Javonte Seabury of Orlando Timber Creek offered by Florida State during visit

Orlando Sentinel

Orlando Timber Creek slot receiver Javonte Seabury picked up another major offer Wednesday while visiting Florida State.

Seabury, a 5-foot-9, 165-pound senior who is the older brother of running back prospect Jacques Patrick, was swinging through Tallahassee with five other high school prospects on the final leg of a week-long, college-campus tour.

Seabury started off the trip by receiving an offer over the phone from Miami while he was at Auburn on Friday, and FSU joined the mix Wednesday when head coach Jimbo Fisher served up an invite to come play for the ACC school.

"I was in Jimbo's office when he offered," Seabury said, "and he told me he would like me to come to his school and he liked me a lot."

Seabury, the No. 31-ranked player in the Sentinel's 2014 Central Florida Super60, also has one other Football Bowl Subdivision offer from Kent State, which was his first offer. Football Championship Subdivision member Samford has also offered.

Also on the trip with Seabury and Patrick are Orlando Jones DB C.J. Jennings Jr., Palm Bay Bayside LB Greg Miclisse, Merritt Island DB Shaq Jones and Cocoa OL-DL Freddie Booth-Lloyd. The six, who are being chaufferred around by Brevard Elite 7-on-7 coach Josh Bourne, hit several campuses during the past week, including LSU, South Alabama, Tulane, Troy, Samford, Auburn, Georgia, Georgia Tech and others.

Seabury has been impressing coaches all over the southeast with his speed this summer. He was the fastest man of the summer at Miami's Al Golden camps, runnig a 4.38-second 40-yard dash there two weekends ago (July 7).

At LSU camp on Tuesday, Seabury rolled out of the car and without even stretching, popped a 4.40 40 time on the Baton Rouge campus. He vows that with a little more tweaking on his technique he can hit 4.29.

"I can do it ... just like Deion Sanders," he said.

Seabury, who missed half of his junior season with an Achilles injury, had an impressive spring game in a rout of Sebastian River. He caught five passes for 160 yards and three touchdowns. Timber Creek was 10-2 last year, losing in the state quarterfinals to eventual Class 8A champion Apopka.
