FSU football has the tenth-best recruiting class in the 2024 cycle according to 247Sports Composite. The Seminoles recently landed talented four-star defensive end Amaree Williams from The Benjamin School in North Palm Beach (FL).

However, the majority of their class signed their National Letter of Intent during the Early Signing Period in December. That is the nature of the beast when it comes to the landscape of college football recruiting.

It makes me feel so incredibly old now to remember a time when the National Signing Day in February was of great importance. Several fans would take off (play hooky) school/work to watch the Signing Day coverage on ESPN. There would be surprises left and right that would ultimately change the narrative of the program for years to come.

However, that is not the case anymore as the February Signing Day Period is essentially non-existent for the amount of recruits who are choosing to take their talents to Tallahassee. With that being said, I do not want to be dismissive of the young men that made their intentions known because this is a huge moment for them and their loved ones.

Here is list of preferred walk-ons that announced their commitments:

-RB Lazarius Parks (Crestview High School in Crestview, FL)

-WR Willy Suarez (Jesuit High School in Tampa, FL)

-TE Luke Douglas (Jupiter High School in Jupiter, FL- played QB)

-DE William Ross (Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL)

-LB Gavin Holman (Berkeley Prep in Tampa, FL)

Like head football coach Mike Norvell alluded to all of the time in his press conferences, they want the players who say "yes" to this university. This speaks to the culture that Norvell has built during his tenure in Tallahassee.

Preferred walk-ons do not get the recognition that they deserve, and it is wonderful to see these young men accomplishing their lifelong dreams.
