Jimbo Fisher is calling on Jameis Winston to come in and close out the recruitment of 5-Star WR Malachi Dupre.
The Florida State baseball team took to the field for their first practice of the season on Friday. Heisman Trophy winning quarterback Jameis Winston was back on the diamond today to start his second season with Mike Martin's club and likely his first as the team's closer.
Winston is also being looked at in another "closer" role this weekend. This time Florida State football head coach Jimbo Fisher is bringing Winston in to "close" on five-star wide receiver Malachi Dupre of New Orleans (La.) John Curtis. Winston will be Dupre's personal host this weekend while he's in Tallahassee on his official visit.
Fisher needs some of Winston's magic if FSU hopes to steal Dupre away from LSU on National Signing Day. Most experts consider LSU to be the favorite to land the Pelican State star.
The 247Sports Crystal Ball for Malachi Dupre reflects the experts sentiments. Of the 47 predictions, 98% have Dupre going to LSU.
With Jameis Winston getting prepared for the upcoming baseball season, his first test as a closer will come this weekend.
