FSU football coaches had a four-star QB committed for the 2023 recruiting class in Chris Parson and were in the mix for another blue-chip QB in Brock Glenn.
However, Parson’s de-commitment last month, along with Glenn announcing a commitment to Ohio State Saturday afternoon, has the Noles back at square one for 2023 QB recruiting. I wrote about the impact of Glenn choosing Ohio State Saturday so I won’t delve into that too much.
As I mentioned, it’s not the end of the world because 99 percent of FSU football hadn’t heard of Brock Glenn three months ago, and Chris Parson has only gotten scholarship offers from FAMU and Vanderbilt since de-committing.
I’m not taking a shot at those guys, as both have talent and could develop into solid college quarterbacks, but neither were immediate impact guys, and FSU didn’t need them to be with 2022 blue-chip AJ Duffy enrolled.
That also means there likely isn’t that much difference between those two players and whoever FSU targets next.
Parson was a three-star when he committed, and Glenn just became a four-star a couple of weeks ago.
The good news is the coaching staff had been keeping an eye on some other recruiting targets as they continued to evaluate players, so they had prepared for this scenario. The question is, how much do they expand the 2023 QB recruiting board?
