Florida State football, recruiting news: FSU lands another commitment

What does Vegas think of FSU’s chances this year?

NCAA Football: Florida State at Syracuse Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports


FSU landed a commitment from four-star wide receiver Ja’Khi Douglas yesterday; it’s another good addition to FSU’s class.

FSU commit Demorie Tate tore it up at the opening, 247 lead analyst Barton Simmons thinks he has a five-star kind of ceiling.

Tate really arrived this week as one of the elite cornerbacks in the country. When 7on7 play kicked off and he was asked to just focus on his side of the field and cover, nobody could get open. In particular it was a dangerous game testing him vertically. He has the makeup speed and length to trail receivers and still make a play but he also has the ability to stay on top of a receiver and just shut down any threat of the deep ball. If we are talking purely about physical traits, the Florida State commit has a five-star kind of ceiling.

Four-star offensive tackle target Isaiah Walker, Jr. is back on the market, FSU needs to get him on campus.


Caesars Palace has FSU’s win total over/under at 7 for the regular season; is that too high, too low, or just right?

Willie Taggart’s first priority when getting to FSU was to cut out the rot to establish a good culture; but if you’ve been listening to the Nolecast then you probably already know that FSU’s APR was way too low to be making those kind of roster moves.

Cam Akers ranks 12th on this list of the nation’s top 60 running backs.

Akers ranked as a five-star prospect in the 2017 signing class and led Florida State with 1,025 yards as a freshman that season. The Seminoles struggled mightily along the offensive line in Akers’ sophomore campaign, as he was limited to just 706 yards and six scores. With better play up front in 2019, Akers should push for 1,000 yards and rank among the ACC’s top running backs.
