Dustin Hopkins - USA Today All- American
Dustin Hopkins worked out hard early in the week and strained his groin in the process. He is still prepared to kick in the Under Armour All-American Game this Sunday. Dustin stated "I have really enjoyed the opportunity to meet the top High School players this week and look forward to competing against many of them while playing at Florida State. The talent level on these teams is incredible. I've been working on Dyron Dye with Jacobbi, Demonte, and Chris - he would be a great asset to our football team.
Dustin is looking forward to being a part of Florida State - "I Am A Seminole To The Bone."
Chris Thompson - One of the best players in the country.
Chris Thompson has two sprained ankles however fully intends on contributing to the win for the Black Team at the Under Armour All-America Football Game. Several time Chris did not have a running lane and would slide down the line find a hole and burst through it. Chris is very evasive and has the ability to find the seam and accelerate through for positive yardage.
When speaking to Chris about his recruiting experience he explained " overall the recruiting process was pretty fun however a problem during the season since it is a distraction and takes away from his ability to fully focus on the task at hand. With coaches calling all the time it definitely interferes from the concentration required to be at your best during the football season. For these reasons I committed early to Florida State. I am a Seminole."
Chris also added that " this is a great opportunity to meet all the best players in the country and get to know and bond with my future teammates at Florida State. I look forward to our recruiting class making a difference and play an important role in getting Florida State back on top.
Chris is a very polite charismatic young man with a great personality and will represent Florida State well.
