Jesus Wilson is part of a trio of rising sophomore receivers that earned valuable experience this spring.
There were a number of injuries this spring, but none that Fisher considers serious enough to keep an FSU player from missing the start of camp in early August. And, for the most part, Fisher was happy with the Seminoles' spring practices.
"Very pleased," Fisher said. "We've got a lot of work to do. But I can picture where we're going to be."
FSU learned a great deal about how the 2014 team will look. Two areas of concern for the fall are at running back (where they lost James Wilder Jr. and 1,000-yard rusher Devonta Freeman) and linebacker (which lost Christian Jones and leading tackler Telvin Smith)
There is depth at receiver, as sophomores Jesus Wilson, Isaiah Jones and Kermit Whitfield saw extensive practice time this spring. At linebacker, Matthew Thomas, Reggie Northrup, Ukeme Eligwe, E.J. Levenberry and Ro'Derrick Hoskins were all praised by Fisher. The defensive backfield will again be one of the nation's best. And Winston, despite at times being mentally and physically tired while juggling two sports, handled his hectic schedule well.
The FSU spring football game was the first played with the new logo. FSU will take the field with redesigned football uniforms on Aug. 30 against Oklahoma State.
