Playmaker Stacy Coley headed to Miami
By Jared Shanker
Stacy Coley (Oakland Park, Fla./Northeast) was the latest college recruit to come down to Florida State and Miami (Fla.). This round goes to the Hurricanes.
The 6-foot-1 Under Armour All-American, No. 47 in the ESPN 150 and fourth-ranked receiver nationally, visited both rivals then made the announcement Wednesday morning on ESPNU.
What is the impact of Coley’s decision?
What it means for Miami: It means another talented young receiver to go along with Phillip Dorsett and Malcolm Lewis. The Hurricanes have one of the more explosive receiving corps in the ACC.
What it means for Florida State: It means Florida State will have to plan ways to stop Coley instead of drawing up plays for him.
Turning Point: Miami reached out to Coley later in the process once his grades improved. That sealed the deal as Coley wanted to stay close to home.
Surprise (scale of 1 to 5): 3, the general feeling was that FSU had a slight edge.
Immediate impact (scale of 1 to 5): 4, Coley is a competitor and will battle for a spot in the two deep.
