HOT PROSPECTS: The Seminoles are on track for a ninth consecutive top-10 recruiting class with commitments from nine of Rivals' top 250 prospects (only LSU, Ohio State, Clemson and Georgia have more). Taylor — the nation's top-rated cornerback — is the only five-star commit. Early enrollee Aguayo will likely replace his brother Roberto as the starting kicker. Dual-threat QB Henry is a top-50 talent, expected to contend for the starting job by 2017. Cook is the cousin of FSU star Dalvin Cook and the latest member of a Miami Central pipeline that includes Devonta Freeman and Da'Vante Phillips.
