Antone Smith
(Pahokee HS)
5-8/185/4.30 Yes 1/28 
Notes: Scout.com's No. 3 rated running back in the country is tearing up his senior year with over 2,000 yards rushing.    Auburn is the team to beat followed by FSU, Miami and Florida.   Smith and his good friend would like to play college ball together and the Seminoles will get last crack at both of them.   I would give the Noles a 20% chance of signing him.
Russell Ball
(La Marque HS)
5-8/165/4.39 Yes  1/21 Committed to FSU.
Notes: Last spring Ball gave the Seminoles a verbal offer.  However, he'll take a few official visits to make sure.  The Texas standout missed all of his senior season with a partial tear of the ACL.  As a junior, he rushed for over 1,200 yards.  I give the Noles around a 75 % chance of signing of Ball.

Fred Rouse
(Lincoln HS)
6-3/187/4.40 Yes  1/28

6-0/185/4.40 Yes 1/7
