Chad Mavety, OT, Garden City (N.Y.) Nassau C.C.

Recruiting Buzz: The Seminoles clearly needed to bolster their OL depth. FSU’s first-team OL was one of the best units in the country, but second string was shaky at best, making Juco prospects like Mavety and Kareem Are an important part of this class.
Mavety’s size and strength makes him a candidate to at least earn a position as a primary backup this season. He exhibits surprising mobility for a man of his stature, displaying the ability to naturally pull and climb to the second level to block LBs.
Mavety picked FSU over Ohio State, Alabama, Texas A&M and Wisconsin. The Buckeyes were considered serious contenders to land Mavety and hosted him on an official visit in November, but Mavety picked FSU because he felt he could contribute immediately to a team in need of adding more bodies along its offensive front.
