FSU lands two gems from Georgia; 'Noles now have 19 commitments
The FSU football team took two more steps in filling out its 2017 signing class with the commitments of Georgia teammates Tamorrion Terry and Ontaria Wilson. They bring the Seminoles’ current total to 19 commitments with less than three weeks remaining until National Signing Day.
Here is more on Terry and Wilson:
FSU lands one of their top WR targets with Terry
Florida State has been known to utilize big wide receivers, and one of the quickly rising prospects out of Georgia is 2017 Ashburn (Ga) Turner County WR Tamorrion Terry, who landed one of the key offers he coveted recently when the Florida State Seminoles jumped on board. Terry didn't take long to accept that offer, and he has now committed to the Seminoles.
The 6-foot-4, 205-pound Terry might not be well known in the major recruiting circles around the country, but he recently finished an amazing senior season in which he had over 1,000 yards and 19 touchdowns. He also averages over 25 yards per catch.
Terry had offers from Georgia and Florida before the Seminoles came through. He also was recruited by Auburn and others.
“I've liked them (the ‘Noles) for a long time,” Terry told Warchant.com. “I like how the coaches are with the players and also their ability to use bigger receivers. So this one is big. I committed to FSU. This is where I've wanted to be.”
As far as on the field, Terry pretty much did it all for the Turner County Rebels. He rushed for two touchdowns to go with his 19 receiving touchdowns.
DB/ATH Wilson jumps on board with the 'Noles
Florida State certainly did its homework in finding a hidden gem in DB/WR Ontaria Wilson, who had zero offers from Power Five schools until the ‘Noles offered in January. Like his teammate Terry, Wilson didn’t wait to jump on board.
"FSU was a big offer for me and I really like what they do with their defensive backs and playmakers,” the 6-1, 160-pound Wilson said. “I knew that was all I needed to see, and I committed to Florida State. I'm excited and I can't wait to get there.”
While Wilson did a little bit of everything for Turner County, defense seems to be his calling card. Wilson led his team with five interceptions, including a 100-yard interception return for a touchdown in the first round of the playoffs.
"It doesn't matter to me what side of the ball, I just want to make plays,” he told Warchant. “FSU likes me a lot at cornerback, so I'm ready to get to work.”
Wilson also runs track in the 400 and 200, so it's possible he could do that while at FSU.
