Florida State will host a pair of top recruits from Florida this weekend as it takes on Boston College.

As a 28-point favorite, The Florida State Seminoles are considered a lock to defeat the Boston College Eagles this weekend.

The real battle will wage off the field, as FSU hosts two of the state's top recruits, one of which is committed to the Miami Hurricanes.

That would be Alex Collins, one of the top running back recruits not only in the state, but also the country. Collins, out of South Plantation (Fla.) High School, is an excellent blend of size and quickness. See for yourself:

Collins does not play great competition, but his skills are undeniable. Many believe FSU has a strong chance to pull him away from the hometown Hurricanes.

Also taking an official visit will be safety Marcell Harris. Out of Orlando (Fla.) Dr. Phillips, Harris is the son of a former Florida Gator star. Many believe he will end up in Gainesville, though Texas is also a major player for his services. Harris also has some interest in Oklahoma ad South Carolina, where he'll visit later this month.
