After watching Florida State practice for about two hours on Thursday afternoon, four-star wide receiver Lawayne McCoy gave the Seminoles’ coaching staff some great news.

The Miami Central playmaker committed to the Seminoles and becomes the third WR commit in Florida State’s 2024 class.

“I just feel like this is the perfect fit for me,” McCoy said, adding that he has been to Florida State several times and loves everything about the Seminoles’ program.

McCoy said he didn’t decide to commit until he was on campus this afternoon, and he said he surprised head coach Mike Norvell and the FSU staff with the news.

“He was fired up. Mike Norvell was fired up,” McCoy said. “He yelled in the room. He had me fired up too.”

McCoy, who is listed at 6 feet tall and 170 pounds, is rated as one of the top 50 players in the state of Florida and one of the top 50 receivers in the nation by the On3 Industry Ranking.

He joins four-star Tawaski Abrams and three-star Camdon Frier as receivers in the Seminoles’ 2024 class.

When asked what has him so convinced that Florida State is the school for him, McCoy started out with Norvell and his no-nonsense approach.

“My relationship with him and the receivers coach, Coach Dugans,” he said. “We’ve been building a relationship over the past years.”

McCoy said the Florida State coaches said they plan to use him as a slot and outside receiver.

“That’s what I do — I make plays,” he said. “They’re gonna use me in the offense to make plays.”

The four-star wideout doesn’t have plans to visit any other schools but said there’s a chance he could take official visits.

Saying that he loves the play of FSU receivers Johnny Wilson and Hykeem Williams, McCoy believes big things are coming for the Seminoles’ program.

“This team’s gonna be very good,” McCoy said. “When I come here, we’re gonna win a national championship.”
