Recruits React: Miami-FSU

Stefan Adams
The Canes played host to over 50 of the area’s top prospects at Hard Rock Stadium on Saturday and the recruits were treated to a show, as Miami came back to beat the arch-rival Florida State Seminoles in thrilling fashion, scoring 21 unanswered points in the second half to down the Noles, 28-27. While an entire list of the attendees can be found here, we were able to catch up with a few of the players after the fact, and they shared their thoughts on the experience from their eyes.
