Yannick Ngakoue - Bud Elliott (SB Nation)
Florida State could close as well as any school in the nation, now that it finally has most of its new coaching staff in place.
The Florida State Seminoles are expecting official visits from several top committed and uncommitted recruits. Here they are.
Not Seminole Commits
|Jalen Ramsey||CB||USC Trojans|
|Brentwood Academy (Brentwood, Tenn.)||6-0.5/189||5-star|
|Ramsey is a longtime commitment to the USC Trojans, but recently has been wavering. He also has interest in the Florida Gators.|
|Atlantic (Delray Beach, Fla.)||6-1.5/302|
Bryant was a longtime Miami commitment, but backed off in recent months. Sources in both Tallahassee and Coral Gables are confident their respective schools will land the four-star DT.
|Tashawn Bower||SDE||Auburn Tigers|
|Immaculata (Somerville, N.J.)||6-5/248||4-star|
Bower is a big defensive end who is anything but solid to Auburn. Florida State believes it can flip him. But Auburn will have the last word.
|Friendship Academy (Washington, D.C.)||6-3/240|
Ngakoue has a great relationship with new FSU defensive ends coach Sal Sunseri. He's also strongly considering South Carolina and Maryland, the school to which he was once committed.
|Lovejoy (Hampton, Ga.)||6-6/240|
Jackson is an athletic, but raw right end out of South Atlanta. He's very tight with defensive end Davin Bellamy, with whom he's visiting this weekend.
|Boyd Anderson (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.)||6-2/175|
|committed to FSU for less than a few hours. He then backed off and is considering Alabama and LSU as well.|
|Jeremy Kerr||TE||Miami Hurricanes|
|St. Petersburg (Saint Petersburg, Fla.)||6-6/262||3-star|
|Kerr is committed to Miami, but FSU has a solid shot to flip him. Many project him as an eventual offensive tackle.|
Current Seminole Commits
|Northview (Dothan, Ala.)||6-1/175|
White is a tremendous corner prospect whom Alabama is trying to sway.
|Evans (Orlando, Fla.)||6-3/215|
|Hoskins is an athletic linebacker who is quite raw.|
|C. D. Hylton (Woodbridge, Va.)||6-3/227|
|Levenberry flirted with Oklahoma and Michigan, but has remained strong in his commitment to FSU.|
|Chamblee Charter (Atlanta, Ga.)||6-5/235|
Bellamy is anything but solid to Florida State. FSU will need to recruit him like an uncommitted prospect.
|Columbus (Miami, Fla.)||5-10/170|
|First Coast (Jacksonville, Fla.)||6-2/220|
|Lyons is a former safety who lifted himself into a linebacker.|
|Levonte "Kermit" Whitfield||WR||4-star|
|Jones (Orlando, Fla.)||5-9/165|
Whitfield is extremely fast, though not a great receiver. He is also trying to visit Texas A&M, but it is unknown if the Aggies would accept his commitment, given their scholarship crunch.
|Asa College (Brooklyn, N.Y.)||6-4/260|
|Hollin committed to the Seminoles in November and has not wavered.|
