Hot prospects: This class so far is considered average, perhaps because coach Jimbo Fisher has lost six assistants from last season's staff. The Seminoles have not lured any five-star recruits. Miami Washington five-star WR Matthew Thomas is said to be deciding between Alabama and FSU. The other five-star recruits listed by have either orally committed to another school or do not have FSU listed as a choice. The hope for Fisher is to get some top recruits to flip, as St. Petersburg TE Jeremy Kerr did after first committing to Miami.
