Commitment performance watch

10/21/2012

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.

Michael Johnson: In a game where Booker T. Washington dropped 70 points on their opponent, the Tornado starters really didn't have more than a handful of series to play their part. Johnson, though, contributed three tackles and an interception to jumpstart the team to a win. The Tornadoes figure to be a favorite to reach the state championship in December.

Levonte Whitfield: Another week, and another mention for Levonte Whitfield in the performance watch. The speedy athlete hauled in a touchdown reception of over 50 yards, rushed for a touchdown of over 15 yards, and logged over 100 all-purpose yards. He continues to be the focal point of the Jones offensive attack and hasn't really been kept in check yet.

Denzel Ware: Florida State's 2014 defensive end commitment reached the 10-tackle mark for Crestview this week. He also was a force behind the line of scrimmage with three tackles for loss. As a junior, Ware continues to show a good mix of athleticism and technique to beat blockers.

Demarcus Christmas: Just one part of Manatee's dominant defensive line, 2014 defensive tackle Demarcus Christmas recorded four tackles, two of which were behind the line of scrimmage and a sack. On a team with so much talent, big plays are hard to hoard. Instead, the wealth has to be shared.

Adrian Baker - Two-way standout Adrian Baker lived up to the billing this week. On offense, he added 63 yards receiving to the cause. And on the other side, he recorded four tackles and a pass break-up for the Chaminade defense.
