SB Nation’s Richard Johnson took a look at what teams could be making big moves on the recruiting trail before National Signing Day, and the Seminoles are one of them.
The recruiting trail out west doesn’t seem to be going dry anytime soon, and the Seminoles just offered tight end Cameron McDonald out of Long Beach Poly High School in California. McDonald is listed at 6-4, 210lbs and is the no. 1 tight end in California. McDonald is currently ranked as the no. 40 overall prospect in California and no. 15 nationally at his position.
