While Florida State is trying to reel in a top-five recruiting class for 2017, that doesn’t mean it can’t keep an eye on some guys in 2018. That includes massive 6’3″, 350-pound defensive tackle Robert Cooper. Right now, he’s a hard Florida State commit and the Seminoles would love to have him considering he would put a lot of pros to shame when it comes to the most basic NFL Combine measurement of the bench press.
In the most recent combine, only six players that would be in the NFL later that year benched 225 more than 31 times and the highest total was 34. Cooper has been committed to FSU since last summer and is rated as the No. 8 defensive tackle in the class by 247Sports as well as the No. 10 recruit in the state of Georgia.
The 247 crystal ball gives FSU a 40 percent chance of landing him in 2018 with South Carolina getting the same chance and Georgia getting a 20 percent chance.
