2024 commit Kam Davis takes in FSU spring game

Both of Florida State’s verbal commitments in the 2024 class were in Tallahassee over the weekend to attend the annual spring game. Running back Kam Davis caught up with NoleGameday to speak about the experience and give his thoughts on the Seminoles. From the moment he stepped on campus, Davis found himself getting a ton of love from the fanbase.

“It was some amazing energy out there,” Davis said. “I love a college with a lot of energy and a great fanbase. As soon as I stepped on campus the other day, a police offer stopped me, he was like, ‘I heard you committed, I really want you down here at Florida State, don’t plan on decommitting.’ I would never plan on decommitting because I love the way that the fanbase is. Florida State shows a lot of love to me, that’s why they are a top school and why they’ll forever be a top school for me.”

“A lot of people stopped me, congratulating me, thanking me for my commitment,” Davis continued. “The fans, they were really loud and into the game. I really love the fanbase down there at Florida State and in Tallahassee.”

Davis met up with the most recent member of his class, tight end Landen Thomas, who committed to FSU last week.

“He’s a great addition,” Davis said. “He’s got good athleticism and size. Florida State uses their tight ends a lot and he’s a great tight end/wide receiver. I feel like he’s a great addition to #Tribe24 and I plan on being there with him at Florida State.”

Outside of Thomas, Davis also got a chance to speak with #Tribe22 bell cow Travis Hunter, who gave him some tips on recruiting prospects to the Seminoles.

“Me and Landen [Thomas],” Davis said. “We planned on getting a lot more 2024’s committed, that have offers. I also talked to Travis Hunter a little bit, knowing that he’s a great recruiter to be around and obviously, being a Florida State commit.”

The Georgia native had his eyes on the offense on Saturday. He was impressed by Jashaun Corbin and shared some thoughts on the quarterback battle.

“There are some great running backs out there,” Davis said. “Corbin, he’s one of my favorites, just his size up close, he’s a pretty big guy. I feel like Florida State will have a great rushing season this year coming off of Cam Akers’ loss. There are some running backs out there that can live up to the potential that Dalvin Cook and Cam left.”

“I love the offense,” Davis continued. “The quarterbacks, I like the way they’re competing for the spot. Travis from Louisville, he’s a great quarterback, I really like the way he runs the ball, reading the defense. I feel like it will be a great season for the quarterback that ends up as the starter this year.”

Head coach Mike Norvell showed off his energetic personality on Saturday as we saw him getting after guys and keeping them focused. Davis likes how he holds everyone accountable and he’s built a deep connection with the coaching staff.

“Coach Norvell, he’s a great guy,” Davis said. “I really love the way that he talks and participates with the team out there. I saw a couple times where he got on to a guy when they did the wrong thing or didn’t make the right read. I really love how he makes the players live up to their potential and how great they are. I feel like that’ll get them a long way because he’s a coach that not even looks at what they can do but also what they do wrong on and off the field. I love talking to him on the phone and our relationship is real tight.

“Coach Woodson, I saw him out there on the field,” Davis continued. “We had a couple jokes because I thought he was bigger than what he was but we have a great connection too. My connection with the coaches is just amazing.”

The Dougherty High School product is planning to be a dual-sport athlete in college, playing both football and baseball. He got an opportunity to check out Dick Howser Stadium while he was in town and also watched a softball game.

“We went and looked at the stadium,” Davis said. “We watched a little bit of the softball game too. I watched the Wake Forest and Louisville game this weekend. The baseball team is a great team, they have a lot of fun. I follow all the baseball pages, they have fun in the dugout and game but at the same they get their business done.”

Following the recruitment momentum that was established over the weekend, Davis is expecting more guys to hop on board soon. A couple of recruits have reached out to him since Saturday.

“For my class, I see a lot more commitments,” Davis said. “Just after the spring game, a couple 2024’s hit me up and told me they really loved the campus and see why I committed just based off of the spring game and how well it was organized. I see my class as being a great class for Florida State. Just the recruiting base for FSU itself, it’s great to have a lot of big targets. I also talked to 2022 Qae’Shon Sapp, we have a good connection because we’re right here with each other. We chopped it up and talked about Florida State and we really loved what we saw.”

Davis is planning to return to Florida State in June once the dead period is officially lifted up to meet with the staff on campus. He’s currently unranked in the 2024 class according to 247Sports.
