Until about three days ago everyone thought that Kentron Poitier was signing with Syracuse but a prolonged effort from Ron Dugans and his being retained sealed the deal for the Florida State.
The 6’2 200lb three-star wide receiver from Miami Palmetto High School in Miami, Florida is another tall, long wide receiver added to FSU’s 2020 recruiting class. He signed with FSU over offers from Syracuse, Florida, Alabama, and Auburn.
Poitier is the first of four wide receivers that FSU is hoping to sign today.
Kentron is a big wide receiver with good leaping ability, hands and the ability to really rack up the yards after the catch by making the first man miss. He’s not as tall as Auden Tate but he compares well stylistically with the former Seminole and current Cincinnati Bengal:

With the graduation of Keith Gavin, the potential early decision of Tamorrion Terry, and two returning receivers (Keyshawn Helton, Ontaria Wilson) coming off season-ending injuries a fresh infusion of talent is needed and Poitier is the first step towards that solution.
