Florida State Standing Out To 2018 Offensive Lineman Jamaree Salyer

Florida State is standing out to one of the top prospects from the 2018 class after his visit.

Atlanta (Ga.) Pace Academy 2018 offensive tackle Jamaree Salyer took his second visit to Florida State on Saturday for the Miami game. Salyer came down to Tallahassee in June for the Florida State Big Man Camp, and he was one of the most impressive offensive linemen there.

Salyer really enjoyed his visit to Florida State, and the atmosphere played a big part in that.

"It was great," Salyer said. "I had a lot of fun. The atmosphere was wild! My type of wild though. I could feel the energy walking through the crowds, in the streets, and even just sitting in the stands."

Salyer was able to talk to offensive line coach Rick Trickett before warmups on Saturday.

"He just asked who we played the previous night and said he was glad we could make it," Salyer said. "He said just to enjoy the game."

The Florida State offensive line had their best performance of the season so far, and it really impressed Salyer how well they ran the zone blocking scheme.

"They had the zone scheme down to a science," Salyer said. "They made Dalvin Cook look like a Heisman candidate. We run a similar scheme at our school so it would be nice to play in a scheme like that, but I'm pretty open to most schemes."

Salyer holds double digit offers already. Five of those schools have been coming after him the hardest.

"Clemson, Florida State, Georgia, Tennessee, and South Carolina are recruiting me the hardest," Salyer said.

The 6-foot-4, 305-pound offensive tackle has already been named one of the few 4-stars in the 2018 class, and will likely be in the initial 2018 Scout 100.
