FSU football was one of the final seven schools to make the list for Jermaine Eskridge, one of the top receivers and athletes in the 2018 class.
It seems that in the six weeks since National Signing Day for 2017, we have spent plenty of time talking about the future recruiting classes for FSU football as much as we did about the last group. That trend will continue with the news this week that the Seminoles are still in the running for one top athlete in the 2018 class.
Jermaine Eskridge, a four star receiver from Tampa’s Jefferson High School, gave the recruiting world his seven schools that he is considering for his college career. Eskridge, who has been committed to several schools already in his young career, included both the ‘Noles and one hated rival:
Florida State Seminoles Football
Ironically, Eskridge didn’t include either of the schools he has been committed to previously – Kentucky and South Florida – in his list of finalists. He is rated as the 16th best player at his position and the 44th best player in the entire state of Florida at this point.
At this point, 247 Sports has it as a dead split between schools like Florida, Oregon and Ohio State – three of his finalists – with the Gators being the favorite at this point and the Ducks making a late move with the hire of former USF head coach Willie Taggert leading their program now.
FSU football will have their work cut out to convince Eskridge that the right move is to come from Tampa and join the Seminoles family. However, another season of watching Deondre Francois under center might help do the trick in convincing him that Tallahassee is the place to be.
