Recruiting:

FSU offered to class of 2021 WR Beaux Collins on Monday. A 6-foot-3, 185 pound player who is projected to be an elite receiver amongst his class, The California native has attracted tons of attention from programs such as Southern California and Tennessee, especially after attending a camp hosted by Notre Dame, and will surely be an athlete to keep an eye on as he continues to grow and improve. Irish247 recruiting analyst Tom Loye had this to say about the standout wide receiver:

If there was a 2021 recruit worth offering, it was probably Collins. I’d be shocked if he didn’t eventually snag one from Notre Dame. He was fun to watch. Knowing he was only going to be a sophomore was even more impressive. It was no surprise to see USC offer shortly after he camped in South Bend and then in front of the Trojans staff over the weekend. This guy can do it all.

As of late Monday night, 247Sports Composite recruiting class rankings for 2019 has the ’Noles amongst the top 10 at the eighth spot. The Garnet and Gold sit ahead of programs such as Florida and Georgia, and are only one place behind seventh-ranked Miami.
