All comp scores are as of 3.17.21

Way-to-early "dream-and-don't-you-dare-wake-me-up" mock class#2022 in March

We can be picky with real talent coming with real intent to making the Nole name notorious…and I foresee more when our recruiting class overtakes the nation with my way-to-early "dream-and-don’t-you-dare-wake-me-up" mock class in March:

1. MJ Morris (DUAL) 5*^ (calling it here)

AND 2. Nicco Marchiol (PRO) 4* Hamilton, Chandler, AZ 0.9009 COMP


1. AJ Duffy (PRO) 4*

AND 2. Tayven Jackson (PRO) 3*

(I predict if AJ picks FSU, Nicco will stay in AZ and go to ASU instead. I have adopted faith in Dillingham and Woodson and their bonding techniques with these young men using group chat; Nicco is not going anywhere, per Nicco and his latest interview, and he's trying to bring Kevin Coleman and Kaden Saunders along...)

3. Jaylon Glover (RB) 4-3*

("package deal" with McCall)

4. Kevin Coleman (WR) 5*

(tied for lowest WR count of 8 on roster, and will want to team with Hunter and Nicco)

(also, with the de-commit of 5* Evan Stewart, he will be in WR battles with all "top" Texas schools)

5. Kaden Saunders (ATH/WR/CB) 4* PENN/FLIP (thanks Nicco)

6. Quincey McAdoo (WR/RB/DB) 4*^ 0.8900 comp

7. Antonio Williams (WR) 4^*

8. Devaughn Mortimer (WR) 4^*

9. Jaleel Skinner (WR/TE) 4*

10. Kaden Helms (TE) 4-3*

11. Devon Campbell (OG/OT/C) 5*

22/23. JaCory Thomas (ATH/OLB/CB/S/STUD) 4*

23/24. Travis Hunter (CB/WR) 5* Collins Hill, Suwanee, GA 0.9963 comp

24/25. Earl Little Jr. (CB) 5*^

25/26. Sam McCall (ATH/S/DB) 5* Lake Gibson, Lakeland, FL 0.9836 comp (also plays varsity basketball)

26/27. "Az"areyeh Thomas (ATH/S) 5* Niceville, Niceville, FL CoachWoodson (brother@GT (Juanyeh); also, basketball and T&F district longjumper)

27/28. Jacoby Mathews (S/DUAL) 5* (ala another YAC LA surprise and another varsity basketball dual-sporter)

28/29. Devin Moore (S) 4-3*

legendary class of 28/29 committed and maybe a few preferred walk-ons as well…

Jacoby Mathews (S/DUAL) 5* DEUCE (c'mon, come play with the best, Jacoby...)

Devin Moore (S) 4-3* MISS (commit ND 7/4)

My HIT rate is 11 of the projected 28/29 class, with 7 recruits committing to the program after this list. 16 players on the list are in DEUCE status, or have not committed to FSU or another school; there are several players still on the projection that are trending to FSU.

This article is not for me and my "getting it right". It is a support tool to evaluate recruiting practices and seeing trends for players by using a "way-too-early class projection" gauge. It also enables me to project the Nole2023 class, coming soon...

Let me know below in the comments whether you liked this pulse check, would care to see further updates midseason, and would be looking for the 2023 projection in the future
