Sure, it's easy to recruit if you're Brian Kelly and have the Notre Dame tradition behind you. Or if you're Lane Kiffin and you've got USC's glory days to hype.
Or even if you're Les Miles and Nick Saban and have access to all those big bodies who don't want to get too far away from their momma's cooking. Not to mention that they play in the SEC, which happens to be on a pretty good run these days.
But Jimbo Fisher and the Florida State Seminoles don't have those advantages. In fact, FSU is a non-SEC school (ACC) trying to recruit in the heart of the SEC while that conference is at its peak.
But yet again, Fisher has landed a great recruiting class. According to Rivals.com, the Seminoles have the No. 6 ranked recruiting class in the country this year, outdistancing several prominent SEC programs.
Fisher stole four hot recruits, including No. 1 QB prospect Jameis Winston, from right under Alabama's nose. In all, FSU landed three 5-star, 10 4-star, and five 3-star recruits.
In your face, SEC.
