Marvin Bracy has signed his Letter of Intent to play for Florida State University. He chose Florida State over the University of Florida, University of Georgia, and Notre Dame University. The star wide receiver out of Boone High School in Orlando, Florida has been committed since July. He runs a 4.39 40-yard dash.
Although, Marvin will mostly need some time to learn the wide receiver position, he should compete for playing time returning kicks early.

Florida State's elite track and field program factored into Bracy's decision. The Under Armor All-American football player is also an All-American track and field athlete. Now that the recruiting process is over for Marvin, his focus will turn to trying to qualify for the Olympics. Bracy has been timed at 10.02 in a wind-aided 100-meter dash last year. Most recently, Marvin ran the fastest time in the nation among anyone in the 55-meter race at the Jimmy Carnes indoor track and field meet held at the Stephen C. O'Connell Center in Gainesville, FL, with a time of 6.08 seconds. How fast is he, exactly? I'll let you judge for yourself:

He's that fast. Bracy has said he would like to break the 6 second mark this year. Judging by this video, he definitely has a chance.
