Four-star RB Aeris Williams makes the call

August, 1, 2013
Mississippi State, which currently holds the nation's 34th ranked recruiting class, secured a big piece on Wednesday with the addition of running back Aeris Williams (West Point, Miss./West Point), the Clarion Ledger reports.

"I talked to my mom and she loved it. I had to talk to my friends and stuff," he said. "I felt at home anyway. It just felt like the right choice."

Florida State, Ole Miss and Wisconsin also extended scholarship offers to the 6-foot, 210-pound four-star prospect.

Williams rushed for 1,519 yards and 25 touchdowns during his junior campaign.

The Bulldogs have 14 pledges.

FSU recruiting: Positions of need 

July, 2, 2013
NoleNation takes a quick look at five positions of need in this 2014 recruiting class.

Offensive tackle

Florida State enters this 2013 with only one certain starter at offensive tackle. Cam Erving, the starting left tackle, is a redshirt junior and could very well jump to the NFL draft after this season, given his high projections. Bobby Hart has played a lot in his first two seasons and could end up being the right tackle. From the Class of 2013, just Wilson Bell is capable of playing tackle, but could just as well end up on the interior depending on how things shake out.

Commitments: Ethan Frith (Summit, Miss./North Pike)

Top targets: Damian Prince (Forestville, Md./Bishop McNamara), Roderick Johnson (Florissant, Mo./Hazelwood Central)
