FSU football is in the No. 21 spot nationally with its 2024 recruiting class. It has 11 commits and seven blue-chip players, all hailing from Florida and Georgia, for a 64 percent blue-chip ratio.
If that ratio held, it would be the highest in the Mike Norvell era. It’s not crazy to think that won’t be the case, despite the pessimism of some FSU football fans.
FSU coaches hosted a double-digit number of blue-chip players for official visits in June, and the expectation is good news is on the way, according to a couple of FSU commits like Luke Kromenhoek and Camdon Frier.
Florida’s recent surge up the recruiting rankings has some fans acting off of emotion, failing to understand every program has its process. Nobody in the know expected FSU to go on a run of crazy commits before the June 23 weekend, with the largest number of visits slated.
One thing you didn’t see? Mike Norvell looking to go away from their process based on what other programs were doing.
They didn’t accept commitments from fringe guys that were not high on their recruiting board just to try to make it appear that they were doing something on the recruiting trail.
That’s a veteran move that will pay off in the long run with some big-time targets, especially if FSU has the season many expect. Let’s get into some specific thoughts on 2024 recruiting.
