Florida State has been making noise on the recruiting trail of late, but this morning the rest of the country heard a large roar. Lamont Green, Jr. is one of the most promising prospects in the 2023 class, and he just pulled the trigger for the garnet and gold.

He is the son of former ‘Nole standout Lamont Green, a team captain on the 1998 team who played with the Atlanta Falcons. We profiled Green, Jr. as part of our #TheNewBreed legacies article:
Green, who stands 6’4” and weighs 210 lbs, is an absolute force of nature with a devastating first step off the edge. He’s transitioned from linebacker to defensive end and is extremely productive for his high school, Gulliver Prep, totaling 80 tackles and 5 sacks... as a freshman against excellent competition. His upside as a pass rusher is outstanding, as he shows great bend and strength which will only develop further once he gets into a college strength and conditioning program. In a scouting report, our own CoachAB had this to say about Green, Jr.:
When I watch Lamont Green, Jr., I see Brian Burns. The body composition, the lean frame, and the explosiveness. Boots has the potential to be a player who could change the future of Florida State football.
“Boots” is very likely to become a high 4 star or 5 star prospect by the time he signs his letter of intent. Suffice to say, it’s a great day for Florida State, as they were able to lock up a huge legacy recruit.
