2017 ATH Deejay Dallas Feels Wanted By FSU

2017 athlete Deejay Dallas took a visit to Florida State on Saturday, and came away feeling like a priority for the Seminoles.

Glynn Academy (Ga.) Brunswick 4-star athlete DeeJay Dallas visited Tallahassee for Florida State's junior day on Saturday. The versatile athlete's recruitment has picked up lately, and Florida State is one of the schools showing heavy interest.

Dallas enjoyed his visit.

"I enjoyed it," Dallas said. "It was fun."

Dallas decommitted from Georgia after the Bulldogs fired now Miami coach Mark Richt. He's taking recruiting slower the second time around.

"Like I told everyone else it's still wide open," Dallas said. "No real leader right now."

The Florida State coaching staff made every effort to let Dallas know what they thought of his ability.

"Coach Fisher told me that I was one of the most exciting players he's ever seen," Dallas said. "So that really stood out to me... It made me feel pretty good about myself. If you've got a national championship coach telling you that you must be something special."

They also let him know where they want him to play for the next few years.

"He asked me a question," Dallas said. "He was like,' Where do you want to play?' and I was like everybody asks me that. He was like,' Well I know where I want you to play.' I was expecting him to say receiver or DB or something along that lines, but he was like,' Tallahasse.' And I was like, that's kind of funny, but I can play whatever they need me to play."

Florida State is recruiting him as an athlete, and they will find a position for him if he comes to Tallahassee.

"I like that feeling," Dallas said. "It doesn't matter what position they're recruiting me as. They just want me on their team."

Dallas is rated as the No. 22 athlete and No. 258 player overall in the 2017 Scout 300.
