I know the elite players who loved the recruiting attention and did not work out but are there recent examples where it did work out and they reached their sky high potential?
Depends on how you interpret a kid’s recruitment. There are kids that pan out and some that don’t. It has nothing to do with how they handle it. There’s no curse to it. Like anything in life some pan out and some don’t

The South Florida receiver is the mystery, wrapped in a riddle inside an enigma....

If we ever get one of these big time guys to commit, and he commits early... Talk about a white knuckle ride on this board. The late November rumors and sniffing around will be like cats and dogs living together, mass hysteria in these parts.

**if only we could get two big time guys on board in this class. Oh wait, we do.**
This year it’s bizarre. This depth chart is crying out for an alpha dog number 1 type receiver. Surprised one of these 5 star types hasn’t jumped at it.

I agree. With our NIL backing, QB room, and **** depth, there will be no excuse if we whiff on all the top WR1 prospects. This is a very well compensated staff. Of course, if they grab Dickey then we fuccin.

Soooo…….no crystal balls to any of the frontrunners after his tweet?

I guess 247 is just doing what they’re told.

Come on bruh..really???
Why is this so crazy? Idk if you are close to this kid, but it’s career suicide to go to FSU as a WR. This isn’t an opinion, it’s fact.

In the last FIFTEEN years, FSU has only had 3 WRs drafted across 4 different regimes. This was spanning the careers of 3 different 1st round QBs including a Heisman winner.

In the same time frame, they’ve had only 4 WRs over 1,000 yards and two of those came in the same season

“But Keem is a 5*, he different!” Yeah, well FSU has had multiple Top 10 WRs over the years. How did they turn out:

DJ Matthews (4*-WR8) - transferred to IU
George Campbell (5*-WR3) - transferred to WVU
Da’Vante Phillips (4*-WR10) - suspended indefinitely
Ermon Lane (5*-WR3) - switched to S
Travis Rudolph (5*-WR6) - UDFA

Honestly even if you expanded it out to top 15 WRs, it still sucks

He can **** around with his career if he wants to, but there is no disputing that FSU is where WRs go to die

Don't underestimate Rudolph he had a killer career.
