FSU football has exploded onto the scene in the 2024 recruiting cycle with the wide receiver position. The Seminoles already have four pass catchers committed to the class in four-stars Camdon Frier, TJ Abrams, BJ Gibson, and Lawayne McCoy. However, as I alluded to in this article, receivers coach Ron Dugans and company want to build an offensive juggernaut around four-star quarterback commit Luke Kromenhoek.

South Florida Noles

FSU has its foot in the door with South Florida prospects as they are heavily recruiting the highly-touted Chaminade-Madonna Prep prospects. Freshman defensive back Edwin Joseph started the efforts on Twitter with the NB2FSU (NadeBoyzToFSU) tweet.

The Seminoles get five-star Joshisa “JoJo” Trader from Chaminade Madonna-Prep in Hollywood, Florida, to schedule a multi-day unofficial visit to Florida State from June 8-11. He ranks as the number three receiver prospect in the country, according to 247Sports and Rivals.

Is Jeremiah Smith considering the Noles?

FSU hosts a ton of talented prospects this summer. The coaching staff is looking to solidify the bulk of their recruiting class during this time. What better way to finish the recruiting class than acquiring the number one receiver prospect in the country with Ohio State five-star Jeremiah Smith from, you guessed it, Chaminade-Madonna Prep.

Smith will be officially visiting Florida State on June 19th. It is incredibly massive for a football program that wants to continue to build consistency of winning excellence. The talented wide receiver has a busy visit schedule in June. He also visits Florida (June 2-4), Ohio State (June 9-11), and Miami (June 21-23).


While it is a bit concerning that the nearby Miami Hurricanes have their official visit scheduled after Florida State, it gives FSU football a fighting chance in a recruitment I suggested is a long shot. For the Seminoles, there is nothing wrong about attempting to acquire highly-regarded prospects even if the position group might be crowded.

It is time to buckle up and let Coach Dugans go to work!
