Florida State recruiting: Jimbo Fisher football camp preview

Streeter Lecka

The June session of Florida State's Jimbo Fisher Football Camp starts tomorrow and runs through Friday. Tomahawk Nation will be there to provide all your free recruiting coverage. Many of the top players in the state, and from the Southeast will be in attendance.

The first session of the camp is Wednesday at 3:30. Thursday's sessions are at 9:30 and 12:30. Friday's final session is at 9:30.

Here are some of the top players at each position we'll be watching at the camp. Note that players often show up unannounced, or cancel with little notice because they're unable to catch a ride.


J.J. Cosentino. Cosentino is Florida State's QB commitment for the 2014 class out of Pittsburgh (Pa.) Central Catholic. I saw Cosentino recently and he looked good, with a nice build and solid mobility. I'm sure Jimbo Fisher can't wait to work with him on Friday.

De'Andre Johnson. Johnson, out of Jacksonville (Fla.) First Coast, is FSU's QB commitment for 2015. I want to see if he has grown at all (was 6'0 when I saw him in Orlando for a camp in the spring).

Running Back

Aeris Williams, a very solid running back out of West Point (Ms.) High School. Williams is 6'1, 210, and holds offers from Ole Miss, Mississippi State and Wisconsin. Coach Tim Brewster, formerly of Mississippi State, is the connection and is recruiting Williams hard. Williams would be a take if he wants to commit this week.

Wide Receiver

Markell Pack is expected to attend. Pack is an explosive receiver commitment out of Mississippi. He also said that FSU was "50-50" with Ole Miss, which set many Florida State fans into a panic.

FSU commitments JoJo Robinson, of Miami Northwestern, and C.J. Worton, of Homestead (Fla.) South Dade High School, should both be there. Robinson is committed to Florida State, but most feel he will eventually flip to Miami. Worton insists he is solid to Florida State, despite Miami's attempts to sway him.

I know that Florida State wants to get five-star Ermon Lane, of Homestead (Fla.) High School up to camp, but I am not sure that he will make it. I'll believe it when I see it.

Tight End

Mavin Saunders, an athletic tight end out of the Houston (Tx.) Kinkaid School. Florida State was on Saunders very early, and now others like Ohio State and Oklahoma have jumped in. He is Bahamian, and playing in Florida would be attractive. Do not be surprised if he commits soon to the Seminoles.

Offensive Line

Florida State needs numbers on the offensive line, and it is expected to have several top prospects visit.

Corey Martinez, of Tampa (Fla.) Catholic is a very good guard prospect, and is expected to make the trip. FSU is in his top group, and this is a battle with Miami.

Frank Ragnow, of Chanhassen (MN) is also expected. Ragnow is a tackle who also holds offers from Arkansas, Michigan State and Cal, among others.

Ethan Frirth is a sleeper tackle out of Mississippi who is being recruited by Tim Brewster. He currently does not claim any other offers, and FSU was on him very early. Can he play? I'm interested to see how the 6'7, 325-pounder moves.

Josh Allen, of Jacksonville (Fla.) University Christian is a solid offensive line recruit with offers from North Carolina and Georgia. He is very high on the Tar Heels, who traditionally recruit Jacksonville very well.

Florida State fans are probably wondering if five-stars Damian Prince and Roderick Johnson will attend? They'll be at Florida State in June, but will not camp.

Defensive Line

Florida State is looking for at least two more commitments to go with its current pair of Blake McClain and Demarcus Christmas, both of whom should be in Tallahassee this week, though I am not sure if Christmas will camp or simply hang out.

I am very excited to see four-star defensive tackles Thomas Holley, of Brooklyn (N.Y.) Abraham Lincoln High School, and Lamont Gaillard, of Fayetteville (NC) Pine Forest High School. Both have scores of BCS offers. Arthur Williams, of Fayetteville (NC) E.E. Smith High School holds a Miami offer, and could also play offensive tackle.

Rashaad Kennion, of Jacksonville (Fla.) First Coast is interesting at 6'7 and 225 pounds. Auburn insiders raved about him last week, and he is currently committed to Cincinnati.


Florida State commitment Kain Daub, of Jacksonville (Fla.) Sandalwood High School is one of the best in the country and will be competing against those trying to pass him up. 2015 Sherrod Pittman, of Jacksonville (Fla.) First Coast, is also expected.

Defensive Back

Trey Marshall, the excellent safety out of Lake City (Fla.) Columbia High School is expected. Florida State is in good position for his commitment. Four-star Kendall Gant, of Lakeland (Fla.) Lake Gibson should also be there, as should 2015's Derwin James, the five-star 2015 commitment out of Auburndale (Fla.) Senior High School.


The Norcross (Ga.) High School pair of Lorenzo Carter (five-star defensive end) and Myles Autry (four-star) will not camp, but Florida State coach Charles Kelly has been working hard on the pair, and they should be visiting after the camp.
