FSU camp: Top offensive performers

Recruiting wrap: There are a lot of schools contending for Williams' commitment. Florida State, Ohio State, LSU, Michigan, Alabama and Auburn are just a few.
Performance: It was a pretty talented group of offensive lineman on Thursday and, of the uncommitted players, Williams got the most attention from the Florida State coaches. He's added a lot of weight and it has helped him stand up to bull rushes better. Williams' dominant first punch was on full display and some defensive ends found out the hard way.
Richard Merritt
Washington (D.C.) Archbishop Carroll
Recruiting wrap: Merrit hopes to take an official visit to Florida State this year. He is also hoping to take visits to Alabama, UCLA and some other West Coast schools.
Performance: Merritt had a very up-and-down day, struggling through some of the drills but dominating during the one-on-one session. He has some bad weight on him and he needs to get better shape but his patience from the guard position and first punch prevented the defensive linemen from getting past him. The Florida State coaches are working with him to help him stay balanced and not guess as much.
Josh Ball
Fredericksburg (Va.) Stafford Senior
Recruiting wrap: Ball is committed to Florida State.
Performance: Ball was the only Florida State commit to work out on the offensive line and he did very well during one-on-ones. None of the defensive linemen were able to beat him inside or get him off balance with the bull rush. Ball has gotten better at staying low and getting his hands into the chest of the defensive linemen. There were only one or two reps where the defensive end was able to beat him off the edge.
Lorenzo Lingard (2018)
Orange City (Fla.) University High School
Recruiting wrap: Lingard has Florida State and Georgia at the top of his list.
Performance: Lingard was hands-down the best running back at the camp and he participated in all of the sessions. His quickness was unmatched and in the drills it almost proved to be a disadvantage because he was slipping on the wet grass. As Lingard gets older he will learn to be in control better, but there was nobody that could cover him coming out of the backfield. His size is also impressive for a 2018 prospect.
Malik Henry
formerly of Bradenton (Fla.) IMG Academy
Recruiting wrap: Henry is committed to Florida State.
Performance: He only participated in one session on Wednesday, but Henry was clearly the best quarterback that attended any of the camps. His crisp mechanics, quick release and good footwork help him consistently throw accurate passes. Henry put zip on his passes when he needed to but could also drop the ball in over the receiver's shoulder on deep routes.
OrTre Smith (2017)
Mount Pleasant (S.C.) Wando
Recruiting wrap: Clemson is thought to be one of the main schools for Smith but South Carolina, Florida State, Tennessee and others are certainly in the mix.
Performance: Smith is a big target that can cover a lot of ground. His huge catch radius made life easy for the quarterbacks. Smith spent a lot of the one-on-one session working on perfecting his short and intermediate routes. On deep routes, Smith making the catch was pretty much automatic.
Bruce Judson (2017)
Cocoa, Fla.
Recruiting wrap: Judson is committed to Ohio State.
Performance: Judson can play on either side of the ball, but he spent most of his time at Florida State's camp at wide receiver. He has great burst and is very sudden when running his routes. Judson is pretty strong and defensive backs had a hard time effectively jamming him at the line of scrimmage. He also showed the his hands are pretty reliable.
