Thoughts from The Three Stars
David: You might have seen me mention Hykeem before- I kinda like him. My predictions, assuming he stays healthy? Starter by his second season, possibly even towards the end of his first. Multiple All-ACC awards. All-American and Biketnikoff candidate. NFL Draft pick in the first two rounds. And I still might be selling him short- he’s that good.
Josh: Did FSU seriously land Hykeem Williams? Is this a dream??
Tim: Someone check on David — is he breathing? FSU just secured the signature of a stud.
