Monday's Camp update

Monday's session included a surpise commitment from OL Sergio Render and some physical play from a sleeper DB and WR out to prove himself. John Demps (right) impressed. Find out more.

Other than about half a dozen standouts, the turnout at the second session has been somewhat of a disappointment.

John Demps has the eyes of the coaching staff and is by far the most impressive athlete at the camp. Demps ran a 4.59 yesterday. I talked with him and, like many other prospects, he said that he got along well with Kevin Steele. He worked out at LB but has the frame to grow into a DE at the next level where he can better utilize his pass rushing talents.

"I wasn't able to go to the UF camp and I'm not going to the LSU camp," Demps said. "This is it. This is my last camp."

Cameron Sexton took part in some passing drills this morning but did not work out in the afternoon session. Sexton said he will throw with the FSU team after their conditioning workout is over and will also throw in the morning.

Lewis Murphy met with the coaching staff and was a standout in the afternoon session. After dropping the first two passes that came his way, Murphy made good on about 7 or 8 other tries. The 6-3 195 WR was more physical than advertised and had little trouble getting separation from defenders. He also lined up at corner for a few plays. He said that he's good friends with Avery Atkins of Mainland and that they talk often.

Kevin Dickson, a 6-2 265-pound DL prospect, generated some interest with his efforts today. Dickson has offers from Auburn, Louisville, Clemson and UCF. A source said that, should Dickson be offered, he would play DT at FSU. Dickson is currently an end and a tackle on offense.

CB Jamie Robinson from Rock Hill (S.C.) Northwestern met with Bobby Bowden but has no offer yet. The staff was impressed with his physical play and feels he has the tools to play rover.

Look out for more news later.
