FSU Recruiting: Will Noles best rivals Florida and Miami in 2019?

FSU recruiting needs to win the state of Florida and beyond to beat its rivals in the 2019 recruiting class.

It’s a long way to the finish line for FSU recruiting in the 2019 recruiting cycle. Most fans expected the Noles to do much better on the field than what they produced with its 5-7 record and losses to both Miami and Florida.

However, despite a poor season the Noles seem to have more momentum on the recruiting trails between the three rival schools.

Can the Noles beat the Gators and Canes on the recruiting trails after all the shortcomings the Noles faced in 2018?

There’s a great shot for that to happen. FSU recruiting is currently the highest rated class between the three schools per 247Sports Composite Rankings.

  • No. 14 FSU (15 commitments), 80 percent blue chip, 92.20 average per player
  • No. 20 Florida (18 commitments), 55.5 percent blue chip, 89.45 average per player
  • No . 29 Miami (14 commitments), 50 percent blue chip, 88.61 average per player

Thoughts

As you can see the Noles have the highest ranked class in every conceivable category. The important thing to look at is the blue chip percentage.

FSU is killing Florida and Miami when it comes to quality ratings among the players committed. FSU is in the mix for several blue chip recruits like Kayvon Thibodeaux, Will Putnam, Raymond Woodie III, Marcus Banks, Avery Huff (Miami commit) and a host of transfers.

One thing that could bring FSU’s average down some is the number of offensive linemen they are likely to bring in this class.

They will take at least three more in this class and could take more depending on how the numbers shake out with a few commits planning to early enroll.

There could some shake up among the FSU recruiting class, but the commitments are mostly solid. Either way it’s an impressive haul despite how the season went for the Noles on the field.

At least it looks like they are gearing up to go on another run against the Gators and Canes.
