Florida State of Recruiting Podcast: FSU gets another blue-chip lineman — what else is in store for #Tribe23?

Breaking down Florida State Seminoles football recruiting

The Florida State Seminoles continue their hot streak on the trail, with Mike Norvell and staff scooping up another crucial commitment along the trenches.

Offensive tackle Lucas Simmons has jumped aboard the Tribe ‘23 train, becoming FSU’s best true OT pledge in a decade. FSU previously secured pledges from two key prospects in defensive lineman Keldric Faulk and offensive lineman Roderick Kearney. All three are four-star, blue-chip prospects and are now the top-rated commits in FSU’s 2023 class.

What is FSU getting in Simmons, and how soon should he see the field? Will Florida State be adding to its 2023 class soon, with July decisions expected from QB Brock Glenn, RB Daylan Smothers, and potentially more targets? Plus, the guys discuss recent reaction to controversial comments from 2024 DB Desmond Ricks.

The Three Stars (Josh Pick, Tim Alumbaugh, and David Stout) jump on to talk all that and more on the latest edition of the Florida State of Recruiting.
