Wesley Bissainthe includes Florida State in top 5

Can the Noles steal him from south Florida?

Wesley Bissainthe is a 4-star linebacker prospect from Miami, Florida, and one of the top targets this cycle for Mike Norvell, Adam Fuller, Chris Marve, and the Florida State Seminoles football program. Wednesday night, Bissainthe included Florida State in his final five schools, along with the Florida Gators, Miami (FL) Hurricanes, Penn State Nittany Lions, and West Virginia Mountaineers:

Bissainthe, who stands 6’1 and weighs 200 pounds, attends Miami Central High School, has a 92 rating from the 247 Sports Composite List. The sites consider him the 173rd best player in America (20th best LB and 20th best player in Florida).

The Seminoles currently only have one linebacker prospect committed: Stranahan High School 3-star Omar Graham, Jr., and the depth chart is severely lacking, as well, so Bissainthe is a high-priority target, along with Marietta’s Daniel Martin (4-star), and Lee County’s Jaron Willis (4-star), who’s currently committed to the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets.

If I had to put in a prediction, as of now, my best bet would be on the Hurricanes to keep Bissainthe home.
