Florida State recruiting: The remaining targets for National Signing Day

The Nolecast breaks down the top prospects remaining on FSU’s board.

Update 1/28: Officially removed Willie Gay and Maleik Gray from the “targets” list. While FSU was still recruiting them, we noted that they were longshots unless they visited. To our knowledge, neither have visited.

Just a week. That is all that separates the Florida State Seminoles and National Signing Day. Under Jimbo Fisher, the Seminoles have been prolific recruiters.

As of Thursday morning, Florida State sits at 21 commitments. Ten of those are rated four- or five-stars. It has six of the nation’s top-100 players committed or enrolled. FSU sits at No. 5 nationally, and if it closes well, could move up to 4th.

Let’s go over who Florida State has, and who it still wants, in the latest edition of The Nolecast.

Henry Ruggs is an elite WR recruit

It sounds like Florida State Seminoles Football's visit with Henry Ruggs went extremely well. Some think he is the best receiver in the country. Can FSU beat out Alabama Football for him?
