Bobby Bowden and the Florida State
Seminoles went from three to six commitments in a matter of hours earlier this week.
They had been stuck on three commitments for just about three months until June 22 when not, not two, but three talented prospects out of the Sunshine State gave their pledge to the Noles.
Scout gives you their take on each new commitment here...
Breaking Down the new FSU Seminoles
The first thing that jumps out about Barnes is his athleticism. He moves very well for a guy at his size. He plays light on his feet, he can get up field quickly, and he pursues the ball well. He really needs to work on strength, playing lower, and getting off blocks. He uses his pure strength and size to throw smaller offensive linemen to the side now, but he will go against bigger and stronger linemen in the ACC. The size and athleticism is there and that can't be taught, so once he gets better fundamentally, the Noles could have themselves a good defensive lineman.
: Johnson is a wiry wide receiver that some may think is too small to play at Florida
State. That is not true. He is slippery, he is cat-quick, and he is tough. Johnson does indeed need to add weight and get stronger, but he will take speed and elusiveness to Tallahassee. He is really dangerous in the open field and he has good hands as well. Route running, not getting jammed at the line, and blocking are things he'll need to work on when he gets to FSU, but he can help them early on reverses, returns on special teams, and quick passes.
