We've established that teams in the BCS era that win National Championships bring in at least 50 percent four- and five-star prospects over the previous four classes. And Florida State under Jimbo Fisher has done just that, only being out-recruited by a handful of schools during his tenure.
Each Thursday, we take a look at some junior scouting reports for some of Florida State's targets. It's a bit early for a recruiting board, as FSU's board is far from settled. That will come in late March.
George Campbell recruit scouting report: Can elite athlete become great receiver? There is no doubt that George Campbell, one of FSU's top receiver targets, is a great athlete. But his hands are a persistent issue. How much of that can be taught? I honestly don't know. I'm sure every college will think they can coach his hands up and that athleticism is too much to pass up.
Jovon Robinson recruit scouting report: 2015's best running back? The one-time Auburn signee ended up at JUCO and he is scary good. Alabama seems to lead FSU and Georgia here. Ordinarily, I don't think FSU would take a JUCO back, but Robinson is at a talent level that changes the rules.
Tim Settle recruit scouting report: Defensive tackle changes the game Settle looks like an ideal three-technique tackle. FSU has offered and is in the mix for the Virginia star, but probably behind Ohio State, Alabama and maybe Virginia.
Josh Rosen recruit scouting report: California's best quarterback? FSU has offered, but he plans to decide on March 20, and it's unlikely he'd pick FSU without having visited. UCLA fans feel pretty confident about this one.
Two who committed elsewhere
Mitch Hyatt recruit scouting report: Offensive tackle is college-ready He's a Clemson legacy and a really good one.
Tyler Jordan recruit scouting report: Versatile offensive lineman Jordan picked up a lot of good offers of late and committed to UF, as expected.
