FSU commitment performance watch

10/14/2012

Florida State's commitments are having big campaigns as the high school season is nearly halfway complete. Here are some prospects who had exceptional weekends.

Tyrell Lyons (Jacksonville, Fla./First Coast): The four-star outside linebacker commitment racked up seven tackles in his game this week against Yulee and future Alabama RB commit Derrick Henry, showing a willingness to get to the ball and make a play. First Coast's defense has some playmakers on it, so tackles, by default, are not easy to come by. Both Daniel McMillian and Sherrod Pittman, other starting linebackers, get their fair share as well.

E.J. Levenberry (Woodbridge, Va/Hylton): The nation's No. 12 inside linebacker prospect turned in another solid performance on Friday. Levenberry racked up nine tackles, showing his toughness against the run and also recorded an interception. The 6-foot-3, 230-pound linebacker is an ESPN 300 prospect.

Ro'Derrick Hoskins (Orlando, Fla./Evans): Hoskins continues to be a mainstay on the Evans defense this season with his eight-tackle performance on Friday. He also showed the ability to rush the passer, getting a sack and a tackle for loss. The four-star ESPN 300 member committed to Florida State back on Feb. 25 during Junior Day.

DeAndre Johnson (Jacksonville, Fla./First Coast): Though just a sophomore, this 2015 commitment continues to shine for First Coast. Johnson threw for more than 230 yards and three touchdowns on Friday. But he also showed off his athletic ability by running for a score, too. Johnson chose FSU over Clemson and Florida in July.

Adrian Baker (Hollywood, Fla./Chaminade-Madonna): Baker has shown he's adept at creating turnovers. That trend continued Friday as he picked off two errant passes and made four tackles.
