FSU football only has one defensive back committed to their 2024 recruiting class, with three-star safety CJ Heard from Woodward Academy in Atlanta, Georgia.
However, defensive back coach Patrick Surtain Sr. and company are planning on acquiring more highly-touted prospects to pair alongside him.
The Seminoles just had a massive recruiting weekend, which consisted of 14 official visitors that visited campus.
One notable prospect on the defensive side of the football that officially visited was four-star cornerback Jalewis Solomon from Schley County High School in Ellaville, Georgia.
After his official visit, he met with various members of the media, where he explained that FSU was the top school in his recruitment. However, he stated that he would hopefully decide around August or September (which could be sooner).
However, Solomon posted on his Twitter account last night that he had a surprise for today. This action immediately had FSU fans wondering what it could be.
Overall, the Seminoles are looking for recruiting momentum since the program has not seen a commitment since April 17, 2023, when five-star tight end Landen Thomas flipped his pledge from Georgia to Florida State.
On Monday afternoon, Solomon released his top five schools list, including schools like Florida State, Auburn, Texas A&M, Kentucky, and South Carolina.
The talented defensive back had a busy official visit schedule, which featured South Carolina (June 2-4), Kentucky (June 16-18), and Florida State (June 23-25). He also mentioned that he could officially visit Auburn and Texas A&M before deciding.
The recruiting dead period takes effect from June 27 to July 24, and the coaching staff cannot have any face-to-face contact with prospects during that timeframe.
FSU has two cornerback targets that will be making their decisions in the month of July, with five-star Charles Lester III from Venice, Florida, and four-star Ricky Knight III from Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.
Can the coaching staff convince Solomon to announce in the month of July as well?
