It’s been a busy summer on the recruiting trail for the Florida State Seminoles coaching staff as they continue to shape the future of this roster. One of the biggest keys to that will be solidifying the trenches and recent offensive line commit Roderick Kearney looks to be the centerpiece of that effort going forward. This week, he joined our Florida State of Recruiting podcast for an interview about FSU, Alex Atkins and much more. Check it out to hear from Big Rod, a leader of the Noles for the future.
New offensive coordinator Alex Atkins was a huge part in landing Kearney and many other commits this offseason. He’s been an incredible asset on the recruiting trail for FSU so the question is how does he rank in compared to other Florida State’s other top recruiters of the past decade. David Stout tries to tackle that answer.
