Florida State has managed to miss out on landing a quarterback in the last two recruiting classes. They hope to end that streak this year by holding onto their current quarterback commit, Jeff Sims. The 2020 4-star had a monster night this past week. Check out his and other commits and targets game stats below in our weekly recap.

Jeff Sims and Sandalwood blew out Nease 44-19. The quarterback commit for Florida State ended the night with 6 touchdowns. He rushed for 4 and passed for 2 as Sandalwood cruised to the easy win. His teammate and 2021 target Branden Jennings picked up sacks on consecutive plays to help lead the defense in shutting down Nease. Check out one of Sims’ touchdown runs below:

Running back Lawrance Toafili helped lead Pinellas Park to a 29-19 win over Mitchell before exiting the game with a groin injury. Before his exit, the 2020 commit piled up 173 yards rushing on 24 carries and found the end zone twice.

FSU is killing it in running back recruiting, along with Toafili, the Seminoles have a pledge from Deerfield Beach’s Jaylan Knighton. The top 5 ranked all purpose back had 174 yards rushing and 3 touchdowns in his team’s 53-0 shutout over Zachary. Check out one of his scores below:

Sticking with running backs, target Daijun Edwards rushed for 169 yards in Colquitt County’s 50-49 loss to Valdosta. He scored twice in the loss. He also has 104 yards receiving.

Linebacker Keyshawn Greene recorded 8 tackles in Wakulla’s 35-10 win over Santa Fe while fellow linebacker commit Jayion McCluster had 6 tackles on the night, 1 one of those for a loss, and also 2 QB pressuers. McCluster is a beast on defense but he is also a force with the ball in his hands. He picked up 2 rushing touchdowns in his team’s 21-14 victory.

Finally, wide receiver commit Ja’Khi Douglas took the opening kickoff to the end zone in Terrebonne’s 60-0 blowout of A.J. Ellender. See his return below:
