Florida State Recruiting: 7 Players to Watch in High School All-Star Games
The future of Florida State may be on your TV screen in the coming week, as potential Seminoles take part in nationwide high school All-American games, the biggest two being the Under Armour All-American Game on Jan. 2 and the U.S. Army All-American Bowl on Jan. 4.
It's a mix of committed 'Noles and players who are being heavily recruited to be 'Noles, and they'll all be together on the same field trying to show the nation why they're the best of the best in high school football.
Here are the top seven players to keep an eye on as the week goes by.
Dalvin Cook, the five-star recruit from Miami Central, will be a running back on Team Nitro during the Under Armour game.
He is FSU's No. 1 priority right now, since he is the kind of running back who can make an impact instantly, especially with the possibility of James Wilder Jr. and Devonta Freeman leaving early for the NFL.
Kain Daub is the fourth-ranked linebacker in the class of 2014, and FSU already has his commitment to come play football in Tallahassee.
A physical specimen at 6'3" and 243 pounds, Daub is one of the top players in Florida State's recruiting class and will be a member of Team Highlight in the Under Armour All-American Game.
Treon Harris, four-star quarterback/athlete commit from Booker T. Washington in Miami, Fla., will suit up for the East in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl.
Harris has been a Florida State commit since July, and is a dynamic athlete. Because he's on the shorter side, there has been some talk of a potential move to wide receiver or corner because of his athleticism.
Marlon Humphrey, five-star cornerback hailing from Birmingham, Ala., will be play in the Under Armour All-American Game, wearing No. 26 for Team Highlight.
He won't announce his decision until February, where most expect him to commit to Alabama, but Florida State is pushing hard to get a commitment from the 6'1", 175-pound defensive back.
Jacob Pugh is one of the more underrated guys in the class of 2014, emerging on the scene as his senior season unfolded.
He's ranked as the No. 5 linebacker in the country. The man-child, at 6'4", 224 pounds, can get after the quarterback and lay a good hit.
He'll sport No. 16 for Team Highlight in the Under Armour All-American Game.
Lane is the No. 3 wide receiver in the 2014 class. The Florida Gators hold a commitment from him.
He's best friends with Dalvin Cook, and it's been speculated that if one flips to Florida State, the other may follow suit. Lane will wear No. 1 for Team Nitro in the Under Armour game.
Malachi Dupre, a five-star receiver from New Orleans, is the second-ranked receiver in the 2014 class, and by most guesses will be playing for the LSU Tigers come fall.
Florida State is making a last-ditch effort to try to recruit him, as the 6'2", 187-pound receiver will head to Tallahassee for an official visit in January.
He'll wear No. 15 for Team Nitro in the Under Armour All-American Game.
