Florida State assistant coach Lawrence Dawsey has already put together a strong 2014 wide receiver class with South Florida prospects C.J. Worton and JoJo Robinson. On Sunday morning, the 'Noles added to that impressive haul by landing another target, four-star receiver Markell Pack of Purvis, Miss.
Pack's recruitment was trending towards Florida State ever since the hire of tight ends coach Tim Brewster. Pack decided to end the recruiting process Sunday and join the Seminole family.
"I told Coach Brewster I'm ready to pull trigger and commit and he was very excited about it. I called Coach Fisher and he was very happy about the decision too," said Pack.
Relationships were a big part of Pack's commitment to FSU. The same type of relationship aided FSU when Jeremy Pruitt was hired. Demarcus Walker's commitment was aided by a tight bond with Jeremy Pruitt, who Walker trusted. Pack had those same feelings when talking about Brewster, who he's known from the very start.
"I've just been giving other schools a chance to take a shot at me, but just could not wait any longer and wanted to pull the trigger," he said. "I just loved the coaching staff and how straight forward they were. I think it's a great fit."
The 6-foot-3, 180-pound Pack is the 10th commitment in the 2014 class for the Seminoles. As a junior, Pack caught 44 passes for 770 yards and five touchdowns. He also finished with over 1,200 all-purpose yards for Purvis High.
