New, 105 comments

FSU picked up a local four-star receiver from Wakulla in Keith Gavin.

Four-star wide receiver Keith Gavin announced his recommitment to Florida State today. Gavin was commited to FSU before decommitting on August 26th. Despite decommitting, the Wakulla high school product made his official visit to campus on January 22nd. Measuring in at 6'3 and 211 pounds, 24/7 Sports ranks Gavin as the 111th best player in America and the 17th best receiver. He was recruited by wide receivers coaches Lawrence Dawsey and co-offensive coordinator Randy Sanders. The 18-year-old chose Florida State over 14 other schools such as Alabama, Clemson, Georgia and Florida.

Coming off of a strong junior year in which he caught 16 touchdowns for over 1,100 yards, Gavin continued the success into his senior year and improved on kick returning, totaling 339 return yards all season. In 15 games, the Crawfordville native caught another 16 touchdowns and 972 yards in 15 games played. His high school finished the season at 13-2 before falling in the State championship game in Orlando. He was selected to play in the Under Armour All-American game on the same team as current FSU quarterback Malik Henry.

Currently, the 'Noles have a plethora of wide receivers with many of them sophomores with potential, such as Auden Tate, Nyqwan Murray and George Campbell. Look for Gavin on special teams early with potential to find a spot as an outside receiver if any injuries or struggles arise.
