Markell Pack, a 4-star wide receiver, is a speedy wideout with great potential, and he's the latest recruit to commit to Florida State.
Pack is ranked as the No. 4 player from the state of Mississippi, and he's the No. 25 wideout in the 2014 class, according to the 247Sports Composite. He's commitment No. 10 for Florida State and the Seminoles' third wide receiver commitment.
Corey Dowlar of ESPN.com reported on the commitment:
Markell Pack (Purvis, Miss./Purvis) has been high on the Seminoles board for quite a while. So when he committed to Florida State late Saturday night, it was not a surprise that the Florida State coaches were a happy group.
New assistant coach Tim Brewster was the first to get the news Sunday morning.
"I decided to do it last night and when we talked this morning, they were pretty fired up," Pack said.
Pack is 6'2'', 180 pounds, so he has ideal height, but he also runs a 4.43 40, according to 247Sports. With his combination of size and speed, he projects to be a pure deep threat who can stretch the zone with his speed and go up and get the ball because of his height.
With that said, Pack will be comfortable all over the field.
He's adept at taking short routes and making something happen after the catch. He has quick feet, great vision, a good cut move and he's a strong runner. He can be physical because of his size, and he's also elusive.
Pack can also run a deep route though and beat a defender vertically, and he displays good vision when the ball is in the air and instincts to adjust to the throw and make a play on it—even in a crowd. He has good hands and displays good concentration, so he'll be a reliable receiver.
For Florida State, he's a big out-of-state commitment who also projects to be extremely talented. In fact, Pack could end up being a star wide receiver for the Seminoles, in time.
