The Fourth of July has already passed, but FSU football continues to generate “fireworks” on the recruiting trail, where they have secured six commitments in the month of July.
On Saturday afternoon, the Seminoles added to that commitment total, where four-star running back Micahi Danzy from Florida State University School in Tallahassee elected to stay home over schools such as Florida, Miami, and UCF.
While FSU already had four-star running back commit Kameron Davis in their class, they wanted to bring in a speedy back like Danzy to complement his skillset. During his junior season, he accumulated over 1,800 yards and 17 touchdowns. Danzy also has blazing speed, with a 10.61 in the 100-meter dash.
It is also worth mentioning redshirt junior Trey Benson could elect to test his talents in the NFL at the end of the 2023 season if he performs well.
This development could allow both committed running back prospects to have an opportunity to play early in their respective careers.
In terms of Danzy’s recruitment, he officially visited Florida State during the loaded June 23rd weekend. During the exit meetings with various members of the media, he named the Seminoles his number one school.
While it might have appeared to be a slam dunk recruitment with Danzy being from the Tallahassee, FSU has struggled keeping homegrown talent in the garnet and gold.
This recruitment win is a huge statement by the coaching staff in changing the narrative of keeping Tallahassee prospects in Florida (specifically at Florida State).
Running backs coach David Johnson continues to acquire highly-touted prospects in his position room. The future looks extremely bright for Florida State at the running back position.
With the pickup of four-star Micahi Danzy, the Seminoles have 18 commitments and rank No. 10 in the 247Sports’ Composite rankings.
