Blue-chip Louisiana receiver Ja’Khi Douglas foregoes LSU offer, signs with FSU

Florida State heads into Cajun Country and secures a signature from a 4-star talent.

Florida State has gotten another big signature, this one from four-star wide receiver Ja’Khi Douglas during the early signing period.

Douglas — who is ranked as the ninth best recruit from the state of Louisiana — has been committed to the Seminoles since July of 2019. He made a return trip to Tallahassee after Mike Norvell was named FSU’s head coach, where he locked down his commitment to the Seminoles.

A high school quarterback, Douglas projects to move to wide receiver in college. He ran a 4.57 40-yard dash at The Opening Regional earlier this year and measured in at 5-foot-9, 187-pounds.

At Florida State, Douglas is best suited as a slot receiver or all-purpose back. There is playing time available, especially now that sophomore Tre’Shaun Harrison has elected to enter the transfer portal. Star receiver Tamorrion Terry has not made a decision about the NFL Draft, but no receiver behind him caught more than 40 passes in 2019.

Check out Douglas’ highlights below:
