Update: FSU to host three recruits on official visits

FSU coach Mike Norvell and his staff will host three recruits for official visits on the final weekend before National Signing Day, which is next Wednesday.

As recently as Thursday, the Seminoles had planned to bring as many as five prospects in for visits but that changed Friday afternoon. Colquitt County (Ga.) High running back Daijun Edwards announce via Twitter that he had committed to Georgia and will not be making the short trip to Tallahassee, according to a source.

Wide receiver Kris Abrams-Draine from Spanish Fort (Ala.) High School was also scheduled to take an official visit this weekend but according 247Sports that visit has now been canceled as well.

Defensive end/tight end prospect TJ Davis, running back/linebacker DJ Lundy and wide receiver/defensive back Sidney Williams are all still scheduled to make their visits as planned, according to two sources.

Davis, from Metter (Ga.) High, is a prospect who is equally impressive whether he is lined up on offense or defense. He is 6-foot-3 and 230 pounds and is physical and fast. He is extremely physical, plays with effort, is fast and hustles in pursuit. In addition to his offer from the Seminoles, Davis also has offers and has taken official visits to Middle Tennessee, Georgia Tech and Central Michigan.

Lundy, 6-1 and 225 pounds, is a powerful running back/linebacker from Irwin County (Ga.) High School. He is impressive whether he is lined up on offense or defense. He has outstanding feet and runs with balance as a running back and is a physical downhill linebacker and is probably best suited for the defensive side of the ball as a middle linebacker in coordinator Adam Fuller’s 4-3 defense. Lundy has already taken official visits to Georgia and Virginia Tech this month and made an official visit to Vanderbilt in December.

Williams, from Mobile (Ala.) Vigor High, is a prospect who garnered a lot of attention as a junior but missed most of his senior season due to injury, according to 247Sports’ Chris Nee. According to Nee, Williams was brought to the attention of the FSU staff when new defensive backs coach Marcus Woodson left Auburn to join Norvell’s staff. Williams has great size and speed at 6-2 and 190 pounds. He lined up at corner and wide receiver in high school but certainly has the size to develop into a safety in college if he ends up on the defensive side of the ball. Williams also gives Norvell another option at wide receiver if the Seminoles don’t land Malachi Wideman, who is committed to FSU but has taken official visits to Oregon and Tennessee in recent weeks.

Chase Oliver, a safety/linebacker from Ocala (FL) Trinity Catholic High, who has been offered a preferred walk-on spot for next fall, announced on Twitter that he would be visiting FSU this weekend as well. Oliver is listed as 6-2 and 210 pounds. It is not known at this time whether he is taking an official or unofficial visit with the Seminoles.
