BREAKING: Seminoles flip four-star safety from Penn State, hold off Miami
Over the past two years, Florida State has been caught off guard by multiple Early Signing Day surprises.
Possibly, just like their play on the field the Seminoles’ luck at the recruiting trail is shifting in the right direction.
Four-star safety Conrad Hussey, announced on Thursday that he was resigning from Penn State to sign with Florida State. Hussey was favored by the Seminoles over Miami and the Nittany Lions, who hosted him the last weekend before the NCAA Dead Period.
Hussey was only able to visit Florida State once before his decision, but the coaching staff kept in touch with him. The staff’s efforts, including Mike Norvell, head coach, and Marcus Woodson (defensive backs coach), proved fruitful. Hussey is a tremendously talented prospect in a position of need.
It is possible that Jammie Robinson and Akeem dent, both Seminoles’ first safeties, will move on after the season. Robinson has repeatedly stated that he’s played his last game at Doak Campbell Stadium, while Dent is still considering his options. This means that Hussey could be involved in defense early in his career.
The Seminoles were a favorite of the Florida native. He was overwhelmed during his Official Visit in Tallahassee, which is why he chose Florida State.
“FSU was fantastic, I’m not going lie. It has everything I love, and what they have to show me. Hussey stated. “I also appreciate the love they showed me. Everything about FSU was exactly as they had told me before about family and culture, so I really appreciated that.
The St. Thomas Aquinas graduate will enroll at Florida State this summer. MaxPreps reports that he had 29 tackles, 5 pass deflections and 3 interceptions in his senior season.
The defensive back, who is 6′ tall and 190 lbs, is considered the No. 164 overall prospect, and the No. 11 S, and No. According to 247Sports, Florida has 38 recruits in the 2023 class.
