Jimbo Fisher once again did a phenomenal job on the recruiting trail for the 2017 class, leading the Seminoles to the best class in the ACC and the sixth best nationally.
Fisher and the Florida State coaching staff were able to grab four, five-star recruits in the 2017 cycle, after grabbing just one in the 2016 cycle. The four five-star recruits that will be in Tallahassee next season are RB Cam Akers, DT Marvin Wilson, DE Joshua Kaindoh, and RB Khalaan Laborn. Respectively, the four top prospects are ranked 2nd, 6th, 9th, and 26th in 247Sports’s National Rankings.
Wilson, was a National Signing Day commitment for Florida State that will surely give them momentum heading into the 2018 recruiting cycle.
Overall, the 2017 recruiting class for the Seminoles will allow the program to stay consistently at the top of the ACC. The Seminoles are off to a hart start in 2018 as well, with six commitments already.
