Florida State won an important in-state recruiting battle on Saturday.
The Seminoles grabbed a commitment from 4-star wide receiver Maurice Goolsby, who announced his decision via Twitter shortly after the Garnet and Gold Spring Game.

“I like how Coach [Willie] Taggart is handling the program and I believe in his plan going forward,” Goolsby told Noles247’s Josh Newburg.
The prospect from Dunnellon (Fla.) High School ranks as the 30th-best wide receiver and 178th overall player in the Class of 2019, according to the 247Sports composite rankings.
Goolsby decommitted from Florida on Nov. 28, 2017, after committing to the Gators in June. He chose Florida State over offers from Miami, Arkansas, Auburn and others.
At 6-foot-5, Goolsby would be the tallest receiver on the Florida State roster. Following Auden Tate’s departure for the 2018 NFL Draft, the Seminoles have a lot of question marks at wide receiver. If those questions go unanswered in 2018, Goolsby could play his way into a sizeable role as a freshman.
