There’s just 17 days left until National Signing Day and Florida State still has a number of slots to fill.

The Seminoles signed just seven prospects during the early signing period after the coaching change left the recruiting class in dire straits.

New FSU coach Willie Taggart has done a good job of rebounding on the recruiting trail, and has the Seminoles positioned for a great close to the class.

Here is how the recruiting board stands out at each position.


Committed: None

Needs: 1

Targets: Four-star James Foster

FSU needs a quarterback in this cycle with just four remaining on the roster. Foster is the only target for the Seminoles at this point, and Taggart — along with new quarterbacks coach Walt Bell — have done a good job of positioning the Seminoles in the race. FSU will get the final official visit for Foster on Feb. 2. FSU is battling LSU and Alabama for his services.

Running Back

Committed: None

Needs: 1

Targets: Four-star Jashaun Corbin, Three-star Anthony Grant

FSU has a lot of talent in its running back room currently, and after signing three of the top running backs in the country a year ago — Cam Akers, Khalan Laborn, and Zaquandre White, along with Deonte Sheffield — the Seminoles aren’t in dire need of a running back in this class and can pick its targets carefully. Corbin is a great fit for the Willie Taggart offense as he’s just as dangerous in the passing game as the running game. Corbin — who was once committed to FSU — is considering TCU as well. Grant is a new offer that was extended. He’s currently committed to Tennessee.
