Rising junior defensive back Carlos Becker III could very well contribute meaningful snaps to the Seminole secondary come fall. But before he has the chance to get on the field, he’ll have to get back on his feet after undergoing ankle surgery today.
Becker took to Instagram to post a picture of himself in a hospital gown on Thursday (included below), but did not provide much context as to the nature of his injury or the timeline expected for his recovery. However, sources close to the situation have confirmed to Tomahawk Nation that Becker went under the knife to address an ankle issue, and that he expects to miss about two months. That will exclude him from participating in FSU’s spring practice, which commences on March 21.
Becker (6’2, 183), a phenomenal and versatile athlete, made his way to Tallahassee from Kissimmee’s Osceola High School. He played in 12 games in 2016, culminating with the interception that clinched Florida State’s Orange Bowl victory over Michigan, and saw action in nine games in 2017.
