Florida State football, recruiting news: FSU enters 2023 surrounded by hype

Way too early top 25 rankings have FSU firmly entrenched in the top ten

Congratulations to the Georgia Bulldogs back-to-back National Champions. The season is officially in the books which means its time for some way-too-early top 25 rankings and the masses are feeling the Seminoles.

Highest ranking: No. 3 on one ballot

Not only has Florida State cleaned up in the portal for the 2023 recruiting cycle, but the Seminoles were one of the nation’s hottest teams exiting the season and got great news with quarterback Jordan Travis along with top defender Jared Verse announced their respective returns. That gives Florida State a pair of All-American candidates on both sides of the football, not to mention impressive talent elsewhere in the skill spots. The Seminoles will be one of the nation’s most hyped teams in 2023.

FSU’s next official game will be vs. LSU in Orlando and the hype train is about to get rolling on the likely top-ten match-up.

SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey is concerned about the Early Signing Period; my opinion is that it should be in August.

It’s likely too late to do anything about FSU’s disappointing season but I’m going to enjoy these next 15 games of watching Baba Miller:


The entire football world rallied around Damar Hamlin including FSU’s most famous No. 3:
