Florida State Seminoles: tony stevens

SAN ANTONIO -- Once committed to Florida State, ESPN 300 wide receiver Tony Stevens (Orlando, Fla./Evans) decided to take his talents to the Lone Star State.

Stevens verbally committed to Texas A&M during the U.S. Army All American Bowl. Ranked No. 207 in the ESPN 300, Stevens chose the Aggies over Florida State and Ohio State.

Stevens becomes the 35th commit for the Aggies and the ninth commit to potentially play receiver in 2013. The 6-foot-4, 184-pound athlete is the No. 29 receiver in the nation.

Recruited by Texas A&M receivers coach David Beaty, Stevens decommitted from Florida State in October.
LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- As Tony Stevens (Orlando, Fla./Evans) looks decreasingly likely to sign with Florida State, the Seminoles have begun to make appropriate changes to their plans at wide receiver.

SAN ANTONIO -- Wednesday was a day off for the U.S. Army All-American Bowl teams. Instead of working out and participating in drills, the players took in visits around the city -- including a stop at the Alamodome for photo opportunities and to see their game apparel -- and used the day to recover from two days of practice.

The teams will return to the fields on Thursday in arguably the most important practice of the week. Here are five things to keep an eye on for Thursday’s practice:

Several FSU commits, targets in ESPN 300

At first glance, this year's Florida State recruiting class lacks the star power of the two before it. That isn't to say it is void of quality, though. But Seminoles do have some offensive firepower on the list, notably four-star prospects Ryan Green, Isaiah Jones, and Levonte Whitfield. In the trenches, which has been an area of focus for the Seminoles coaching state in recent cycles, offensive linemen Austin Golson and Ira Denson and defensive end Davin Bellamy have them off to a good start.

In a trend that is running opposite of Florida State's results on the gridiron, the Seminoles have lost two commitments -- wide receiver Tony Stevens (Orlando, Fla./Evans) and tight end Christian Morgan (Plano, Texas/Prestonwood Christian) -- in the last 24 hours.

Both cases, however, appear isolated and not because of some failure related to the coaching staff.

NoleNation takes a quick look at each case:

WR Stevens no longer committed to FSU

Corey Long/ESPN.comESPN 300 WR Tony Stevens announced Wednesday that he was no longer a Seminole.
ESPN 300 wide receiver commitment Tony Stevens (Orlando, Fla./Evans) said he has decommitted from Florida State late Wednesday night.

The 6-foot-4, 184-pound prospect had been committed to the Seminoles since February 25 before making an announcement on his personal Twitter account.

"I'm decommitting from Florida State," he said.

The Seminoles, it seems, aren't even in his top five any longer.

Stevens later said that Ohio State, Georgia, Louisville, USF and USC are his top schools. He did indicate in August that he was likely going to take other official visits.

"I'm going to take all of my visits because it's my senior year," Stevens said earlier. "I know I'm going to visit Ohio State, FSU, Louisville, South Carolina and USF ... but I'm still solid to Florida State."

That's obviously not the case now.

ESPN ranks Stevens as the No. 22 receiver in the class of 2013 and is the No. 35 player in Florida.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Four-star Florida State wide receiver commit Tony Stevens and his Orlando Evans teammates lost a disappointing preseason game to Jacksonville Sandalwood 29-27 on Friday night, but the talented 6-foot-4, 184-pound receiver accounted for three receptions for 49 yards and two touchdowns in only one half of action.

Stevens, whose two touchdowns went for 30 and 13 yards, said after the game that he is planning to take all five of his official visits in the fall.

"I'm going to take all of my visits because it's my senior year," Stevens said. "I know I'm going to visit Ohio State, FSU, Louisville, South Carolina and USF ... but I'm still solid to Florida State."

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- Florida State is quietly putting together one of the more impressive recruiting classes for 2013, including commitments from three very talented wide receivers.

ESPN's revised recruiting rankings were released Thursday, and there aren't many changes among the 17 players already committed to Florida State for 2013.

Ten of FSU's commitments remain in the ESPN 300, though wide receiver Tony Stevens (Orlando, Fla./Evans) dropped out of the ESPN 150.

Overall, Florida State ranks fifth nationally for the work coach Jimbo Fisher and his staff have already done on the recruiting trail, and a few big fish remain in the pond.
