    I thought it was a slam dunk we'd have a better class with Mullen and Co. over Taggart, but today FSU passed us in both Rivals and 247 Composite. I know both schools have a lot left on the table and anything can happen, but they were 70th just a couple weeks ago, and now they're 21st and climbing. Do not want them with a great class this year as I think a bad class could set them back quite a bit, but at this point it doesn't look like they're going to have a bad class.

    Subtract Xavier Peters. He's a non qualifier, juco bound.

    Peters won't qualify. And they won't beat us. Not to mention high energy dan will coach circles around sleepy Willie.

    We've had one commit since early signing period. (Watkins)

    Our board is littered with high 4 stars and a 5 star.

    How many spots do they have left? Well fill 7-8 of our final spots with blue chippers. Not worried at all. Especially once willie starts coaching.

    If UF could get Robinson and Lemons into UF last year, FSU can more than likely get Peters in this year. Seeing as UF was expecting him on campus last weekend, it means that the UF Admissions Department thinks he has a good chance of qualifying.

    No it doesn't. He wasn't allowed to visit. Seems pretty clear to me.

    You simply cannot equate Peters to guys from last year.....you have no idea how their academics compare.
    And to my knowledge uf still has not cleared Peters to visit.
    Certainly he may make strides in the classroom or on the test scores....but at present time he is a huge risk. And with a limited number if initial counters it isn't wise to take huge risks

    How do you know this? I've heard he's not far off from qualifying.

    Our total still reflects Russell. Subtract him and add Boykin and we jump fsu. It's that simple. They're a fraction of fraction ahead of us and they will not finish like we will.

    Can somebody who knows How to use the 247 calculator subtract Russell and add Boykin to see our total? I can't seem to add a player.

    Edit; I subtracted Russell and added Boykin and it pulls us almost even. And we've signed a kicker.

    So was shavar Manuel. All that does is bolster FSU recruiting classes year in year out. Smoke and mirrors.

    It is interesting that even with coaching changes, FSU still seems to take commitments from guys that won't qualify. That has to be to gain a perception advantage in rankings (which I'd argue is not a bad strategy, it's worked for them in the past I believe because no one really remembers the adjusted ratings after taking into account actual admits).

    Anybody with common sense knew FSU would finish with a top 10-15 class. This is NOT surprising. We both will be close to or in the top 10 after signing day

    That's the word, we couldn't even bring him for a visit. Same with Jefferson.

    Whatever happened to Shavar? That troller that he is...or should I say was?

    Haven't heard anything about him since.

    Lol

    Florida State’s 2016 recruiting class had two notable recruits fail to make it in academically. Four-star defensive endShavar Manuel and four-star linebackerKeion Joyner.

    Rather than attending FSU, both enrolled at Fort Scott C.C. in Kansas. When players enroll in JUCO it’s not always a guarantee that the team that signed them out of high school will take them back. But it looks like FSU is working to re-sign them both."

    Old article but funny. They lost 2 in 2016. It's an annual tradition for those doors.

    You are reaching. UF wouldn’t let him visit. Admissions stepped in. Even if we give you him qualifying our board is better than yours with blue chippers remaining. Plus you aren’t counting the studs we have transferring in that you simply can’t match.

    Tell the truth, are you excited about willie hire? He has no energy and isn’t generating excitement around the program. Losing a coach like Jimbo is not a good look with him going directly to another program. People can feel the pendulum swinging back UF’s way. It’s just a matter of time. The scary part the sure thing part for willie was that he would recruit lights out and everything else was a huge gamble. And he’s not even doing that. He looks early to be a placeholder until the next hire. This is your last year you will be favorites in our game for a long time and you may not even be once the season plays out.
