Stacy Coley Likely to Pick Florida State on National Signing Day

Melina Vastola-USA TODAY Sports

Florida State is in the mood for some good news on the recruiting path after receiving news of two decommitments from offensive lineman Austin Golson, defensive end Davin Bellamy and running back Alex Collins in the past few days, and it may come in the form of a commitment from four-star wide receiver Stacy Coley (Oakland Park, Fl., Northeast).

The 6-1, 173-pound receiver is one of the top undeclared left players in the country, and Coley looks like he’ll be in the Sunshine State for the next four years after visits with the Seminoles and Miami along with an upcoming visit to South Florida.

One of the more versatile players in the state of Florida, Coley did it all in high school having played defensive back, ran kicks back, and even played a little on special teams units; but in college, he will be an electric wide receiver because of his playmaking ability.

When you watch Coley play, the one thing that scouts rave about is his fluidity running routes and his ability to make things look relatively easy. He can be a deep threat and take the top off the defense with his speed and catch the underneath routes and make you miss with his combination of agility and acceleration. With maturity and physical development, Coley can add weight to his frame and play in the 195-pound range and improve his ability to block and break tackles.

Expect the Seminoles to secure the top receiver in Florida, and for Coley to put on the Florida State baseball cap during National Signing Day Feb. 6 and give Jimbo Fisher a nice building block to his class that could finish in the top-10 recruiting classes.
