FSU football head coach Jimbo Fisher is one of the sport’s elite recruiters and has gotten some gifts in that area during his time with the ‘Noles.
It’s a cliché, but it’s also true: recruiting is the life blood of every college football program. FSU football has an inherent advantage in recruiting due to the state of Florida being one of the most talent-laden states in the country. Still FSU must compete with two other major in state programs as well as the elite program’s from around the country looking to infiltrate Florida and lure the top talent to their schools.
Jimbo Fisher did not inherit the type of roster he desired when he took over as head coach of FSU football. Since then Fisher has established his self as one of the great recruiters in all of the sport. Fisher has pulled in enough talent to be one of the premiere programs in the country over his tenure, recording three conference championships and a national title in his first seven seasons as a head coach.
