Florida State football, recruiting news: 5-star QB Justin Fields wraps up two-day visit

Cam Akers is going to win the Heisman.

Justin Fields at Jimbo Fisher Camp


Justin Fields wrapped up a visit that began Tuesday night and ended Wednesday afternoon with a strong performance in front of Jimbo Fisher at the Jimbo Fisher Camp. Here’s what he had to say about working with Coach Fisher:

"It was good, being able to throw in front of coach Fisher and getting to learn from him," Fields told Noles247 after camp ended. "He talked about how he can develop me into becoming a great quarterback. He really knows what he's talking about. Right when he told me to do something it made my throws better."

The camp session lasted over 2 hours and Fields had an excellent day throwing the football.

"We worked on basic mechanics, keeping my front shoulder closed and downward. It wasn't intense at all, I was just throwing the ball, doing what I do and trying to suck up all the info I could because I know how great he is working with quarterbacks," he said.

Justin Fields wasn’t the only QB at camp as Jace Ruder also threw for Jimbo Fisher.

Here are the highlights from Day 1 of camp.

Florida State landed its first of many wide receiver commitments for this cycle in recruit, D’Marcus Adams.

FSU did not accept Johnathan Huggins commitment yet because it wants to see some academic progress but if they like what they see in the classroom you can expect him in this class.

Kyler McMichael is down to six:


Cam Akers is going to win the Heisman and four other bold predictions from CBSSports’ Ben Kercheval.

55 of FSU’s currently 86 players were at the camp yesterday.

If there’s one current player that you’re sure is going to be a coach one day, who would it be? Deondre Francois? Derwin James? Jacob Pugh? Maybe a certain 5th year defensive back.

The plodding, 3 yards and a cloud of dust Big Ten is no more.

Could the National Letter of Intent make like the VCR and get stuck in the past?

The new scoreboard is almost finished:

Who’s the next coach to join this exclusive club of national championship winners? Bud Elliott and Richard Johnson debate.
