick, WR Darnell Salomon, OL Abdul Bello and others will be attending. And many of the top guys mentioned Wednesday will be working out. To put this day in perspective, I'd venture that no school (except maybe Alabama) will have a camp this year with more talent than Florida State's. The coaching staff has done a tremendous job of making sure top recruits are getting to the camp -- and this cannot be understated because Florida State is not exactly an easy spot to get to for many recruits.

Please feel free to ask about any player and Dustin Tackett or myself will try to get an answer for you.
