Official Visit: Freshman making an impact
Florida State has the second-ranked recruiting class in the country. If the Seminoles finish the 2014 cycle No. 1, they ought to include that as an accomplishment under Jameis Winston's bio.
That's the benefit of having a quarterback who takes college football by storm the way Winston has this year. Few things raise a program's profile -- on the field and on the recruiting trail -- like a young Heisman-contending quarterback, and the redshirt freshman's spectacular start has his team 5-0 heading into an ACC showdown against Clemson on Saturday night.
Of FSU's 24 pledges, all but one committed to coach Jimbo Fisher before the season. But Winston's mark on recruiting going forward is undeniable. In fact, the team's most recent commit, Ryan Izzo (Sparta, N.J./Pope John XXIII), said Winston's early success had a big impact on his decision.
