Mike Norvell and the Florida State Seminoles will kick off the first day of spring practice on Saturday, March 5. And as exciting as that would be under normal circumstances, the staff has also chosen to simultaneously host an Elite Junior Day recruiting event which will include some serious talent in the Class of 2023.
While other programs held their first big 2023 recruiting kick-off events last month, FSU has chosen the strategy of including many of their top targets on a very important day for the 2022 season. The ‘Noles will be integrating fresh faces and looking for many players to take the next step, and many talented 2023 (as well as 2024 and 2025) targets will be there to see it all up close and personally.
The Three Stars broke down the names to know among the weekend visitors in their first #Tribe23 podcast.
