Thoughts from The Three Stars

Josh: Rawls worked out in front of Mike Norvell, and the staff gave him the green-light to commit — good enough for me. And he followed that up with a very nice senior season on offense, defense, and special teams for PC.

Tim: A nice under the radar find for the FSU coaching staff. Rawls has the build and size you want for today’s safety. Great speed and athleticism, he’ll need time to develop and grow physically.

David: Rawls is coachable, versatile, adaptable, and a possible hidden gem for the Seminoles. He could blossom into a starting defensive back and should be a rotational member at worst.
