FSU football: 3 blue chip players from 2016 who need to shine in 2020

I have discussed at length how the highly ranked FSU football recruiting classes of the old regime have failed to produce since 2015.

If you recall we did the leg work and found that from 2015-17, 53 percent of the blue-chip players signed are no longer with the program or have not made any real contributions.

The 2016 class was considered the No. 3 overall class in the nation with 16 of 25 signees rated as four-star or better.

However, two signees Shavar Manuel and Keion Joyner didn’t qualify academically. They both were sign and place projects who never made the grades to get back to Division I football.
