Speedy wide receiver Bracy heads to Florida State

Posted by Bryan Fischer

There's football speed and there's track speed. Some players have one but not the other. Orlando (Fla.) wide receiver Marvin Bracy has both and he'll be running around Tallahassee in the future after making his commitment to Florida State Thursday afternoon.

"I picked FSU because that was the school I honestly felt comfortable with from the very beginning," Bracy told Warchant.com. "I have a great relationship with the entire staff and I know for both football, track I can make a solid impact."

Bracy chose the school over his other finalists Texas A&M, LSU and Florida.

"FSU has everything. I couldn't ask for a more perfect fit for me," he said. "From the very start FSU offensive line coach Rick Trickett treated me as a person so we developed a strong bond. Every time I was there for a visit I didn't want to leave."

The 5-foot-10, 165-pound Bracy is one of the fastest players in the country and will run track and play football for Florida State. He is the Seminoles 14th commitment and, surprisingly, is their first wide receiver in the upcoming class.

Florida State grabs 2013 offensive lineman

Posted by Bryan Fischer

While a good number of schools around the country are looking for their first commitment in the class of 2012, Florida State added their first for the class of 2013 Sunday night in Pratville (Ala.) offensive linemen Austin Gholson.

“I was at FSU on Thursday," Gholson told Noles247.com. "When I got home I talked it over with my parents and we decided it was time to do it.”

While it is somewhat unusual for sophomores to verbally commit to schools, Gholson is one of the top players in the state of Alabama and was receiving interest from several schools very early in the process. Despite the fact that he won't enroll for over two years, the 6-foot-6, 275 pound Gholson decided to go ahead and commit.

“I called (offensive line coach Rick) Trickett first, he didn’t answer so I called (recruiting coordinator Dameyune) Craig,” Gholson said. “Then they put Jimbo Fisher on the phone. He congratulated me and said he was glad to have me commit.”

The Seminoles have seven commitments for the class of 2012, none of which is an offensive lineman.
