Fla. St loads up with top defensive line prospects

BRENT KALLESTAD Associated Press Published:

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Florida State literally went heavy on defense in another highly ranked recruiting class pulled in by coach Jimbo Fisher and his staff.

The Seminoles landed two of the nation's top-ranked defensive linemen Wednesday in 290-pound defensive end Mario Edwards, Jr., and 310-pound defensive tackle Eddie Goldman. They also picked up the country's fastest prep player in receiver Marvin Bracy, who recorded the fastest 55 meters time in the world last month when he was clocked at 6.08 seconds. The Orlando two-sport star would miss the beginning of Florida State's fall practice if he qualifies for the U.S. Olympic team this summer.

Other Seminole signees include quarterback Sean McGuire from Seton Hall Prep in West Orange, New Jersey and tight end Christo Kourtzidis from Lutheran High School in Orange, Calif.
