Mike Norvell’s Florida State Seminoles added an important piece to the 2025 recruiting class when four-star linebacker Ethan Pritchard out of Seminole High in Sanford committed to Florida State shortly after FSU wrapped up its 38-20 win over the Duke Blue Devils.
Pritchard chose the Seminoles over offers from the likes of the Auburn Tigers, Florida Gators, Notre Dame Fighting irish, Kentucky Wildcats, UCF Knights, Miami Hurricanes, Colorado Buffaloes and Louisville Cardinals, amongst others.
According to the 247Sports Composite Rankings, Pritchard has a 90 rating and is considered the 291st best player in his class. The sites consider him the 29th best linebacker and 41st best player in Florida. It’s encouraging to see Florida State grab a talented linebacker, as the Noles have struggled recruiting the position.
