Fresh faces: Florida State
By ESPN.com staff
Here's a look at three players who could make a name for themselves this fall at Florida State:
CB Xavier Rhodes RS-Fr. -- He's 6-foot-1 with a solid frame, outstanding feet and receiver skills. He split time at boundary corner this past spring with starter Ochuko Jenije and is likely to push the veteran for the starting job this summer.
DT Anthony McCloud RS-So. -- The junior college transfer brings size (300 pounds) to a unit in need. He was very productive as a true freshman at Itawamba (Miss.) Community College after starring at Thomasville (Ga.) Thomas County Central. He originally signed with Florida State as a member of the 2008 class and has three years of eligibility remaining.
CB Lamarcus Joyner Fr. -- The USA Today National Defensive Player of the Year is a bigger version of Greg Reid and may contribute as a kickoff returner as well. ESPN Recruiting services ranked him the No. 1 cornerback in his class and the No. 6 prospect overall.
