A big week in recruiting for Florida State as it landed 4-star defensive tackle, Darvin Taylor. Taylor is a top 200 recruit that had been a strong FSU lean before his commitment. Check out his commitment story here.
There were several Florida State recruits and targets in action last night, we have the results below.
Derwin James and Haines City were in action against Winter Haven. James was a force on the field and did a little bit of everything. He was dominant in the first half with an interception (called back), a punt return TD(called back), a TD catch and a blocked PAT. Winter Haven used multiple defenders on him in the second half and pulled out a rain shortened win against Haines City.
