This was going to be a big recruiting weekend for Florida State. It certainly was on Saturday as four-star offensive tackle Qae’shon Sapp committed to the Seminoles.
The 6-foot-5, 320-pound Sapp is considered the No. 32 player in Georgia and the No. 35 offensive tackle in the nation.
Sapp has made two visits to FSU’s campus in the last three weeks, including coach Mike Norvell’s Elite Camp. At that camp, Sapp worked out with offensive line coach Alex Atkins and was impressive in drills.
“He is a big-bodied kid and that is what FSU needs,” Osceola recruiting analyst Charles Fishbein said. “When guys his size show up to camps you want to make sure they can move. Sapp showed his lateral quickness in pass rush drills. He can play some tackle but his best position in college will be guard.”
“He is going to come off the ball and drive his guys backwards,” continued Fishbein. “He has the ability to run block very well. He does a good job of getting on his defender and finishing the block. Sapp will benefit from time in a college strength and conditioning program. If he takes advantage of that combined with his potential he could turn into a very good lineman at the major college level.”
Sapp chose FSU after taking official visits to Cincinnati and Florida as well as an unofficial visit to Auburn. You can watch some of Sapp’s highlights on Hudl here.
The commitments from Sapp and Kanaya Charlton give FSU now 12 commitments for the 2022 class. Sapp, Charlton and Aliou Bah give the Seminoles three offensive linemen in the class.
