Hot prospects: Depending on who you believe, this class is ranked between third and seventh nationally. But Edwards, whose father played at FSU, has softened on the Seminoles in recent weeks. And Winston is a top-notch baseball player — maybe a first-round pick. Quarterback is a need with EJ Manuel entering his senior season, and that was addressed with Winston and Maguire. On defense, six of the seven commitments received four or five stars from Rivals.com.
