Recruiting

247 recently took a survey of some of its national analysts (including our former dad, who left to go get recruiting takes on our birthday and never came back) to rank the recruiters in the state of Florida, and Seminoles head coach Mike Norvell came in fourth, with one second-place nod.

If there’s one thing our film crew will never get tired of, it’s breaking down five-star commit Travis Hunter’s film. CoachAB dives into what makes the 2022 prospect arguably the best in the class.

Nyjalik Kelly, a fellow 2022 FSU commit, is a three-star prospect that has flown under the radar despite traits befitting a blue-chip. CoachAB took the time to break down his film, showcasing what Norvell and staff saw long before the Dillard High School prospect blew up.

2023 offensive lineman Tyler “Bubba” Jeffries, a 6’5 305 pound offensive lineman from Tennessee, received an FSU offer yesterday.
