Four-star FSU football running back commit Kameron Davis is considered the second highest-ranked commitment in the Seminoles’ 2024 recruiting class, according to 247Sports’ Composite rankings.

Davis has been committed to Florida State since February 25, 2021. He even posted a graphic on April 15th, informing other programs recruiting him that he was shutting down his recruitment with the Seminoles.

Davis is a supreme talent that the Seminoles cannot afford to lose. The Albany (Ga.) native played quarterback at Dougherty High School even though Florida State is recruiting him as a running back. The talented playmaker stands at 5-foot-10 and 200 pounds. During his junior season, he threw for 2,736 yards and 20 passing touchdowns while also rushing 1,115 yards and 13 rushing touchdowns.

The coaching staff has expressed their interest in adding a second running back prospect in the recruiting class if the right fit presents itself. With four-star Jordan Lyle committing to Ohio State, it seems the two targets to monitor at this time would be four-star Christian Clark and four-star Micahi Danzy.

Clark was offered later in the recruiting cycle by the Seminoles on January 30, 2023. However, the talented running back showed mutual interest in Florida State by unofficially visiting Tallahassee on April 1st. Florida State running backs coach David Johnson returned the favor by visiting his high school (Mountain Pointe High School in Phoenix, Arizona) about two weeks ago.

The Seminoles seem to be in the mix for his recruitment, but USC (May 19-21), Texas (June 16-18), and Georgia (June 23-25) have scheduled official visits with him and are considered serious threats in his recruitment.

Danzy has been a running back prospect that the Seminoles have been on for quite some time, as they offered him on June 5, 2022. During his junior season, he made a name for himself, rushing for 1,809 yards and 17 touchdowns.

Being a Tallahassee (Fl.) native, he has made it a common occurrence to visit the hometown team as he has visited Florida State six times since being offered. Florida State seems to sit in a good position with his recruitment. However, both of the Seminoles’ arch-rivals Miami and Florida, have offered the talented running back this spring.

Personally, it seems as though Danzy is the more attainable prospect between the two.
