Williams likes what he hears from the Seminoles
Ricardo Williams is one of South Florida's most talented defensive ends for the 2011 class. The 6'5" 210 pound athlete is still growing into his frame. He has the capability to be an outside linebacker in college, but most see his future as a defensive end in college. Speed and explosiveness is what makes Ricardo a hot commodity, and his capability as a pass rusher is what has FSU interested in him.
"Coach Coley came by the school today," explained Williams. "He told my coaches they want me badly. I've been talking with FSU for a while now. They want me to come up to their camp in June. Coach Coley told my coach that he'll be coming back with another coach next week some time to watch practice."
"FSU needs a pass rusher and they need a guy like me," continued Williams. "I like what they have been telling me about the program."
Williams is taking the process in stride and says that he doesn't have a list of top schools right now.
"I'll check out FSU," Williams said, "and I am also looking at Texas Tech, Florida and USC."
Baxter on FSU's radar
Keith Baxter is a recruit that will more than likely see interest pick up in him over the evaluation period. While he isn't known on the recruiting sites yet Baxter has a nice blend of aggressiveness and great speed for a defensive back. Some feel he can play corner on the next level while others feel he is a safety, which is what he plays for Homestead.
Keith is one of the several defensive backs the coaches from FSU are evaluating this spring. Like Williams, Baxter got an invite to summer camp.
"Coach Coley told my coaches they want me to come up to camp in June," said Baxter. He also said another coach will be coming with him next week to check me out. I've never heard anything from FSU until today. They are looking at me as a corner right now. I don't about safety."
Keith told NoleDigest that he has interest in FSU along with a group of others.
"Yeah, I'm interested in FSU," said Baxter. "They like me because of my size and my ability to play defensive back. The other schools right now I like are Tennessee, Miami, Georgia Tech, Pittsburgh and Marshall."
At this time Marshall, Syracuse and Western Kentucky have offered Baxter.
Stay tuned to NoleDigest for more with this duo after the coaches from FSU make another visit next week.
