Florida State hosts group of Texas talent

The state of Texas provided a recruiting presence in Tallahassee.

On hand at Florida State over the weekend were four of the “lone star state’s” most highly regarded prospects from the class of 2017.

This group included Kennedale linebacker  Baron Browning (Kennedale),  South Grand Prairie wide receiver/cornerback Jeffrey Okudah (Grand Prairie), Episcopal offensive tackle Walker Little (Bellaire) and Episcopal defensive tackle Marvin Wilson (Houston).

“The game atmosphere was really great,” said Little of Florida State’s 37-34 ACC loss to Clemson on Saturday. “Maybe the best atmosphere I have seen. Meeting with all of the coaches was great too.”

He still plans to make official visits to Ole miss, Stanford, Texas and Georgia and took unofficial trips to Texas A&M (Oct. 8), Stanford (Sept. 17 and May 14) and Texas (Sept. 4 and April 16).

Prior to officially visiting the Seminoles, Browning had made official trips to Alabama (Oct. 21) and Michigan (Oct. 1) with scheduled visits to UCLA (Nov. 18) and Ohio State (Nov. 26).

Okudah took official trips to Oklahoma (Sept. 17) and Georgia (Sept. 24)  while Wilson made an official visit to Oklahoma (Sept 17), with another planned on Nov. 26 when Ohio State hosts Michigan.

All four seniors hold scholarship offers from Florida State with Browning having a total of 40, Okudah at 34, Little with 33 and Williams at 26.
