WILL THE COACHING STAFF GET ONE OF THEIR BIGGEST TARGETS: SMITH, MCCRAY, OR WHITE?

The coaching staff does not have many targets left on their recruiting board to go after. However, five-star wide receiver Jeremiah Smith (Ohio State commit), five-star defensive lineman LJ McCray (Florida commit), and three-star defensive tackle D'Nas White.

Let's begin with the talented offensive weapon in five-star pass catcher Jeremiah Smith. While he has been committed to the Buckeyes since December 2022, the Chaminade-Madonna Prep has shown mutual interest in Florida State. The Seminoles do have four wide receivers committed to their class, but Smith is welcomed with open arms if he wants to sign with Florida State. With that being said, it will be difficult to pull him away from Ohio State with his relationship with coach Brian Hartline.

Next on the list is five-star defensive lineman LJ McCray from Mainland High School in Daytona Beach (FL). He has been committed to the arch-rival Florida Gators since October. There was speculation leading up to the commitment that the Seminoles had the advantage, but the talented defensive lineman ended up pledging to head football Billy Napier and company. Can Florida State be able to take advantage of the Gators' struggles on the field?

Lastly, three-star defensive tackle D'Nas White from Jay M. Robinson High School in Concord (NC) remains a priority for the Seminoles. He will be making his decision between Florida State, Tennessee, and Miami. The North Carolina native officially visited FSU on the weekend of December 8th. He has taken a couple of trips to Tallahassee this fall. With the Seminoles only having one defensive tackle pledged to the program in three-star Jamorie Flagg, White seems to potentially be the next line to join.
