Elite corner recruit Trayvon Mullen officially visiting Florida State

FSU will roll out the red carpet for this elite cornerback recruit.

Trayvon Mullen, an elite cornerback recruit from Coconut Creek (Fla.) is taking his official visit to Florida State this weekend. Mullen is a four-star with great height (6'1.5) and good speed.

Florida State returns 11 defensive backs in 2016 but the assumption is that Jalen Ramsey will turn pro, meaning Florida State will likely be in the market for four or five defensive backs.

FSU currently has three defensive backs committed. Levonta Taylor is a five-star cornerback from Virginia Beach and will threaten for immediate playing time and should win the punt returner job; Jamel Cook of Miami Central is a four-star safety from Miami (Fla.) Central; and Kyle Meyers, a solid cover cornerback from New Orleans.

Mullen is the biggest target left on the board, FSU is battling LSU, Florida, TCU, Alabama, Clemson and others, but seems to be in a strong position. Mullen has made multiple trips to Tallahassee and his mother also made a trip earlier in the year.

The Seminoles are also involved with Jayvaughn Myers, of Pasco (Fla.) Dade City, who happens to be the half brother of five-star receiver Nate Craig-Myers; and with Carlos Becker, of Kissimmee (Fla.) Osceola, who could also play safety. FSU is also in on safety Brandon Burton, of Serra (Calif.), and is fighting the California schools for him.

It's a very good bet that FSU can land one or two of those remaining three. But they are also keeping an eye on KJ Sails, of East Bay.
