FSU basketball has never landed three consensus top 100 players in the same class. That level of talent is a rare thing, as evidenced by the fact that Florida State currently has three top 100 players on the entire roster, and has to compete against teams like UNC (10), Duke (10), and Louisville (9).
But ACC recruiting has been flipped on its head this year, and today Florida State is signing a national top 10 recruiting class, and - according to 247 - a class only surpassed in the ACC by Louisville.
The highlight this morning was 5* SF Dwayne Bacon signing his LOI.
Oak Hill's Dwayne Bacon (FSU), Josh Reaves (PSU), Daniel Giddens (OSU) & Andrew Fleming (Iowa) signed their LOI's, per coach Steve Smith.— Evan Daniels (@EvanDaniels) November 12, 2014
Jerry Meyer, the recruiting expert at 247, named Bacon the best scorer among ACC recruits. Bacon committed in September.
The other player to sign today will be 4* CG Terance Mann. His mother, who is the head coach at Rhode Island, will be there.
Great day today! The signing of future Rams begins and my own personal signing ceremony with @TeranceMann. Soooo excited!!!!— Daynia La-Force (@CoachLaForce) November 12, 2014
5* shooting guard Malik Beasley, named the most athletic recruit in the ACC, will sign tomorrow.
Thursday is signing day for me!! At 7:30!!! I will officially be a NOLE ✊ #blessed pic.twitter.com/J5RzzNoARE— MB5™ (@MaLiKK_5) November 10, 2014
The fourth member of the class is 7-4 center Jean Marc Christ Koumadje, who was the final commit in 2015. Koumadje, one of four D1 signees on his team, will sign today.
Now the staff can focus on landing another top class in 2016.
