Miami And USF After Florida State Commitment Ro'Derrick Hoskins

Hoskins' recruitment is picking up.

Florida State linebacker recruit Ro'Derrick Hoskins had quite the surprise waiting for him when he came from school Monday: seven letters from in-state suitors. The photo posted to his Facebook account shows five letters from the University of Miami and two from South Florida.

Hoskins plays for Orlando (Fla.) Evans High School, and is the teammate of fellow Florida State commitment Tony Stevens, a receiver. Hoskins's Rivals and 247sports pages do not list any additional offers, but his recruitment has certainly picked up after the previously unheralded linebacker committed to Florida State in late February.

Why are schools interested in Hoskins? It's a combination of his 6'3", 215-pound frame with room to grow and his excellent athleticism. Hoskins is raw as a prospect and will need a good amount of coaching before he is going to be anything more than a special teams contributor, but college coaches absolutely like his physical tools and potential. Hoskins is currently a consensus three-star recruit, but that could change with an impressive summer camp and combine season as well as a strong senior year.

Despite the interest from Miami and USF, Hoskins says that he has no scheduled visits anytime soon. He will also be unable to make it to the Florida State spring game on April 14, as he will be taking the ACT.
