Jacob McCrary Commits To Florida State Seminoles Over Clemson, Florida

After some premature tweeting, McCray is in.


Mackensie Alexander Makes Surprise Visit To Florida State

Mackensie Alexander, one of the top cornerbacks in the country, has been a tough recruit to follow. Out of Immokalee, Fla., High School, he rarely does interviews, and when he does, he seems to enjoy playing with reporters and having fun with the recruiting process.

Alexander was not expected at the Florida St. Seminoles' camp, as he was at the Alabama Crimson Tide's camp, but then again, it's probably wise to not be surprised by anything Alexander does.

Josh Newberg snapped this photo of Alexander clowning around with Florida State defensive coordinator Mark Stoops:

Previously, Alexander had committed to join the Tennessee Volunteers without ever making a visit to Knoxville. He subsequently decommitted and reopened his recruitment. Florida State has offered his brother, Mackenro, a safety who is considerably less heralded. There is also a question as to the pair making it into school academically, but they have expressed a desire to play together in the past.


Matthew Thomas Says Florida State Leads Over Alabama, Miami

Florida State takes the lead for a talented Miami linebacker recruit.


2015 Recruit Jacques Patrick Now Holds 9 BCS Offers, Visiting Florida State

Jacques Patrick, a national recruit from Orlando Timber Creek High School, has has quite the off-season. The 6'2, 200-pound running back might not remain at that position as he grows, but the fifteen-year old has already shown enough to convince college coaches that he is worth an offer.

Patrick has been on a tour of some of the top colleges recently, and has chronicled his journey via Twitter.

The Orlando runner had a blast at Georgia, but was unable to earn an offer because Mark Richt was out of the office. Patrick expects an offer soon.

His next stop was Alabama, where he posed with the Bear Bryant statue and walked away with an offer from the Crimson Tide.

Wednesday, Patrick stopped in Tallahassee to visit Florida State for the Jimbo Fisher camp. He met FSU running back Devonta Freeman and hung out on campus.

Patrick made the mistake of tweeting "It could possibly end today...," which threw recruitniks for a loop given that Patrick has said he does not plan to make an early decisiion.

When asked about the comment, Patrick said "Oh, that had nothing to do with recruiting. My decision is far in the future, but I may have on school that's standing out next week."

FSU fans believe that school will be Florida State, Patrick's childhood favorite.

Patrick had previously earned offers from Auburn, Arizona, Florida, LSU, Miami, Vanderbilt and UCF.


Jimbo Fisher Football Camp Preview: Top Recruits Visiting Tallahassee

The Jimbo Fisher Football Camp will bring nearly 100 top recruits to Tallahassee Wednesday through Friday. Florida State's coaches will instruct, teach, and of course, evaluate top recruits. Here's a look at the top players Tomahawk Nation analysts will be focusing on at each position.

Bellamy to Seminoles

Davin Bellamy didn’t make it to Tallahassee in time for the Jimbo Fisher Camp as originally planned, but the talented Atlanta (Ga.) Chamblee Carter defensive end will be in Tallahassee Saturday to tour the campus and meet with Florida State’s coaches, he tweeted.

Bellamy is a four-star recruit and a promising defensive line prospect at 6’4 and 230 pounds.

SB Nation Recruiting will attempt to catch up with Bellamy at the conclusion of his visit.


Rashard Robinson Impresses At Jimbo Fisher Camp In Seminole Socks

On a day in which many of the state's elite recruits had not yet arrived for Florida State's Jimbo Fisher Camp, Rashard Robinson was impossible to miss. Wearing an orange helmet and Seminole-branded socks (see image below), the 6'1, 168-pound Robinson was impossible to miss. Florida State's coaches definitely didn't, as defensive coordinator Mark Stoops and head coach Jimbo Fisher watched the Pompano Beach (Fla.) Ely cornerback recruit with great interest.

Despite his height -- tall for a corner -- Robinson showed impressive agility and change of direction during drills. I spoke with Robinson recently during the Heath Evans Foundation Charity 7-on-7 event in Palm Beach, Fla.

Many believe that LSU is the most likely destination for Robinson. The recruit didn't deny that, but also indicated that others have a chance as well. "Florida State, Oklahoma... all my schools have a chance. Whatever schools are the best for me are what I'll go to," Robinson said. "I want to go to a school with a great football program, a great learning environment and a great crowd," Robinson said. "That'll help me be a better man in life and hopefully go to the NFL," he added.

In addition to the Jimbo Fisher Camp, Robinson plans to attend the Al Golden Camp at Miami, where he expects an offer from the Hurricanes. He also plans to camp at LSU, Oklahoma, Ohio State and Tennessee.

Rumors were swirling earlier that Robinson would not qualify for college and would have have better luck enrolling in junior college. He denied those rumors. "Actually, I am going to have a 3.0 GPA for this semester," said Robinson, who started the semester with a 2.2 GPA. Robinson, who took his ACT Saturday, said that the recruitment process opened his eyes to the importance of academics and work in the classroom. He plans to make his decision on National Signing Day.

Ryan Green Looking For The Right Fit

Many one of the state's top prospects will arrive for the Thursday portion of the Jimbo Fisher Football Camp. But one recruit made sure to be there for every minute: Ryan Green of St. Pete (Fla.) Catholic. Green, one of the top running back recruits in the nation, wanted to be sure to be there to support everyone else. "I wanted to be here to support my teammates," Green said. Even though he came out with a large group, Green elected to not work out in the heat. He plans to work out tomorrow instead.

The 5'10, 190 pound running back has been to Tallahassee more times than he can count. "Oh man, I don't even know. A bunch of times. I love it up here," Green said when asked about his previous trips to Florida State.

One of the main draws for Green to Florida State is coach Eddie Gran. "Coach Gran is like a second father figure. I love his spirituality and that he doesn't use profanity. I can trust him and he is about coaching." Green couldn't point to one thing he impressed Coach Gran with. "Everything. I've gotten better in all areas," Green said.

There's some speculation that Green could pull the trigger for the Seminoles while on his visit. He said that he will make a decision "whenever I feel comfortable. I don't have a timetable." The last time SB Nation spoke to Green, his top three schools were Florida State, Florida and Notre Dame.

"That's still my three, but some other teams have jumped in too, like Tennessee and Auburn," Green explained. "I went up there and liked what I saw. They are big time schools and big time football programs with great facilities." Green had just visited Tennessee and Auburn on his way back from a recent trip to Notre Dame.

What will it take for Green to commit to a school? "The right fit. It has to feel right. The academics have to be right. Florida State has shown me that. And Notre Dame has shown me that too. I just have to feel comfortable," said Green, who is looking to study Zoology, Biology or Communications.

Stick with SB Nation for more updates from Ryan Green tomorrow during the Jimbo Fisher Camp.
