Florida State Nabs Top 5 Recruits on Signing Day
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — National champion Florida State added two highly touted receivers and one of the top running backs in the country to the roster on national signing day. The Seminoles put together another highly ranked recruiting class and brought in plenty of offensive talent to surround Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston.
Both Rivals.com and Scout.com ranked the Florida State class No. 4 in the country while ESPN ranked it No. 3.
Receivers Ermon Lane (6-foot-3, 200 pounds) and Travis Rudolph (6-2, 190), will join already-enrolled running back Dalvin Cook, Florida’s 2013 Mr. Football, as the next wave of offensive skill players at Florida State. Rudolph is ranked the No. 1 receiver by Rivals.com while Lane is rated a five-star recruit by both Rivals.com and Scout.com.
The Seminoles also signed seven offensive linemen.
