Florida State Recruit Weekend Wrap-up

Several of Florida State's commitments and recruits were again in action over the weekend. In this week's wrap-up NoleDigest recognizes some of the top performers from this weekend's games, like Lonnie Pryor's 365 yard performance in Okeechobee's 43-40 win.




Wrap-up from 10/31-11/1




Lonnie Pryor continues his spectacular play. In Okeechobee's 43-40 overtime win over Martin Co. Pryor was dominating once again. Here is the quote from the Palm Beach Post: The Brahmans (6-2, 3-1 District 13-4A) started the game with a touchdown on the first play of scrimmage on an 80-yard run by Lonnie Pryor. The Florida State signee finished with 365 yards rushing on 25 carries and now has 1,789 yards in eight games.


2010 back Eduardo Clements had what some call his best game of the season in Booker T. Washington's 19-11 district clinching win over Hallandale. Clements had 25 carries for 124 yards and 1 score. Look for something on Clements' recruitment a little later on.


Orson Charles had a great win in Plant's huge win over Tampa-Chamberlain. He had 3 touchdowns, 2 receiving and one on a 7 yard run, in the 27-13 win.


Demote McAllister again had a multi-sack performance in Alonso's 41-21 loss to Jefferson. He had 2 sacks and tackles.


Rodney Smith balled out as he went for 6 catches for 128 yards and 2 scores in Archbishop Carroll's 46-0 shutout win over Dade Christian.


In front of a national television audience Madison and Godby went at it this past Friday. The 13th ranked Cowboys were aided by good performances from Jacobbi McDaniel and Chris Thompson. Here is what the Democrat had to say: Chris Thompson, an FSU commitment who is averaging more than 10 yards per carry this season, ran gingerly because of a sprained ankle sustained two weeks ago but still had 96 yards on 10 carries. And Jaccobi McDaniel had four tackles, a sack and a forced fumble. In a losing effort Willie Downs only had one catch, which went for a score. He also threw a 39 yard touchdown pass and had 4 tackles on defense.


Jawanza Starling showed his all-around potential as he took back 2 punts for scores in Lincoln's 48-0 win over Chiles. Both punt returns came in the second quarter, as one went for 53 yards and the other 77.


JaJuan Harley played a role in Rickards' win over Bay. They didn't' test him much as he only had 3 tackles on defense. He also was the quarterback for his team in goal-line situations.


No stats were available for Brandon Jenkins in Florida High's 42-32 win over Navarre.


2010 athlete Christian Green led his Tampa-Catholic team to a 31-0 win over Lennard. He had 2 TD passes in the game.


Thanks to the Orlando Sentinel for this blurb on Andre Debose in Seminole's 35-14 win over Lake Brantley: Debose, a senior speedster pursued by college recruiters nationwide, again meant almost everything to his team when the 'Noles thirsted for a big play. After Lake Brantley tied the game 7-7, Debose gave the Seminoles a lead it never again relinquished with a scintillating 78-yard kickoff-return touchdown. When Brantley pulled back to within 21-14, Debose again worked his magic. He took a short pass from Armstrong just beyond the line of scrimmage, dodged defenders and ran 60 yards to set up his own short TD keeper.


Super junior Lamarcus Joyner was Mr. Utility in Southwest's 25-23 win over Varela as he played wide out, running back and defensive back.


FSU soft verbal Ed Stinson had 3 tackles in South Dade's shutout loss to Killian.


Henry Orelus helped lead Glades Central to a 58-6 shellacking of Pembroke Pines Charter.
