FSU football coaches are still hard at work evaluating players for its 2021 recruiting class. Their latest offer is from Georgia.
FSU football coaches continue to search under every rock to find a hidden gem to fill its needs in the 2021 recruiting class.
The Noles still have a need at the linebacker position with the three commits in Branden Jennings, Jordan Eubanks, and Dequaveon Fuller. Though, I’m not sure all three commits stick as one wasn’t recruited by the current staff.
FSU coaches extended an offer to a three-star linebacker in Thomas Davis.
He announced the offer via his Twitter account:
— Thomas Davis (@Itstdamove) June 29, 2020
He checks in at 6’ 2.5″ and 223 pounds and is considered the No. 858 ranked player nationally, No. 50 WDE, and No. 77 player in Georgia according to 247 Sports.
Davis hails from Lowndes High School in Valdosta, Georgia, where Nole standouts Greg Reid and Telvin Smith.
Davis looks to play a hybrid role of linebacker and defensive end in college and holds 14 offers from the likes FSU, Miami, South Carolina, Mississippi State, Arkansas, Indiana, and several non-Power Five schools.
He initially committed to Mississippi State in April 2020 before de-committing in June. Miami holds 100 percent (4 votes) of the 247 Crystal Ball Predictions for him at this time. However, those votes came mostly in early June after he de-committed and obviously before the FSU offer.
I think FSU’s history with Lowndes would have some pull as the Noles have historically done well in that part of Georgia.
Davis also runs tracks and was the Region 1-7A Defensive Player of the Year in 2019 with 11.5 sacks while playing both offense and defense. I don’t care how many stars he has or doesn’t have, this guy looks like a ballplayer that’s aggressive with a high motor.
My only question is, why did it take so long to find him with him being in close to Tallahassee? He plans to announce his commitment on August 24, so the Noles have work to do.
