Florida State football has been trending up in the 2024 recruiting class and the Seminoles got a huge crystal ball on Monday for Landen Thomas. 

If you haven’t noticed what Florida State football is doing on the recruiting trail, you might want to take notice because the Seminoles are back, at least in terms of being a recruiting powerhouse.

It might be too early to say Florida State football is going to be back to being what it was. The Noles have the sixth-ranked class right now in 2024 according to the 247 Sports team rankings and while the haul right now features just one top-100 commitment, that’s likely going to change, at least if the latest crystal ball projection from Steve Wiltfong proves to be true.

After a strong month of March, in which the Noles landed four-star quarterback Luke Kromenhoek, as well as a top QB in 2025, Florida State football is now being projected to land five-star tight end Landen Thomas.

As well as Michigan, Ohio State, Florida, and other programs are recruiting in 2024, nobody is doing a better job than the two-time defending national champs.

Yet, there have been some misses at the tight-end position specifically in recent months. Walker Lyons chose USC over Georgia on signing day and then recently, five-star 2023 tight end Duce Robinson made the same choice — USC over Georgia.

Bulldog fans probably weren’t that worried because of the commitment of five-star Landen Thomas in the 2024 class, but Florida State football has been trending up. Thomas has made multiple trips to Tallahassee and this past weekend was another.

Thomas committed to Georgia last summer but has visited Florida State football three times this year including twice this month. He was part of a big recruiting weekend that should generate more good news for the Seminoles, but for now, it looks like a flip is coming for FSU.

If it does happen, Florida State would be getting a 6-foot-4, 225-pound tight end ranked first at his position, fifth in the state of Georgia, and 24th overall in the 247 Sports composite rankings.

Florida State didn’t land a tight end in 2023 and doesn’t have any committed yet, so that’s another reason why Landen Thomas would be a huge get.
