Which 2014 Targets...
...would you most like to see join this class??
We are off to a great start, the type of talent we are taking this early is awesome.
QB - Will Grier
WR - Ryeshene Bronson
DT - Travonte Valentine
DB - Duke Dawson
Travonte Valentine has a chance to depart this class... but he hasn't yet! I think the other 3 are locks, especially our most recent, Duke Dawson. Having guys like this at the head of the class should be interesting when it comes to recruiting... a la Nick Washington, this year. I Would love to know the names of the some of the kids they think we should be recruiting.
My votes are pretty clear for OL... All the talk about OT Denzel Ward has made me a fan... Huge kid. His highlight tapes are impressive... He pushes kids 10-15 yards down the field. Last time I saw something like that was Joe Thomas... BUT Thomas did it on the NCAA level. Hope Ward can hang in the SEC, if he does, wow. I'd really like OT KC McDermot, but I think Miami is going to snag him. OL Corey Martinez, I think, is our best in-state inside-OL target. OG Travaris Dorsey may be an option, he's been to FNL... Hopefully, if he has shown some improvement from last year's FNL, I think he'll get an offer.
For Defense, I really like Buck/LB Bryson Allen-Williams... I think pulling him is fairly realistic. Stealing Buck/LB Denzel Ware from FSUcks would be pretty outstanding... would be nice for our staff to start doing that now with all their staff turnover. He visited one of our games this past season and may visit again and he does show a lot of interest in Florida. DB/WR JC Jackson is also looking like another FSUcks flip that is very possible/likely. And why stop there, really, DT DeMarcus Christmas is one of the best in-state DT's. All the guys who recruited him are gone, I believe.
Travonte Valentine is a little flaky, but if we can manage to hold on to him for a few more months, I think he'll stick through-out. DT Khairi Clark would be another fantastic pull. Kid is another huge DT prospect.
I would say that Valentine, Christmas, and Clark are the best DT's in the state and the latter are the most likely targets of this class. I think Clark is the best, talent-wise.
