FSU football state of recruiting: Running Back

Checking in on Florida State’s running back recruiting for Tribe 21.

Jaylin White

All recruiting activity has been placed on hold until April 15th. We’ll use this newly enacted dead period to evaluate Florida State’s recruiting position by position. This is not meant to be an all inclusive list, but a snapshot of which players are trending with FSU.

Last time around, we reviewed the quarterback position. Today, we’ll take a look at the running back position. In the 2020 class, Florida State brought in two true running backs in Lawrance Toafili (high school) and La’Damian Webb (JUCO). In addition, the Seminoles also added Corey Wren and Ja’Khi Douglas, both players will see time at running back and receiver.

Based on Coach Mike Norvell’s running backs usage, the assumption is that Florida State will add two running backs in the 2021 class.

Current commit(s): None

Trending target(s):

Jaylin White. 5’10 185 pound 4-star out of Dothan High School (Dothan, AL). He visited Florida State on March 7th and received an offer the next day. White does a great job of patiently waiting for his blockers and for the play to develop. Once the lanes are there, he explodes through the hole.

Ricky Parks. 5’10, 190 pound 3-star back from Gaither High School (Tampa, FL). Parks received an offer from FSU in January. He visited Tallahassee at the beginning of February. Parks is an athletic back that can really turn on the jets once he gets to the edge.

K’Wan Powell. 5’9, 190 pound unranked (though 247 has him as a 3-star) out of Vernon High School (Vernon, FL). Powell was offered under the old staff in June of 2018. He visited Florida State on March 7th. Powell is a do-everything player for his high school team and has breakaway speed in the open field.

Currently, these are the running backs that have been attached to Florida State over the last few weeks. It’s safe to expect new names to pop up as the season continues.
