Florida State of Recruiting: FSU heating up on the trail

Seminoles now have a top ten class after a huge month

Mike Norvell’s Florida State Seminoles football program is wrapping up its best month ever with commitments from five-star cornerback prospect Charles Lester III and four-star offensive lineman Manasse Itete, who recently decommitted from Lincoln Riley’s USC Trojans.

Those two commits have placed Florida State in the top ten of the cumulative rankings from the two top recruiting services, with On3 Industry Rankings considering the Seminoles’ current 2024 commitments the No. 5 class with an average rating of 91.46, while the 247Sports Composite Rankings have FSU at No. 7 with a 90.97 average.

It’s been too long, but the Three Stars reconvened to discuss all that’s going on in the world of Florida State recruiting — and there is plenty, including:

  • How big was the commitment of Lester and how would you describe his game? (he’s been a silent since June)
  • A little background on Itete’s recruitment and how he projects at the next level.
  • Speaking of offensive linemen, who does Tomahawk Nation recruiting analyst NoleThruAndThru think has the highest ceiling between Itete and fellow commits Jonathan Daniels and Tye Hylton?
  • Can FSU offensive coordinator Alex Atkins flip another blue-chip OL from SC?
  • How do we feel about some of the other July commits, including wide receiver Elijah Moore and Tallahassee running back Micahi Danzy?
