2010 Signing Class (Ranked No. 1 in ACC, No. 7 Nationally)

Top Player: Lamarcus Joyner / DB (Fort Lauderdale St. Thomas Aquinas)

It was a fresh start to the Fisher era in Tallahassee, as the new head coach signed 23 players – with eight of them being either four or five stars. One of the highlight recruits was a five star cornerback from South Florida who was maybe pound for pound one of the best to play for the Seminoles.

Joyner went back and forth between cornerback and safety during his time with FSU football, finally settling on the edge during his senior season in 2013. Already one of the nation’s best players in the secondary, Joyner ended up with 69 tackles, two interceptions, three forced fumbles and – something you don’t normally see from a DB – five and a half sacks before leaving school a national champion.

Honorable Mention: WR Kenny Shaw, LB Telvin Smith, LB Christian Jones
