If Florida State Seminoles football hope to ascend back to the top of college football, they need to increase their footprint in the state of Florida. Luckily for Coach Norvell, the Tallahassee area is ripe with talent for the 2021 class.
One of those studs is safety Terrion Arnold, who announced on August 28 that Florida State made his top 11 list, along with Alabama, Georgia, Oklahoma, Georgia Tech, USC, Texas A&M, Miami, Tennessee, LSU and Florida:
As most people know I have been taking my recruitment slow and trying to find the best fit for me. With that being said these are the schools I will be continuing with... The journey is just beginning #11 pic.twitter.com/xTPz5mxFOy— Terrion Arnold (@ArnoldTerrion) August 28, 2020
A 4-star safety, Arnold hails from St. John Paul II High School in Tallahassee. He measures in at 6’2, 185 pounds and routinely destroys opponent’s skill players. Tomahawk Nation provided a mini scout of Arnold’s game in our safety State of Recruiting article:
Arnold’s a violent striker, de-cleating offensive ball carriers regularly. He wraps up his tackles and is fundamentally sound. His athleticism pops on both sides of the ball, as he’s a threat to take it to the house anytime he touches the ball.
The blue-chip prospect has visited the Tallahassee campus several times and has established a connection with the current staff.

“I’ve visited three times,” Arnold said in an interview with our Josh Pick in March. “They’re making me their main priority. Coach Norvell said he wants to build a defense around me.”
“They want to use my return ability how Deion Sanders was in the return game and play me at free safety and corner.”
