The Skinny on FSU & TE Kaden Helms

Kaden Helms is the first tight end to check out the FSU campus during this recruiting cycle, and that happened in early March.

I also get the impression he has done a lot of homework on the ways that Norvell uses tight ends in his offense. And he feels very good with Chris Thomsen as the tight ends coach.
