Top ten most hyped recruits of all time

A question was posed on the latest recruting thread (2013) but it was about MEJ (2012) and asked if he is the "best" recruit FSU has ever had. The responses, to some degree, morphed into the "best" player FSU ever had but if we want to compare MEJ to them, we'll have to wait 3 or 4 years before that comparison can take place. If we look at the most "hyped" recruits then we can start to compare MEJ with other FSU recruits of years gone by. It's difficult, if not impossible, to go past 1990 in looking at this since recruiting rankings and hype are a thing of the last 20 to 25 years or so. The Ron Simmons of the world didn't have the opportunity to sit in front of a national tv audience and choose from among three hats. But I digress. IMHO, three of the most "hyped" recruits for FSU had disappointing careers here. At least when compared to the hype. I hope MEJ doesn't become number four. Lorenzo Booker was the 2002 National Gatorade player of the year. He also made the top 10 most hyped player list. Travis Minor was the 1997 National Gatorade player of the year. Marquette Smith was the 1991 National Gatorade player of the year. FSU fans can hardly remember these guys now but, when they inked on the bottom line with FSU, many celebrated and had visions of two-time All Americans running through their heads. Just food for thought.
