The second commitment for FSU’s 2021 recruiting class is in the books as 2021 running back, Keyshawn Spencer, has committed to Florida State. As first reported by Wayne McGahee of The Democrat:
#FSU has landed a commitment from 2021 RB KeyShawn Spencer out of Melbourne Central Catholic— Wayne McGahee III (@WayneMcGaheeIII) March 14, 2019
Spencer joins Dequaveon Fuller, younger brother of FSU 2019 signee Quashon Fuller in its growing rising, junior class. At 5’10 173lbs from Melbourne Catholic High School in Melbourne Florida Spencer is a smooth athlete with plenty of wiggle. He also possesses great acceleration quickly reaching top speed before his opponents can even get out of their cleats but don’t just take my word for it; see for yourself:
As a 2021 recruit he is unranked; that’s because all of the 2021 kids are unranked right now but eventually when the rankings are done I wouldn’t be surprised to see him ranked highly.
He committed to FSU over offers from Texas A&M, Kentucky, Tennessee, Purdue, Arkansas, and a few others.
Back in 2018 Spencer told 247sports this after being offered by Kentucky and Nebraska.
The 5-foot-10, 173-pound Spencer is solely focused on reaching new heights both on the field and in the classroom, placing the recruiting process somewhat on the back burner at this time.
”Kentucky, I haven’t really looked into it too much, but I’m going to look into it a little more, and Purdue,” Spencer said. “I haven’t really looked into it; it’s early.”
Spencer, who accumulated 533 rushing yards and seven total touchdowns as a freshman, says Florida State is the dream destination on the collegiate level.
”Some of my favorite running backs came from FSU,” Spencer said. “I’ve been watching the school since I was a little kid.”
Looks like his dream came true.
