As the dust settles at the conclusion of Fourth of July, FSU football got commitments from four-star wide receiver Elijah Moore from Olney, Maryland and three-star safety Rydarrius Morgan from Phenix City, Alabama.
With both prospects now in the fold, the Seminoles rank No. 13 in the 247Sports Composite rankings.
It has been a relatively successful month of July for FSU as they have also secured commitments from four-star defensive end Daniel “DD” Holmes from Washington, DC and four-star cornerback Ricky Knight III from West Palm Beach, Florida.
However, I understand that some fans felt this Fourth of July “fireworks” considered an underwhelming day, given that both Moore and Morgan have been trending in the Seminoles’ favor for a couple of days now.
Then five-star offensive tackle Jonathan Daniels stated on Twitter Monday night that he had a big announcement, which turned into dropping a top three schools list that featured Florida State, Georgia, and Kentucky (schools that he officially visited).
However, FSU is trending in a favorable position for other targeted prospects such as five-star cornerback Charles Lester III, four-star running back Micahi Danzy, four-star cornerback Jalewis Solomon, three-star cornerback Kevin Levy, three-star offensive tackle Tye Hylton, who all could make their decisions by early August.
The coaching staff has done a tremendous job of being proactive this recruiting cycle. If they like a prospect, they aggressively pursue them. By the end of the summer, they should have the majority of their recruiting class done and can afford to be selective in finding the right fit for their program.
As we continue the rest of the summer, FSU football will look to build upon their recruiting class with remaining positional needs such as offensive linemen, defensive linemen, and linebackers.
Overall, this is recruiting class that could be one to remember for Seminole fans as the program looks to generate sustainable success for years to come.
