Expect to see more of Florida State freshman WR Kermit Whitfield.

The Orlando native, who also plays running back and returns kicks, took a toss for a 74-yard touchdown against Syracuse on Saturday, a sign that FSU coach Jimbo Fisher is working on ways to utilize Whitfield’s blazing speed.

“He’s so dynamic with the ball and is really getting a grasp on what we’re doing,” Fisher said. “He’s not a track player, he’s a football player that runs track. That guy plays football. Very strong, very physical, tremendous body control.”

Whitfield (5-7, 178) won high-school state championships in the 100-meter and 200-meter dashes.

The freshman is averaging 31.5 yards per touch this year and has three touchdowns.

“It’s good to see him getting in a rhythm with us and getting in the red zone,” FSU WR Kenny Shaw said.

Fisher said he is creating more specific packages for Whitfield.
