Early Tuesday evening, Florida State offered blue-chip quarterback recruit Dorian Thompson-Robinson out of Las Vegas (Nev.) Bishop Gorman. The 6’2 195-pound player, rated the 4th-best dual-threat QB in the nation at this very early stage, announced on Twitter that Coach Fisher had formally extended an offer to him.
The offer is significant, as Thompson-Robinson had FSU in his Top 12 before he even received an offer.
At Bishop Gorman, Thompson-Robinson served as the backup to blue-chip QB Tate Martell, who is now enrolled at Ohio State as part of their 2017 class.
What prompted the offer, considering FSU has yet to offer in-state prospects like Joe Milton and Artur Sitkowski? Jimbo Fisher saw him this past weekend up-close and in-person, thanks to Fisher's son playing in the same seven on seven tournament. NCAA rules normally prohibit coach attendance at these events, but 2020 QB-recruit and son Trey Fisher’s presence allowed Fisher the chance to watch Thompson-Robinson.
And CJF clearly liked what he saw.
