Seminoles Pick Up Sleeper WR Commitment

He may not be one of the big names in this year's crop of prep wide receivers but Florida State coaches are high enough on sleeper prospect Cameron Wade of Cairo, Ga to offer him a scholarship. And it turns out Wade is high on FSU too, as he gave his verbal commitment to the Garnet and Gold Tuesday.

Tuesday the Florida State football team picked up its third commitment for the 2007 class as little-known wide receiver prospect Cameron Wade accepted a scholarship offer.

And while the 6-foot-6 and 190-pound receiver from nearby Cairo, Ga. may be an unfamiliar name to Seminole fans, FSU coaches have known his name for sometime.

"When I came down here I was hoping for an offer and I was glad to get it," Wade told "I had met with Coach (Jody) Allen awhile back. This is my dream school."

Wade, who has been attending the Bobby Bowden football camp this week and performing well, posted over 25 catches for over 300 yards and two scores as a junior last year. He boasted offers from such schools as Kentucky, Louisville, Mississippi State, Duke and South Carolina.

"I have always wanted to come to Florida State," said Wade, who ran a self-reported 4.55 forty-yard dash. " I can't wait to tell my dad about it."
