Top 5 Most likely to commit to #Tribe20

In recent weeks the ‘Noles have had a surge of momentum on the recruiting trail and it has not gone unnoticed. The feel of the class is definitely on an upswing which is amazing considering FSU just came off of its worst season in decades.

But which prospects are the closest to shutting it down for the Noles and continuing the momentum in the class? Let’s take a look at the next wave of prospects who could join #Tribe20:

Richie Leonard IV

The mauler from Cocoa Beach high may be part of a potential package deal for the ‘Noles. He recently decomitted from Kentucky and has visited FSU multiple times already this spring with more visits on the horizon. He will be an interior lineman at the next level and is a high priority target for FSU. Even though he only recently decomitted don’t be surprised if he’s in the class sooner rather than later.

Caziah Holmes

The other part of the potential package deal is the electric speedster who also attends Cocoa High. He’s ran a laser timed 4.49 and is one of the most versatile prospects that FSU is recruiting, I’d actually classify him as an “OW” or offensive weapon. He’s been vocal in his love for FSU so him commiting in the next couple of months wouldn’t be a shocking development.

Jaylan Knighton

The electric running back is yet another Florida prospect the staff covets. When watching his film I get Devonta Freeman 2.0 vibes and he’s a player that would hurt a direct rival in Miami much like Freeman did in his time here. Knighton loved his FSU visit for the spring game and that momentum has been sustained by the staff. Miami has received visits from him as well but I believe FSU is still the team on the forefront of his mind with an August decision on tap.

Lawrance Toafili

The longtime target from central Florida is still on constant commit watch for FSU. He’s consistently said FSU is his “dream school” and with fellow central Florida prospect Jaiyon McCluster now in the fold it would be as good a time as any to pull the trigger. Toafili has the potential to be an athletic bruiser of a back which will present a nice change of pace in the backfield.

Arian Smith

There is one word I’d use to describe Arian Smith: “speed”. It’s really that simple. He recently won the 200 and placed 2nd in the 100-meter dashes at the Florida High school track finals. This speed translates to film as he seemingly glides across the field and erases angles with ease. There is a reason FSU has been heavily involved with him for two years now and they hope it pays off with a commitment. Arian still has to take visits to other schools but as long as FSU keeps the foot on the gas they can possibly close the deal early on in the season.
