Florida State Commits And Targets Shine In The Under Armour Game

There was plenty to like from the Under Armour game if you are a FSU fan. We break it down here.

There were a number of Florida State commits and targets that played well in the Under Armour game, but none shined brighter than quarterback Malik Henry. Henry finished the game 9-12 for 75 yards and two touchdowns. He was clearly the best quarterback on the field for either team, and had complete control of the offense. His ball placement and decision making were exceptional.

On defense Levonta Taylor locked down the Armour receivers. He was thrown at infrequently, and when he did he showed exceptional closing speed and great instincts. He was also the punt returner for team highlight, and showed off why Florida State fans are so excited to have him. He returned two punts for close to 60 yards including a 41-yard return. 

Baveon Johnson started at center for team highlight, and was consistently able to get a good push against some talented defensive linemen. His snaps were good, and he showed why he is one of the top centers in the country.

Landon Dickerson was one of the few bright spots for Team Armour during the game. Dickerson was one of the few Armour linemen that were able to block the Highlight defensive linemen. He was at his best when he was pulling, opening up hole after hole as he got to the second level.

Kicker Ricky Aguayo made two field goals, and all three of his extra points. 

Linebacker Dontavious Jackson was one of the top two or three linebackers on the field for the game. He was consitently around the ball, and tackled well.

The quarterbacks for Team Armour really struggled to throw the ball consistently and Nate Craig-Myers was only able to make one catch for the game, but he showed what makes him so highly rated on that catch. Craig-Myers caught the pass, gave a little shake, and raced up the sideline for an 18-yard reception.
