TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - The quarterbacks that participated in the first day of the Jimbo Fisher Football Camp at Florida State included Dade City (Fla.) Pasco signal-caller Jacob Guy. The 6-foot-5, 200-pounder got a lot of attention from quarterbacks coach and recruiting coordinator Dameyune Craig, amongst other members of the staff.
"They are very knowledgable," Guy said of the staff at Florida State. "Each one of them, their credentials speak for themselves. They can tell you what to do. That was probably one of the best things they said, that I am very coachable. They showed me a lot of different things. Throwing that many balls probably would have put a lot of pressure on your arm, but showing me how to use the lower-half of my body probably helped a lot."
Guy was working out alongside the likes of West Orange (N.J.) Seton Hall Prep quarterback Sean Maguire, who recently pledged to the 'Noles. He said the two were both trying to get one-on-one attention from Craig.

"I think we were both hogging Coach Craig" Guy said. "He is a great guy, he is so easy to listen to and follow that we were both having the same problem, using our upper-half, and he got us to use our whole body."
After the camp session wrapped up, offensive coordinator James Coley spoke at length with Guy and his parents. An offer wasn't extended at that time, but it was made apparent to Guy that he had emerged onto the Seminoles' radar.
"They just said they are looking into it," Guy said. "I definitely helped myself today is what they all said. I think I ran a 4.8 forty which for a 6-foot-5 guy is pretty good."
"I think I will give them a call tomorrow night and see how everything is going," Guy added.
At this time, Guy currently holds two offers - Massachusetts and Western Michigan - but is also hearing from Florida, Kansas, NC State, Purdue, South Florida, and Vanderbilt. He plans to visit South Florida on Tuesday and N.C. State next Saturday.
With a decision unlikely to come any time soon, Guy is relying upon his brother - South Florida tight end Tyler Guy - for input on how to handle the process.
"Definitely my brother's input is going to be the key," Guy said. "My brother is now playing at USF so he knows what the life is and what it takes. He will influence me a lot."
"He said you better learn to listen," Guy added.
As a junior, Guy threw for 2,149 yards, 29 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions.
