3-star receiver Maurice Goolsby signs with Florida State

New, 5 comments

The ’Noles land a big receiver.

Three-star receiver Maurice Goolsby has signed his National Letter of Intent to enroll at Florida State University.

The 6’5, 196 lb receiver, from Dunnellon High School in Dunnellon, Fla., has been verbally committed to FSU since April when he decided to lock in his spot following the Seminoles’ Garnet and Gold Spring Game.

Goolsby was committed to the Gators for much of 2017 before de-committing three days after Florida lost to Florida State, again. He cited his strong relationship with receivers coach David Kelly, whom he considers a father figure, as playing a big role in his recruitment.

Goolsby is ranked by the 247Sports Composite as a top 50 player in the state of Florida and a top 50 wide receiver nationally. Florida State has told Goolsby they see him as a red zone threat, similar to the role Auden Tate once had. At 6’5 with a 30” vertical and good length, he certainly projects well in that spot. Goolsby also held offers from Miami, Georgia, USC, Tennessee, Auburn, North Carolina, Arkansas, and more.
