FSU football completed their second scrimmage Saturday, and it was a mixed bag with the defense getting the better of offense.
I don’t want to take too much away from a situational scrimmage with a mixture of starters and backups going against one another.
Some fans seem worried on social media about the narratives coming out of the two scrimmages, but the recruits in attendance were all about FSU football.
The Noles led and were in the mix for several quality players before Saturday, and those relationships only seemed to get stronger after their visit. That’s one thing people are not giving this coaching staff enough credit for right now.
The recruiting dead period is still in effect, yet this staff has gotten several recruits on campus over the past couple of weeks. Several players have verbally stated they plan to attend FSU’s spring game on Saturday, April 10th.

I know 247 Sports Crystal Balls are nowhere near the end all be all in terms of who a player will commit to, but usually, they provide some insight into recruiting. It also depends on who posts a crystal ball. These players received predictions for FSU Sunday:
- 2022 Kanaya Charlton: 3-star offensive guard
- 2023 Raymond Cottrell: One of the top wide receivers in Florida
- 2022 Qua’shon Sapp: 4-star offensive tackle
All of these players have three FSU crystal ball predictions made in the past couple of days. Recruiting is all about momentum, and the Noles had a ton of it earlier this year with multiple commits from quality players.
Spring games are a great time to get players back on campus, and I wouldn’t be surprised if we didn’t see a few players commit between now and then. So much for the Mike Norvell and staff can’t recruit narrative folks were trying to push, huh?
