2023 College Recruiting - 2 Commits

Last Player Grade Published on April 7, 2022

There are two things I would like to see Florida State do more of under Mike Norvell. Recruit better in Florida, and recruit some tougher receivers on the outside. Lawrence (6-2, 192) might end up helping in both areas. He can stretch the field - another issue the Seminoles have struggled with - and he'll adjust make a play on the football. I think he can blow the top off a defense if the quarterback can get him the football. Lawrence comes from a good high school program that produces tough, physical kids.

Darren Lawrence's Player Grade: B

Florida State's line coach Odell Haggins is just one of those guys you trust when it comes to evaluating the position. Sampson (6-3, 280) is a thick-bodied prospect who should project nicely as a three-technique. He has the quickness off the snap and the short burst to rush the pass from the inside, but Sampson is also tough enough to take on the double teams and fight through bodies to get to the football. He plays a little high right now, but those are things he can improve on with consistent coaching.

Keith Sampson's Player Grade: B
