Each week, Tales From The Road will provide news updates about where FSU coaches are visiting and what prospects are standing out.
This week's targets: Wide receivers coach Lawrence Dawsey is expected to make an extended stop in the Tampa area this week. Prospects like Artavis Scott (Tarpon Springs, Fla./East Lake), Ryan Davis (St. Petersburg, Fla./Northeast) and George Campbell (Tarpon Springs, Fla./East Lake) will likely get visits. Running back Jacques Patrick, a 2015 target, said Florida State has visited already.
Area of interest: The state of Florida. With spring games coming up, and the evaluation period hitting the home stretch, Florida State will try to make as much noise as possible in its home state. The Noles will see a bunch of prospects in person and continue to debate whether to offer a prospect or not. The stakes, of course, are higher in the home state because teams won't offer unless they mean it.
Prospect performance: No events scheduled.
Word on the street: Q: Any new offers out locally? A: Yes. Running back Johnathan Vickers (Tallahassee, Fla./North Florida Christian) was offered early Tuesday morning by the Seminoles. He's a four-star prospect according to ESPN, and being from Tallahassee, that gives Florida State a good shot.
What to watch: Linebacker Jacob Pugh (Tallahassee, Fla./Godby) and safety Trey Marshall (Lake City, Fla./Columbia) are two guys that Florida State could get commitments from seemingly at any moment. They aren’t necessarily expected to happen in the next week or so, but they could and it wouldn't be a surprise.
