TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- Earlier this week, we took a preseason look at the Florida State quarterback race. But, maybe just as important, are the targets who'll be receiving throws from the signal callers.
Two receivers are already household names. Senior Nyquan Murray and Crawfordville native and junior Keith Gavin combined for close to 1,000 receiving yards a season ago.
The stats don't tell the full story on Gavin, who wasn't on the receiving end of a touchdown last year, but don't expect as big and as physical a threat Gavin is to go scoreless again.
Noonie will look to do what he did best last year and continue to stretch the field, and improve upon his six catches that were over 30 yards lsat season.
But, who are some of the young guys in the pipe that'll be threats behind the established duo?
Redshirt freshman Tamorrion Terry sat last season out, but led the spring game in receiving with 129 yards and a touchdown.
The 6'4" Georgia native can join Noonie in spreading the field, and just might have the best hands on the Seminoles.
Sophomore D.J. Matthews is another name hoping to breakout in 2018. Seeing time mostly on special teams, Matthews hopes his spring game production will replicate in the regular season, as he finished with 105 yards back in April.
The scouting report on Matthews reads how shifty he is and how dangerous in space he can be.
Freshman Adarius Dent and redshirt freshman Ontaria Wilson will also be names to watch in the Seminoles' receiving corps, as FSU looks for it's next breakout star, especially in a post-Auden Tate world.
