It feels like forever since we saw FSU football in action(for real in the ACC championship game last December). The team has experienced many changes since, with a few players entering the portal and several opting to declare for the NFL. FSU had 12 players invited to the NFL Combine, and most put on incredible performances to boost their draft stock. I wrote about the six biggest winners here. The 2024 team will enter a new realm without Jordan Travis as the starting quarterback. He became the starter permanently about midway through 2021. Akeem Dent, Kalen DeLoach, Fabien Lovett, and Jarrian Jones will no longer be a part of the FSU defense, as they had been on the team since Mike Norvell first coached at FSU in 2020.

Mike Norvell has threaded the needle between high school and transfer portal recruiting to bring FSU football back to prominence, and what he did after the regular season was no different. FSU signed its best high school recruiting class under Norvell and enrolled arguably its most talented crop of transfers. That's saying a lot, considering the talent FSU just lost. The coaching staff has been in a similar spot before, entering the 2022 spring camp with a ton of new faces who were not as proven as the guys they have now. The expectations remain to win the ACC and make the College Football Playoff for the opportunity to compete for a national title(without getting jerked by the Playoff Invitational Committee). Here are five huge questions as the Noles begin 2024 spring camp this week.
