FSU football coaches are looking to add the best players possible, to get the program back to where it’s supposed to be.
The wide receiver position is an area the Noles need to continue building with talent and depth.
FSU football has two wide receiver commitments for the 2022 recruiting cycle, and potentially three if Travis Hunter plays on the offensive side of the ball.
The Noles made the final six list of schools for three-star wide receiver Marcus Peterson Saturday night.
He announced his list via his Twitter account:

Peterson checks in at 6’4″ and 200 pounds and is considered the No. 690 ranked player nationally, No. 38 tight end, and the No. 89 player in Florida.
Peterson is the teammate of 2021 commit Shyheim Brown and coached by former Nole Brian Allen. Allen said Peterson is one of the most talented players he’s ever coached at Lake City HS in Florida.
Peterson has 33 offers from FSU, UCF, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Kansas, Kentucky, Ole Miss, LSU, Georgia, Louisville, Tennessee, Georgia Tech, Arkansas, South Carolina, Miami, Penn State, Maryland, Boston College, and many smaller schools.
There are no 247 Sports Crystal Ball Predictions at this time, but Peterson expects to attend FSU’s spring game next week, according to Noles247.
The Noles offered Peterson in November 2020, and it’ll be interesting to see how this recruitment shakes out. FSU is in the mix for several other 2022 blue-chip recruits, and the two FSU commits are of slighter frames.
Peterson represents a big, physical receiver who’ll likely be raw because he plays several positions for his high school.
He won’t be able to glean too much from Shyheim Brown since he hasn’t enrolled at FSU yet. However, the Noles getting him on campus next week is a solid sign of his interest level other than making his final.
