As the national signing day approaches, the last crop of the top talented recruits in the country are scrambling to make visits and narrowing down their decisions as to where they will be playing in the fall. There are plenty of young men still deciding on where they will be playing next season, but there are also some young men who are committed to a school but are still entertaining other options.
For Florida State, there are a handful of key recruits that they must have. Obviously, priority No. 1 is to hang on to the guys that are already committed—most notably Mario Edwards Jr., Jameis Winston, Dante Fowler Jr., Chris Casher and P.J. Williams.
Edwards Jr. gets the most publicity because according to ESPN, he's the No. 1 prospect in the country and with a last-minute visit to LSU, Florida State is on pins and needles wondering if his long-time commitment, which he made very public last March, is beginning to waver.
Winston also has the opportunity to play professional baseball when he gets drafted later this spring. Both recruits are the kind of players that could make or break a recruiting class. Right now Florida State has the third-ranked class according to ESPN. Without Edwards Jr. and Winston, that class will surely take a large drop.
There are still other recruits that are on Florida State's radar and they are must-have recruits to cement this class as one of the best in the country.
Since Edwards Jr. and Winston are already committed, they won't be included in this list.
