Notes from Florida State’s Jimbo Fisher Football Camp

Justin Fields

Florida State’s June Jimbo Fisher Football camp concluded on Friday after three days of work. The camp was one full of prospects that included some current commitments, as well as future hopefuls.

Among Florida State’s commitments at the camp were four-star running back James Cook, three-star running back Charles Strong, four-star defensive tackle Robert Cooper, three-star weak-side defensive end Patrick Joyner, four-star outside linebacker Amari Gainer, four-star cornerback Asante Samuel Jr., four-star offensive tackle Wanya Morris and three-star defensive tackle Tru Thompson.

Five-star quarterback Justin Fields, who recently decommitted from Penn State, was the biggest non-committed player at the camp. He spent the latter part of the week in Tallahassee and impressed in Fisher’s presence. Other quarterbacks in attendance included three-star Jace Ruder and 2021 prospect Aaron McLaughlin and 2020 prospect Max Johnson, who is the son of former Florida State great Brad Johnson.

Ruder, who is the No. 17 dual-threat quarterback in the 2018 class according to 247Sports, was notable during his workout in Tallahassee. While he already has an offer from Seminoles, the Florida State staff may possibly be waiting on Fields’ choice before pulling hard for a commitment from Ruder.

Four-star Isaiah Bolden, a former Florida State commit who flipped to Oregon in April, was also in attendance. Bolden, the No. 21 cornerback in the country according to 247Sports, appeared to be at ease on the Florida State campus.

Another defensive back target, four-star Nadab Joseph, also showed up to the camp despite not practicing due to a minor hip injury. Joseph, who is the No. 20 safety in the country according to 247Sports, is currently an LSU commit.

Although Bolden and Joseph’s futures are still up in the air, there were a few players who did commit soon after the conclusion of the camp. A pair of three-star prospects, wide receiver D’Marcus Adams and defensive back Johnathan Huggins, pledged to the Seminoles this week.

There were also plenty of future prospects in attendance, as well. Some notable names include 2019 five-star defensive tackle Ishmael Sopsher, 2018 four-star tight end George Takacs, 2018 three-star wide receiver Dominick Watt and 2018 three-star defensive tackle Dennis Briggs.
