Unranked 2023 athlete Quindarrius Jones committed to the Noles on June 11 after a strong showing at the FSU football elite camp in early June.
The Mississippi native was an unknown to most FSU football fans before committing, as he had zero scholarship offers. However, once the Noles offered, he quickly accepted his spot in Tribe23. He’s listed as an athlete, playing both sides of the ball in high school, but FSU likes him at safety.
He was one of two unranked players to commit to the Noles in June, along with JUCO defensive end Jaden Jones.
The former is no longer unranked as Quindarrius Jones received a composite three-star ranking Tuesday. He ranks as the No. 824 player overall, No. 75 athlete, and No. 17 player in Mississippi.
That’s a fair ranking considering FSU is his only offer, and there isn’t a lot of footage available for Jones. However, I’m curious to see if that ranking improves as he becomes more well-known throughout the recruiting process.
His new ranking bumps the Noles from No. 44 to No. 37 nationally, with Jaden Jones remaining unranked. I predict he’ll likely receive a three-star ranking, as well, which would move the Noles up a little higher nationally.
FSU has nine commits total after three-star linebacker DeMarco Ward committed to the Noles Tuesday afternoon. I know FSU football fans feel like that’s a lot of three-stars, and it is, but there could be more blue-chip help on the way as FSU hosted several official visitors over the weekend.
I wrote about the potential recruiting momentum on the way Monday, so we’ll have to see who decides to join Tribe23 in the coming weeks.
Several recruits have announced their commitments since the recruiting dead period began, and I expect that trend to continue throughout July.
