Flying Under the Radar.


FSU’s 2018 class is full of intriguing prospects from under the radar players like D’marcus Adams to well-known prospects like Anthony Lytton. In this article, I will cover some of my favorite “under the radar” guys that are committed to the Seminoles.

D’Marcus Adams: Continuing it’s pipeline with Mainland FSU lands 6’0 175LBs, 3 Star wideout D’Marcus Adams. Adams is a football player with track speed. I believe he is the most underrated prospect of Tribe ’18. He has the speed to get separation on virtually anybody, running a 4.37 over the summer at FSU’s camp. In his film he proves that he is not just a “speed guy”, doing a real good job at locating the ball in the air while making great adjustments time and time again, perhaps his most underrated feature is his blocking. Adams does a good job of taking cornerbacks out of running plays for his running back. He could provide quality returns along side DJ Matthews for his freshman year.

Stacy Kirby: Racking up offers from top-notch programs including Florida, Auburn, Ohio State, LSU, and Miami. It’s tough to call him an “under the radar” prospect, but Kirby hasn’t really been talked about much since he committed to the Noles back in February. At 6’3 250LBs, he has ideal size for the defensive end position. One thing that really stands out on film when watching him is his knack for the football. He always seems to be around the ball forcing and recovering fumbles and making tackles in the backfield. Kirby’s motor is what could make him great at the next level. He never gives up on plays, making a lot of effort sacks or forcing opposing quarterbacks to scramble to the other side of the field, giving his teammates several opportunities to make plays.

Charles Strong: After the trio of running backs FSU hauled in last year’s class, you can see why a 3 star running back could be over looked, but Charles Strong is not one to ignore. At 6’1 230LBs, Strong is a bruiser that has enough speed to break loose. He is a tough in between the tackles runner, perfect for short yardage situations. I believe he will take the situational running back role that backs like James Wilder, Karlos Williams, and now Jacques Patrick have flourished in.

John Huggins: Another product out of Mainland Huggins is a 6’2 200LB safety with a nose for the football. The first thing you can see on film is his ball skills, registering picks in his first three clips. All three picks were impressive, two where he high pointed the ball and jumping a route, and answering a house call in the other.  One thing that does not go unnoticed is Huggins’s tenacity. He is a very physical player, taking out lead blocks and making open field tackles. He does his part to help the defense out in anyway he can. Huggins is an interesting prospect and I’m very excited to see how he will translate at the next level.
