Coach Mike Norvell and Florida State will host their first recruiting weekend of 2020 this Saturday. With only three weekends left before the February 5th signing day, the Seminoles still have needs at several positions. This will be FSU’s first recruiting weekend with the full staff now on campus. Let’s look at which positions Florida State will look to land commits.

Running back

Cam Akers made the decision to turn pro, leaving Florida State with only two experienced running backs on scholarship for the 2020 season. Unfortunately, both Khalan Laborn and Anthony Grant come with question marks. The Seminoles were able to add Lawrance Toafili during the early signing period to bring the running back room to three scholarship players plus walk-ons. Help could also come from transfer Jashaun Corbin, but he’ll require an waiver for 2020 and need to be fully healed. FSU hopes to address this need starting this weekend when JUCO running back Ladamian Webb and lightning fast athlete Corey Wren visit.

Webb, who averaged over 100 yards per game for his JUCO team this year has one key quality that makes him important to FSU, that he can step on campus and contribute immediately. With Norvell’s running back history, having college ready players available is a key to the team’s success.

When recruiting sites and scouts describe Corey Wren, the one word you always see is “Fast”. Wren has the ability to use his speed at several spots including running back and slot receiver.

Offensive line

I don’t think we have to remind anyone just how dreadful the offensive line has been the last few years at Florida State. If Coach Norvell is to succeed in Tallahassee, he must land offensive lineman, especially offensive tackles. Enter Robert Scott, a 6’6 offensive tackle currently committed to Ole Miss. FSU will work to flip the 3-star player will also battling the home State Arkansas Razorbacks for his commitment.


FSU has had success at landing defensive backs over the last few cycles and will look to add another recruit this weekend in safety Donovan Kaufman. The Vanderbilt commit was one of Norvell’s first offers when arriving at FSU, he was also being recruited by Norvell’s Memphis staff.

Due to the proximity of Norvell’s hire date and the Early Signing Period, Florida State finds itself playing catch up for many recruits. This first weekend could prove to be a huge step in making up ground for the 2020 class. Keep checking in all weekend for additional updates on #Tribe20.
