Florida State football, recruiting news 8/11

-- Andrea Adelson and Jared Shanker of ESPN debate which ACC team has the best WRs this year. Adelson sided with the Clemson Tigers but Shanker chose the Seminoles, citing their depth:

Travis Rudolph is an emerging star after hauling in 38 catches as a freshman. The sophomore has tremendous quickness and foot speed, which he displayed in a devastating juke near the goal line against Notre Dame.

Ermon Lane, the No. 2-ranked receiver nationally in the 2014 class, is the type of physical threat Kelvin Benjamin provided in 2013. Lane made several explosive plays as a freshman (20.5 yards per catch), and he was an elite blocker on the outside.

Now add elite 2015 blue chippers George Campbell, Da’Vante Phillips, Nyqwan Murray and Auden Tate to go along with the 2014 class and junior Jesus Wilson, who leads all returning receivers with 42 catches a season ago.

- In the middle of the 2015 class that has 4 wide receivers fighting for playing time, Auden Tate has stood out and drawn comparisons to a recent Seminole WR standout, writes Brendan Sonnone of the Orlando Sentinel.

- With nearly all of the buzz surrounding Notre Dame QB transfer Everett Golson, Corey Clark of the Tallahassee Democrat plays contrarian, stating that Sean Maguire is not shying away from the QB competition.

- Ben Davis, a 5-star 2016 LB, tweeted out the customized photo that FSU sends to recruits and it looks pretty impressive.
