Florida State Football: Depth at WR May Take Another Hit
The Florida State Seminoles may be taking another hit at wide receiver. As if losing Kelvin Benjamin and Kenny Shaw to the NFL wasn’t enough, head coach Jimbo Fisher had to deal with sophomore Jesus Wilson stealing a moped. Though he is currently practicing with the team, Wilson is indefinitely suspended from playing until further notice.
Now to make matters worse, sophomore receiver Isaiah Jones may be declared academically ineligible for the 2014 season. There is no telling if it will happen as of yet, but the word circling Tallahassee, Fla. is that he will not be playing for the Noles this season.
Jones was expected to be somewhat of a Benjamin type receiver because of his 6-foot-4 frame. Unfortunately, the coaching staff will have to start looking elsewhere for that type of player. They will be relying heavily on seniors Rashad Greene (mr. consistent), Christian Green and Scooter Haggins to lead the way. Following in their footsteps will be newcomers Travis Rudolph, Ermon Lane, Ja’Vonn Harrison and sophomore Kermit Whitfield. All are battling for playing time and that No. 2 receiving spot.
Odds are all will see some significant playing time this year with the depth being so thin. Also, things could get worse if any serious injuries were to occur.
Someone if not everyone left on the depth chart will need to step up their game big time. They may have reigning Heisman trophy winner Jameis Winston, but he can only do so much. It should be interesting to see how the offense looks come Aug. 30 against Oklahoma State in Dallas, Texas.
