Florida State is making waves on the recruiting trail

Florida State and its new staff have turned up the heat on the recruiting trail. The Seminoles have added five more players to their 2019 class since April 9. And the momentum doesn't seem to be slowing down either. Willie Taggart and his revamped staff are making headway with a bevy of talented prospects who have yet to announce their commitment. Four-star quarterback Sam Howell started the landslide of commitments on Monday, April 9. The following Saturday, four more players pledged to FSU. T

Renardo Green: "It was my dream school."

Florida State added six total commitments from April 9 to April 16. Four-star quarterback Sam Howell started the landslide of pledges. Four more committed at the spring game, and Renardo Green capped things off with his commitment on Monday, April 16. Green unofficially visited FSU for the spring game on April 14. The following Monday, Harlon Barnett informed Green that he was being offered a scholarship by the `Noles. The three-star cornerback committed on the spot.

Monday Mailbag: Record predictions, off the field issues, and Tribe19

We’ve officially hit the dead period for Florida State football. The Seminoles won’t reconvene for practice again until August. Now, the focus is back to offseason workouts and making sure the players are in shape for the season. Typically around this time, the quarterbacks set up 7-on-7’s so they can continue to build their chemistry with their teammates. The coaches are getting back on the recruiting trail to continue the momentum that Tribe 19 has currently garnered.

Mike Morris: "My dream was to be a `Nole."

Florida State’s recruiting has been taking off under Willie Taggart. Tribe19 has added five commitments since April 9. The class ascended to No. 1 in the country earlier this week before falling to No. 3 behind Oklahoma and Alabama. But Tribe19 didn’t just begin earlier in April. It started on February 27, 2016, when four-star defensive end Michael Morris Jr. decided to commit to the Seminoles. He was the first member of this class and his pledge has held strong for over two years.

Jaleel McRae: "Teams are gonna be scared to play us."

Florida State’s spring game gave a bevy of talented prospects their first chance to see the Seminoles in action. It also allowed recruits to get more of a feel for the coaching staff, players, and school. Four-star linebacker Jaleel McRae arrived in Tallahassee without an offer. After garnering one during his meeting with Willie Taggart, he felt like it was time to do something. McRae and his teammate, four-star OG Dontae Lucas, both decided to pledge to FSU. The duo currently plays together at IMG Academy and are now recruiting some high-caliber recruits from the school to become `Noles with them.

Florida State and Willie Taggart are on fire on the recruiting trail. The Seminoles landed five commitments last week, including four on Saturday at the spring game. Four of those pledges will join Tribe19 while the other becomes the second commitment in the 2020 class. Tons of other uncommitted prospects also made their way to Tallahassee and seemed to come away very impressed. One of those players is No. 1 overall recruit and five-star defensive end Kayvon Thibodeaux.

Three observations from Florida State’s spring football game

Florida State wrapped up its spring with a 31-13 victory by the Gold team in the annual spring game. The Seminoles showed off plenty of progress, and room for growth, on both sides of the ball. Khalan Laborn stood out on the ground, finishing with 13 carries for 140 yards and two scores. One of those touchdowns was a 91-yard burst up the middle where Laborn outran everybody. Tamorrion Terry and DJ Mathews led the way through the air. Terry caught five passes for 129 yards and a score. Mathews h

Garnet and Gold game: Defense Bold Prediction

Florida State’s defense made the switch from Charles Kelly to Harlon Barnett over the offseason during Willie Taggart’s transition. Barnett comes to Tallahassee after spending much of his coaching career at Michigan State. While Kelly’s scheme revolved more around difficult zone concepts, Barnett will implement a much simpler scheme. The goal? For his defenders to think less and attack more. No longer will the Seminoles have complex assignments that require multiple reads. They’ll have one read to attack on every play.
