TALLAHASSEE -- Since the start of spring practice, Florida State has lost four receivers — three of them seniors — from what once looked like a unit with considerable depth.
With seniors Jarred Haggins, Willie Haulstead and Greg Dent all likely to miss the season and once-promising newcomer Marvin Bracy gone to run track professionally, the Seminoles will need redshirt junior Christian Green to have a solid year as he works back from injury.
“He had a chance the other day to make some plays, and he made some,” said FSU coach Jimbo Fisher of Green’s performance in the mid-week scrimmage. “I’m very happy for him. He’s a great young man, and he had a good year two years ago, and hopefully he can come back to that same level and I think better.”
Thomas Standing Out
Fisher singled out former Miami Booker T. Washington standout Matthew Thomas as one of the freshman who has stood out so far in camp. Thomas made headlines when he reportedly asked to be released from his letter of intent in June.
