Florida State offers four-star 2014 OT

Juwann Bushell-Beatty has been offered by Florida State according to this coach Chris Partridge.

Bushell-Beatty has only been playing organized football for two years. This past year was his first as a starter. He helped lead his team to a state championship.

Florida offered the 6-foot-7, 310-pound Bushell-Beatty last week.

I think some schools that have impressed our Penn State and Michigan, but he hasn't been to many schools.

2014 Needs: Tight End

The tight end position at Florida State accounted for 25 receptions for 280 yards and four touchdowns last season. Nick O’Leary’s 21 receptions this past season are the most by a tight end under Jimbo Fisher at Florida State. Their contribution cannot be measured by just receptions though, as they are also utilized as additional blockers in both the run and pass game for the Seminoles. Florida State will likely look to sign one to two tight ends in the 2014 class.


Kerr was Florida State's one addition at the tight end position in the 2013 class.

On the roster: RS SR Dan Hicks, SR Kevin Haplea, JR Nick O’Leary, SO Christo Kourtzidis, FR Jeremy Kerr (incoming)

Needs: 1-2

2014 Commits: None

What FSU looks for at the TE position:

* Size – Florida State tight ends ranged from 6-foot-2 to 6-foot-4 and weighed between 238 and 260 pounds this past season. New addition Jeremy Kerr eclipses those measurements checking in at 6-foot-6, 254-pounds prior to arriving on campus. At the tight end position, Florida State would prefer the size to handle blocking on the edge over a more sleek, athletic tight end.

* Physicality – With responsibilities of picking up edge-rushers in pass protection as well as acting as a sixth lineman in the running game, it is a requirement at the tight end position that you are able to get your hands on a defender and move him off the spot.

* Ability to be a receiver – No matter how large the tight end, Florida State wants a threat in the passing game down the field. Even when a tight end is brought in to be primarily a blocker, it is essential that they are capable of making their way down the field and making a reception if their number is called.

Names to keep an eye on:

TE Chris Laye (6-5, 240) Suwanee, Ga. – Since new tight ends coach Billy Napier was hired, he has checked in on Suwanee (Ga.) Lambert tight end Chris Laye on at least one occasion. Laye does not yet have an offer from the Seminoles, but is attending this weekend’s junior day.

TE Davion Riley (6-3, 210) Lake Wales, Fla. – This past season Riley visited Florida State for a pair of games. He and his family are very familiar with defensive line coach Odell Haggins. He is a bit undersized at tight end, but has major athleticism and upside.

TE Tyler Luatua (6-4, 230) La Mirada, Calif. – Luatua is a national target and considered the early favorite to be the top tight end in the class. He has held an offer from Florida State since May.

With national signing day now beyond us, NoleNation takes a closer look at the next crop of Seminoles.

Vitals: Defensive tackle Keith Bryant (Delray Beach, Fla./Atlantic), 6-foot-2, 292 pounds

Committed: Feb. 6, 2013

ESPN.com grade: 83, four-star prospect

ESPN.com rankings: No. 14 defensive tackle in the country, No. 61 player in Southeast, No. 27 prospect in Florida and No. 135 in the ESPN 150.

Picked Florida State over: Kentucky, Miami, South Carolina and Southern Cal.


Keith Bryant

2013
Signed: Florida State

Pos RkStarsGradeHometown

83Delray Beach, FL
State of the position: In terms of talent, Florida State's defensive tackles are stocked. Five-star recruits such as Timmy Jernigan and Eddie Goldman will play large roles for the Seminoles in 2013. Justin Shanks, Derrick Mitchell and Nile Lawrence-Stample still have plenty of time to come into their own and Demonte McAllister has emerged as one of the best at the position. Jacobbi McDaniel will also be back from a redshirt season and should be healthy and ready to go.

ESPN.com scouting report: Bryant can be a disruptive interior defensive player. He possesses good overall size. While he might need to rework his build some at the next level, he should be able to play comfortably around 300 pounds. He displays a very good initial burst and is capable of disrupting plays by getting quick penetration. ... He can be explosive and can get upfield to blow up plays, but is best as a straight ahead, hard upfield charger and displays more adequate short change-of-direction ability and range. ... His ability to quickly get off the ball and get under blockers' pads can allow him to create pressure with a bull rush, but he needs to keep developing the use of his weapons. Bryant is a good-sized kid who is capable of quickly firing off on the snap off the ball. He needs to keep developing and rounding out his game, but has the tools to be a disruptive presence.

Expected impact: Bryant will likely have a similar impact this season as Goldman did last season. He'll rotate in during mop-up duty early in the season before earning Odell Haggins' trust. There is a chance he could redshirt, but it is probably not the favorite option in the clubhouse. Bryant is capable of holding his weight and then some, but might have to adjust to the Seminoles strength program initially. Down the road, he figures to play a very important role in the Seminoles defensive front.

ACC
State of the Noles: Defensive Tackle
February, 14, 2013

AM ET
By David M. Hale & Corey Dowlar | ESPN.com

Timmy Jernigan should be one of the ACC's elite defenders in 2013.

When it comes to recruiting, coaches need to be thinking long-term. It's not just about which holes must be filled immediately, but rather where the needs might be in two or three more years.

With that in mind, NoleNation writers David Hale and Corey Dowlar are going position by position, looking at what FSU has on its roster now, and who might provide reinforcements down the line, projecting starters and evaluating the depth through 2015.

Up next, a position that will see plenty of turnover in 2013: Defensive tackle.

Current scholarship DTs (8): Jacobbi McDaniel (RSr.), Eddie Goldman (So.), Demonte McAllister (RSr.), Justin Shanks (RFr.), Nile Lawrence-Stample (RSo.), Derrick Mitchell (RSo.), Timmy Jernigan (Jr.), Keith Bryant (Fr.)

Potential early departures: Jernigan already established himself as an NFL prospect in his first two seasons at FSU without holding down the nominal role of starter. He steps into the spotlight in 2013, and he seems like the most likely candidate on the roster to forego his senior season. Down the road, Goldman could blossom into a top-tier prospect as well.

Predicted starters (Hale's picks/Dowlar's picks)
2013: Jernigan, McAllister/Jernigan, McAllister
2014: Goldman, Shanks/Jernigan, Goldman
2015: Goldman, Shanks/Goldman, Shanks

Why they'll start: Jernigan's status is etched in stone, with the only question being how productive he might become in his first season as a full-time starter. Florida State will continue to rotate at tackle, so it may not mean a vast increase in snaps for the talented junior in 2013, but it should vault Jernigan squarely into the discussion as one of the ACC's elite defenders.

If Jernigan's 2013 season goes according to plan, however, it could also be his last in Tallahassee, but that doesn't mean the Seminoles don't have plenty of talent waiting in the wings.

McAllister has a breakthrough season in 2012 (33 tackles, 3.5 sacks) and appears to have the upper hand on the other starting job this spring, but Goldman is clearly the future at defensive tackle. He was a five-star recruit who saw limited action as a freshman (8 tackles, 1 TFL), but his upside is immense. A role similar to what Jernigan has done the past two seasons seems the most likely outcome for 2013, but Goldman's future is bright.

Shanks (6-2, 340) is massive, Bryant arrives with plenty of upside, and Mitchell and Lawrence-Stample offer some unrealized potential, meaning there's plenty of depth at tackle both now and down the road.

All that depth may put McDaniel at something of a disadvantage in his final campaign with FSU. He's got an NFL skill set, but thanks to a gruesome injury in 2011, it's been nearly two years since he played in a game.

Who might FSU add: The Seminoles added a big piece to the defensive tackle puzzle with Bryant (Delray Beach, Fla./Atlantic) for 2013. He fits the consistent mold of top-flight players that have been brought in at the position over the last three years and could contribute very early on in his career.

Looking to the future, Florida State has probably the top defensive tackle in the state for 2014 committed in Demarcus Christmas (Bradenton, Fla./Manatee). He's been named to the ESPN Watch List and will probably have offers from everybody when it is all said and done. They are also after prospects like Kendall Baker (Atlanta/Marist School), Andrew Brown (Chesapeake, Va./Oscar Frommel Smith) and Elisha Shaw (Tucker, Ga./Tucker).

Long-term grade: A. There may not be a position on the roster more stacked now and better prepared for the future than defensive tackle. Jernigan is already a top-flight prospect. Goldman and Shanks could be, too, in another two seasons. Bryant brings potential and Christmas could be a crown jewel in the Class of 2014. FSU has to be thrilled about the potential for greatness at defensive tackle moving forward.

What will 2013 class do?
Depth at defensive back and defensive end could see more action for freshmen

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- For all the hype that surrounds national signing day, the truth is that the bulk of the incoming freshmen won't blossom into impact players for at least another year or two. Based on recent seasons, about half will redshirt, a handful more will see only limited action and only a select few will get regular reps on game day.

So, looking over this year's incoming freshmen, which ones are likely to get the first crack at stardom? NoleNation broke down the class, considering each players talent, skill set and the opportunity for playing time at their position, and made a few educated guesses.

Potential redshirts

[+] Enlarge
Miller Safrit/ESPN
With depth and unproven talent at defensive end, DeMarcus Walker has a chance to earn playing time in 2013.
It's far too soon to say for sure that any members of the Class of 2013 are destined for a redshirt, but for a handful there doesn't appear to be a clear path toward regular playing time at the moment.
Wilson Bell and Ira Denson both arrive with the size to quickly step in on the line, but at this point there's not an obvious job available. Giving offensive linemen an extra year to develop is a nice luxury if FSU can afford it. Ryan Hoefeld seems certain to go that route.

Of the three defensive backs in this year's class, there might not be significant minutes for more than one, meaning Nate Andrews and Marquez White will likely be f!ghting to prove they can make an impact on special teams to avoid a redshirt.

Keith Bryant has the talent to play early, but Florida State is so deep at defensive tackle that a redshirt probably makes sense, with a much bigger role opening up in 2014.

Both tight end Jeremy Kerr and quarterback John Franklin could eventually switch positions, and neither appears to have much playing time on the horizon at their spots.

Playing, but not much
Every season some freshmen get their feet wet on special teams and mop-up duty, laying the groundwork for the future without immediately making a huge impact. This season, Florida State's new crop of linebackers fits that bill.

There's a huge benefit for the Seminoles to get their young linebackers into the mix early, and without much depth at the position that shouldn't be a problem. Still, the starting jobs are in good hands with Telvin Smith and Christian Jones, so that may leave E.J. Levenberry, Ro'Derrick Hoskins and Tyrell Lyons aiming for regular special teams work. Freddie Stevenson could be in a similar spot, but his early enrollment at least gives him a slight leg up.

FSU is deep at receiver this year, making it tough for the freshmen to find much playing time, but the athleticism of Jesus Wilson and Isaiah Jones should get them on the field on special teams at the least.

Instant impact
Ryan Green doesn't have a clear path to a job just yet, and there's plenty of competition for carries in what has the look of another backfield-by-committee for the Seminoles. But while Devonta Freeman and James Wilder Jr. showed in 2012 they can handle the load down the stretch, Green brings a home-run threat to FSU's offense that could be a dangerous weapon. It's far from a guaranteed job for Green, but Chris Thompson's explosiveness was the catalyst for last season's early success in the ground game, and Green could offer something similar in 2013.

The receiving corps is deep for Florida State this season, but Levonte Whitfield has the speed to find a niche both as a slot receiver and an impact player on special teams. It remains to be seen how quickly he can grasp the playbook and nudge his way into the rotation, but if he can work his way onto the field, Whitfield and redshirt freshman Marvin Bracy would provide FSU with perhaps the fastest combination of receivers in the country.

ESPN's NoleNation
Join the discussion about all things Florida State football and recruiting, exclusively for NoleNation fans in Tomahawk Talk.

Matthew Thomas provided FSU with its biggest catch on signing day, and he could step into the lineup and get some reps right away at linebacker. Only Smith and Jones have significant experience at the position, and Thomas could potentially follow in Jones' footsteps, getting his feet wet on the strong side this year before moving to the weakside in 2014 and beyond.
Ronald Darby and Nick Waisome appear to have the starting cornerback jobs locked down, but Jalen Ramsey nevertheless should have a role. Ramsey can make an immediate impact on special teams, but he could also earn a spot in the cornerback rotation, turning in a season similar to what Darby did in a reserve role last season, when he earned Freshman All-American honors.

Perhaps no member of this year's signing class has a better combination of ability and opportunity than DeMarcus Walker. The 6-foot-3, 265-pound defensive end is an early enrollee, and the reps he'll get this spring could be significant, given the lack of depth and experience at the position for FSU. There's a starting job to be won, and although Walker is hardly the favorite, there's no reason to think he can't be in the mix by the time fall practice starts. As the 2012 season showed, depth at defensive end will almost certainly be utilized.

Kentavious Street's top team

By Brent Sobleski | ESPN.com
RECOMMEND0COMMENTS0EMAILPRINT
Defensive end Kentavious Street (Greenville, N.C./J.H. Rose) had multiple prominent offers well before the new recruiting cycle officially began. And he could make a decision where he wants to attend school a year prior to signing his letter of intent during 2014's national signing day.

"I've been waiting on this offer (from Florida State) my whole life, so all the hard work is paying off," Street told Michael Langston of Warchant.com. "I grew up watching (FSU) personally. They were my favorite team growing up. In my area, it's either Georgia fans or Florida State fans and that's how we are. I know all the traditions, the Warchant, the horse, the spear, everything.

"They are my number one school now. I've been waiting so long for this so to have it is unreal."

Aside from being a fan of the program, Street's father played for the Seminoles.

Notre Dame, Clemson, North Carolina, North Carolina State, Tennessee and Virginia Tech have offered Street. Although, Florida State clearly appears to be the team to beat for this defensive end.

TE visiting FSU, hopes for an offer

Suwanee (Ga.) Lambert tight end Chris Laye is among the more than two dozen visitors expected at Florida State’s junior day on Saturday.


Laye has been dealing with Billy Napier over the past month.

“I will be there by Friday night and then I will be there all day Saturday for junior day,” Laye said. “It will be my first time up there so I am looking forward to it.”

The 6-foot-5, 240-pound tight end has been hearing from Florida State since mid-January when new tight ends coach Billy Napier dropped in on him at Lambert.

“Coach Napier has come by my school, I guess it was about two weeks ago,” Laye said. “It was good meeting him. I have gotten to know him and he has gotten to know me.”

Florida State has yet to offer the Peach State prospect. He hopes this weekend gets him one step closer to that offer from Florida State.

“He is glad I am coming for junior day and I will probably have to go there for summer camp, but I think I will be getting pretty close to an offer,” Laye said.

An offer from the Seminoles would mean a lot for Laye.

“It is definitely one of the schools that I want to get an offer from,” Laye said. “I think going up there this weekend is going to be very important. I just really want to get on campus and check everything out. If I like the campus and the academics with knowing they are a great football school, they will definitely be a factor if they do offer.”

Laye claims offers from Boston College, Vanderbilt, and Virginia. He is drawing heavy interest from Oklahoma, Stanford, and Wake Forest.

“Vanderbilt does because it is a great school with great academics, with a nice campus and they are definitely building up their football program,” Laye said. “It would be a great program to be a part of.

“But my options are open,” Laye added. “I am going to just keep looking and trying to find a school that fits me. The first thing for me is academics and the second thing is finding a campus that fits me and third of all is finding a good football program.”

Laye plans to visit Vanderbilt in the next two weeks. He expects to see Boston College and Vanderbilt during spring practice. He will likely camp at Florida State and Stanford over the summer.

FSU shows Miller how he fits

Columbia (S.C.) Spring Valley four-star outside linebacker Christian Miller made his way down to Tallahassee on Friday and spent the day at Florida State.


Miller will now head to Gainesville for a junior day visit.

“It went real good,” Miller said. “I got to talk to the coaches. I hung out with everybody. I got to see everything there. We watched some film and I got to see how I would be used. I also got to see some of the players do their fourth quarter program, offseason stuff. So I got to see a lot.”

The 6-foot-4, 215-pound outside linebacker was shown a great deal of attention by two members of Jimbo Fisher’s staff.

“I spent a lot of time with (tight ends) Coach (Billy) Napier, he is my recruiting coordinator, but I also spent a lot of time with (defensive ends) Coach (Sal) Sunseri, me and him were watching film,” Miller said. “Coach Sunseri showed me a lot of things.”

Miller was very impressed by what he was told, and shown, by Sunseri.

“I guess what surprised me the most was all the stuff they were showing me on film of how they could use me,” Miller said. “They showed me a lot of packages I don’t think I have even seen them use before. It seems like they are throwing in a lot of new stuff. They just showed me how they can use someone like me for pass rush, using my speed, and using very versatile players.

“They like me as an outside backer,” Miller added. “Coach Sunseri was at Alabama so he plans to use me like they used their outside linebackers. They love my pass rushing. That is my strong point. They plan to utilize that as much as they can. I would play outside linebacker but I would be a pass rusher.”

Sunseri made a strong impression upon the Palmetto State defender.

“I like Coach Sunseri a lot,” Miller said. “When we were watching the film he was just showing me a lot of stuff. He seems real experienced. I like that about Coach Sunseri.”

Before the visit concluded, Miller had the opportunity to sit down and speak with head coach Jimbo Fisher.

“We basically talked about a lot of things,” Miller said. “He just told me what he expects from their players. He talked about how they do stuff.”

Florida State made a good enough impression upon Miller that he will likely returning in the next couple of months.

“Possibly this spring, maybe for spring practice,” Miller said.

At this point, the Seminoles are among the early favorites for Miller.

“They are in my top four,” Miller said. “Florida, Florida State, Alabama, and Georgia.

“Florida was standing out but right now I am just going to keep it even until I get to see Florida tomorrow,” Miller added.

Miller, who claims double-digit offers, will visit Gainesville for a junior day on Saturday.

As a junior, Miller recorded 121 tackles, 21 tackles for a loss and 14 sacks.

247Sports.com considers him the No. 97 player overall in the 2014 class. He is the No. 4 outside linebacker in the class and No. 3 prospect from South Carolina.

FSU Junior Day: Star-studded event

Florida State will host their second junior day of February on Saturday when they bring in more than two dozen visitors. Noles247.com takes a look at some of the standouts expected.


Cosentino's visit to Florida State began on Friday.

Offered quarterback already in town

Pittsburgh (Pa.) Central Catholic quarterback JJ Cosentino arrived in Tallahassee on Friday and will check out some things before Saturday’s event. The 6-foot-4, 225-pound quarterback was offered by Florida State in late January. It was his first offer. The offer was extended by new defensive ends coach Sal Sunseri, who also played his high school football at Central Catholic. Cosentino is currently very high on the Seminoles.

Pettway looking forward to visit

Coming off a junior day visit to Auburn, Prattville (Ala.) running back Kamryn Pettway is making his way to Florida State for a junior day visit. Pettway picked up his first offer from Florida State earlier this month. The Seminoles are hoping to make a strong impression and sway Pettway to leave the Yellowhammer State. The 6-foot, 224-pound back has the size Florida State is looking for in at least one of the backs they take in the 2014 class.

Ford checking out his top in-state offer

Jacksonville (Fla.) Trinity Christian three-star wide receiver Isaiah Ford will be in attendance on Saturday. Ford landed an offer from wide receivers coach Lawrence Dawsey back in mid-January. Ford has a dozen offers but the Seminoles are the only one of the ‘Big 3’ to pull the trigger so far. The 6-foot-2, 170-pound wide receiver is relatively open at this stage of the process.

Tight end looking for an offer

Suwanee (Ga.) Lambert tight end Chris Laye is visiting Florida State in hopes of landing an offer from the Seminoles. Laye is being targeted by new tight ends coach Billy Napier. The two have been building a relationship over the past month. Laye currently has offers from Boston College, Vanderbilt, and Virginia. He said an offer from the Seminoles would definitely increase his interest in possibly making Tallahassee his future home.


While just a sophomore, Holland is already a major target.

Good group of linebackers

The strongest group on the defensive side of the ball is the linebackers. Among those expected are Tallahassee (Fla.) Godby four-star Jacob Pugh, Tampa (Fla.) Jesuit three-star Vincent Jackson, and Jacksonville (Fla.) Trinity Christian sophomore Jeffrey Holland. Pugh and Jackson are both in pursuit of an offer from the Seminoles. Holland, despite being just a sophomore, already has been offered by the Seminoles.

Local Flavor

Some local Tallahassee prospects are expected at Florida State on Saturday. In addition to Jacob Pugh, who was already mentioned, a couple of other Tallahassee (Fla.) Godby prospects are expected in three-star safeties Deion Singleton and Tony Fields. Other locals include Tallahassee (Fla.) Lincoln three-star safety Kendall Randolph, Tallahassee (Fla.) Florida offensive lineman Andrew Harrell, Madison (Fla.) Madison County linebacker Brice Hamilton, and Perry (Fla.) Taylor County four-star wide receiver Moral Stephens.

Talented group of underclassmen

While the focus is on helping to a.ssemble the 2014 class, Florida State’s junior day isn’t solely about focusing on rising senior prospects. The weekend is expected to bring in a number of talented 2015 prospects and at least one standout from the 2016 class. With regards to rising juniors, prospects such as Jacksonville (Fla.) Trinity Christian cornerback Kevin Toliver II, an LSU commitment, are expected. From the 2016 class, Jacksonville (Fla.) Trinity Christian running back Jalin Buie is expected to make his way to Tallahassee

Christian Green.
Kelvin Benjamin.
Mario Pender.

I think two of these three will transfer/get kicked out of school. Christian Green wants playing time and is unhappy about last season. Kelvin Benjamin pissed off a lot of the coaches for his comments on twitter following the Orange Bowl, and because he started to get lazy toward the end of the season. Mario Pender is just a malcontent who doesn't appear to have matured. However, there is the feeling that Randy Sanders (if he remains RB coach) can get through to him.

I want to add Bobby Hart to the list, but he is at a position of need so he is safe.

*Passing a long what I was told by a friend who is close to the program.

A couple pics I took today of the indoor practice facility. There's no real way to capture the scale of it in a pic, but it's huge.
