Florida State football receiver recruiting rundown 2018 – Tomahawk Nation
Florida State needs to take at least four receivers in the 2018 recruiting class. While all of the scholarship receivers on the 2017 team are slated to return, juniors Nyquan Murray, Auden Tate, and Da’Vante Phillips are all technically draft eligible, meaning the prudent strategy for FSU is to plan on at least one of them leaving early. Redshirt sophomore George Campbell has never been able to stay healthy, and at this point cannot be counted on until he proves otherwise. True sophomore Keith Gavin could jump to the NFL after the 2018 season, and FSU took two receivers in the 2017 class.
Thus the need to sign four in the 2018 class, as a pro-style team like the Seminoles usually wants to carry eight or nine on the roster.
FSU currently has two commitments in the class.
Antoine Green, Rockledge (FLa.)
The 6’3, 195-pound Green chose FSU offers from 30 other offers including Ohio State, Georgia, Oregon, Tennessee, North Carolina, Ole Miss, and Louisville.
At the recent Nike Opening event in Orlando Green measured in at 6’3 195lbs, ran a 4.5 forty, a 4.38 shuttle, and added a 37.5 vertical jump. All plus athletic traits which show up time and time again on his junior highlights.
Green is rated as a three-star, but that is rather deceptive given the slow reaction times of the rating services this year (several have not even rated him). FSU, Ohio State, Georgia, etc. are not in the business of chasing three-stars eight months ahead of signing day, and I believe Green is a four-star talent.
D’Marcus Adams, Daytona Beach (Fla.)
Adams has impressed at camp for two-consecutive years. He profiles as a slot with plus speed, and is rated a three-star recruit, probably justifiably. Penn State and North Carolina also offered.
