YOUNGER PLAYERS GETTING OPPORTUNITIES

With all of the opt-outs, there will be a couple of true freshmen that will attempt to make the most of their opportunities such as wide receivers Hykeem Williams, Destyn Hill, and Vandrevius Jacobs, quarterback Brock Glenn, linebacker Blake Nichelson, cornerbacks Quindarrius Jones and Ja'Bril Rawls, and safeties Conrad Hussey and KJ Kirkland.

These young players will try to create a sizable role for themselves for the 2024 season. While fans can say that these bowl games are meaningless, they mean everything to these players who want to become household names.

Not only will the younger players get their opportunity to shine, but they will also gain a sense of resiliency in a bowl game where everyone is counting out the Florida State Seminoles. It won't be easy, but these freshmen will grow from their experiences. Outside of the game, it will also teach them a valuable lesson in the grand scheme of life when there are obstacles that get in the way.
