Welcome back to another week of updates on Florida State recruits and targets' performances in the last week's games.
Let’s start off with one of Florida State’s biggest targets still on the board, 2018 quarterback target, Justin Fields. Florida State coaches were in town this past week to see Fields lead Harrison to a 49-0 blowout of River Ridge. Fields recorded 330 total yards of offense. He finished the night 12 of 19 for 275 yards passing. He tacked on three touchdown passes and one touchdown run. Check out the clip below of Fields completing a 60+ yard touchdown pass.

Amari Gainer is know as a hard hitting linebacker for Chiles. This past week, the 2018 linebacker commit not only filled that role but also played some running back on the offensive side of the ball in Chiles’ 36-7 win over Florida High. On defense, Gainer had two sacks to go along with seven tackles, and a big interception. On offense, Gainer chipped in 34 rushing yards.
Speaking of Florida State commits playing on both sides of the ball, 2018 safety commit, Israel Mukuamu, also played wide receiver in his team’s 62-21 loss. Mukuamu did have a 30 yard touchdown catch in the game, which he followed up with a Tomahawk Chop.

Charles Strong, the lone running back commit for Florida State in 2018, picked up 106 yards rushing in Union County’s 21-7 loss to Dixie County.
Last on the list is a 2019 commit, wide receiver Jalen Curry. He teamed up again with 2019 quarterback target, Grant Gunnell, to lead St. Pius X to a 58-41 win over College Station. Curry had one touchdown reception on 135 yards receiving. Where as Gunnell threw for 473 yards and six touchdowns.
