FSU football could be on the verge of some recruiting momentum, and 2023 blue-chip safety Avery Stuart would be a big part of it if he chooses the Noles on July 6th.

Stuart announced that commitment date not long ago in honor of his grandmother, who passed on that date.

He announced a top six consisting of FSU, Auburn, Kentucky, Arkansas, and Michigan State at the end of April.

However, he has cut the list to a top three posted via his Twitter account Saturday afternoon.

The move comes after officially visiting Kentucky on June 10, and FSU on June 24. He didn’t officially visit Auburn and won’t be able to before his commitment date due to the recruiting dead period. It’s not the gospel, but three crystal ball predictions for the Noles have come since his official visit from guys I find reputable.

I find it hard to believe he’d commit to Auburn without officially visiting, which leaves FSU and Kentucky. Stuart hails from Alabama, and Stuart unofficially visited the Noles in May, which is something he didn’t do with Kentucky.

Stuart ranks as the No. 192 player and No. 12 safety nationally. He lists at 6’2″ and 174 pounds and would be the second defensive back taken in the 2023 recruiting cycle.

FSU football sits at nine commitments, and the No. 44 ranking nationally, but the addition of Stuart would boost the Noles to No. 36 if he committed today.

Stuart is a part of several blue-chip players that could commit to the Noles this month for much-needed momentum on the recruiting trails.

The first potential domino to fall would be blue-chip defensive lineman Keldric Faulk, whose commitment date is July 5th.

Ironically, Faulk also hails from Alabama, and FSU is battling Auburn in that commitment. If FSU can land these two players, it would change the trajectory of the recruiting class.
