FSU football already had a successful 2024 recruiting class where it ranked top ten in the nation according to 247Sports Composite rankings. Most fans figured that the Seminoles would have virtually been done after the Early Signing Period in December. However, Florida State still had some unfinished business to complete.
On Wednesday, the Seminoles were able to secure a commitment from Class of 2024 four-star quarterback Trever Jackson from Jones High School in Orlando, Florida.
Yes, you read that correctly. Florida State landed another signal caller.
The Seminoles already have four-star Luke Kromenhoek enrolled on campus. However, the coaching staff felt as though it was worth taking a chance on the Orlando native. Jackson has showcased the potential of being a tremendous quarterback by being in the Elite 11. However, he struggled during his senior season at Jones High School.
According to his statistics on his 247Sports profile, he completed 56 of 101 passes (55.4%) for 916 yards with 7 touchdowns and 5 interceptions. He also had 104 carries for 855 yards and 10 touchdowns. Jackson was committed to the Ole Miss Rebels from August 26 to October 29.
Florida State has three scholarship quarterbacks on the roster in DJ Uiagalelei, Brock Glenn, and Luke Kromenhoek at this time. It is rumored that the Seminoles have decided to add Trever Jackson as a preferred walk-on. While he struggled during his senior season, this could be an opportunity to redeem himself and put his skills on display.
This is a low-risk-high-reward pickup for the Seminoles. They add another talented quarterback to their rotation without having to even potentially utilize a scholarship on him. Plus, Jackson posted on his social media account that he had already arrived in Tallahassee after committing. That is massive for his development in terms of getting acclimated to the collegiate game.
The quarterback room will be fun to monitor for years to come. Head football coach Mike Norvell, quarterbacks coach Tony Tokarz, and offensive coordinator/offensive line coach Alex Atkins will be scheming up ways for their signal callers to bring terror to opposing defenses.
