FSU football could have a fun year for fans as the team has probably the best wide receiver/tight end depth we have seen in a long time.
Dare I say possibly top five in the nation. These guys could help propel QB Jordan Travis in the Heisman race, as he will have so many weapons on offense. Honestly, this could be the scariest offense we have seen at FSU.
Between the running backs, wide receivers, and tight ends, I don’t see how any team could key on any one position. The options are plentiful for Travis, plus he still has the threat of his legs if he needs it.
Let’s look at the depth Jordan Travis has to throw to:
- Johhny Wilson
- Keon Colemen (Transfer from Michigan State)
- Destyn Hill
- Kentron Poitier
- Winston Wright Jr.
- Hykeem Williams
- Deuce Spann
- Darion Williamson
- Ja’Khi Douglas
- Vandrevius Jacobs
Any of these guys is a starter on most teams, but having all those weapons on one team is scary for any defense. Wilson and Coleman are over 6’4″ and can go up and get a jump ball. Hill intrigues me because he possesses game-changing speed and agility, and Poiter has big play potential. Let’s not forget Wright and Williams, who will also see roles this season. I believe Williams will be a real force in 2024. Spann, Williamson, Douglas, and Jacobs all possess play-making abilities.
- Jaheim Bell
- Kyle Morlock
- Markeston Douglas
- Jerrale Powers
I have only included four guys, but there are others who can step up as well. First, there is Jaheim Bell, and this guy makes plays all over the field. He is not just a check down, but a legit threat anywhere on the field. Transfer Kyle Morlock is another guy who can make plays in the air at 6’7″. Douglas and Powers can make plays, with Douglas emerging late last year. Powers redshirted but has made some plays in fall camp. Having a four-deep depth chart at tight end where all contribute in the passing game is a nice commodity for Mike Norvell and staff.
On paper, the Noles have serious talent all over the field on offense, but they need to show that in games. I believe we will see a more focused Jordan Travis this season, and there is a reason some star players came back this season instead of going to the NFL draft. Will Travis win the Heisman? We hope, but I think he will be in the running with all these weapons at his disposal.
