Florida State could still be in for some national signing day drama as the Seminoles wait on the decisions of at least five top-150 prospects: OT Landon Dickerson, LB Dontavious Jackson, CB Trayvon Mullen (Coconut Creek), DE Brian Burns (Plantation American Heritage) and CB Carlos Becker (Kissimmee Osceola).

A good haul could make the 'Noles contenders for the No. 1 class in the country. Regardless, this will likely be FSU's most unpredictable signing day since 2012, when the 'Noles landed star DT Eddie Goldman, DB Ronald Darby and got LB Reggie Northrup to flip from Miami. All three contributed to FSU's 2013 national title team.
