2013 Orange Bowl: Trip to Miami could pay dividends for Florida State recruiting

Bob Donnan-US PRESSWIRE

FSU's bowl trip could help it recruit some of the region's top high school talent.

When the Florida State Seminoles travel to Miami for the 2013 Orange Bowl, it will give the program another chance to showcase itself to the region's top talent. FSU head coach Jimbo Fisher said that area of the state is a priority for his staff on the recruiting trail.

"There are as many great players in South Florida as there are anywhere in the country," Fisher said. "This is a prime-time area. This is a home-base area. It’s a priority for us. We continue to have a lot of strength in this area and we are going to continue to recruit this area."

Florida State's 2013 class already includes two players from Miami -- three-star defensive back Michael Johnson and three-star athlete Jesus Wilson. The class includes 16 players at this point and is considered the 14th-best class in the nation by Rivals; that's the top-ranked class in the Atlantic Coast Conference.
