Florida State football recruiting update into the dead period

New, comments

FSU has three weeks to evaluate its recruiting board and make some decisions.

Bud Elliott and Ingram Smith return with the 28th Nolecast episode of 2018. The Nolecast is the No. 1 Florida State Seminoles podcast.

Listen in the player below this article, or on Apple Podcasts (iTunes), Stitcher, or Google Play Music

FSU landed two commitments in the last week from Derick Hunter and Curtis Fann. Bud and Ingram break down what they can do for FSU, and evaluate the chances that they stick in the class.

The pair then discuss FSU’s recruiting strategy. What do you when more kids want in the class than you can take?

Updates on official visits and unofficial visits of Nick Cross, Michael Johnson Jr., and Will Putnam. Is Johnson Jr., or any other QB a take at this point?

Updates on two kids who committed elsewhere.

Athlon Sports ranked Willie Taggart 36th nationally in its coaching list. We reveal what Athlon is missing throughout the list.

What is the strategy behind when FSU allows official visits?

How in the world is UF missing on its top targets with such regularity?

Listener questions

  • Does Willie hold grudges against certain staffs and try and steer certain recruits that he won’t land away from said staff?
  • How many players do we take in the 2019 class and any names you know that should be showing up at the end of summer event?
  • Why is FSU having trouble gaining traction with blue-chip Offensive Tackles this cycle? We seem to be doing great at guard, but tackle seems to be up in the air right now?
  • FSU just landed two blue chip commits who had no FSU “crystal balls”. It seems like this staff operates a lot more stealthily on the trail than the previous one, fewer leaks, etc. Would you say this is accurate?
