The Florida State coaching office has been busy over the past week, nabbing three commitments. That number increased again Friday when Milton, Fla. wide receiver Isaiah Jones called Jimbo Fisher from 'The Opening' event in Beaverton, Ore. this afternoon to tell him he was ready to be a Seminole.
Milton head coach Chafan Marsh says that his 6-foot-4, 210 pound star did wrestle with the decision between his leaders Auburn and FSU. Marsh said everyone knew about how much Isaiah loved FSU, but it came down to where he was most comfortable and that was FSU.
"It was more than just being a fan. That played a little part, but he just felt as a receiver he can be used a lot of ways and feels FSU right on the cusp of winning or competing for a national title," Marsh said. "He felt comfortable during his visits. In his heart, FSU was the place for him.
Many adjectives can describe Jones' style of play, but Marsh says the fact that the Rivals250 member can play in a lot of different systems and hurt the opposition a number of ways in the passing game makes him a special talent.
"They are getting a tremendous kid and leader first of all. You want have to worry about work ethic as he'll be the first guy in line," Marsh said. "I think on the football field they are getting a physical, but very explosive receiver after the catch. If there was one strength I would say Isaiah has it is how elusive and quick he is after the catch. He just changes the game at anytime because you don't know when he's going to break one."
Florida State remains No. 11 in the overall team recruiting rankings with the commitment, but gains significant ground on teams 4-10 in the standings.
