Florida State landed a commitment from Class of 2014 wide receiver Markell Pack on Sunday morning, giving future Seminole offenses a dynamic weapon.
The 6-2, 180-pounder from Purvis High School (Purvis, MS), who chose the 'Noles over offers from programs such as Georgia, LSU, Ole Miss and Clemson, is a versatile receiver because he can fill in out wide or in the slot.
Pack, who caught 44 passes for 770 yards and seven touchdowns and also ran the ball 54 times for 444 yards and five more scores as a junior, could end up being the most productive receiver that head coach Jimbo Fisher has been able to bring into Tallahassee because of his route-running, athleticism, and ability to break tackles and rack up yards after the catch.
The relationship that Pack forged with current 'Noles tight ends coach/recruiting coordinator Tim Brewster when the former Minnesota head coach was briefly at Mississippi State is considered to have played a huge role in the Mississippi native choosing to attend FSU.
In its 2014 class, FSU has commitments from receivers Pack and Florida natives J.C. Jackson, JoJo Robinson and C.J. Worton. Pack, who is a consensus four-star prospect, is the tenth commitment for the Seminoles in the 2014 haul.
The Seminoles will lose receivers Kenny Shaw, Greg Dent and Scooter Haggins after this season, so reloading has been a priority.
