Noles land 4 commitments in the first week of July.

As the calendar rolled to the month of July, Florida State wasted no time getting the fireworks show going adding 4 commitments to the class of 2024 and they likely aren’t finished yet. 

The Noles have had some ups and downs in recruiting, but this staff has always remained steadfast in finding the right fit and have shown an ability to identify and develop talent. Recruiting tends to be a long game with many ebbs and flows throughout the process.

With FSU potentially on the verge of a big season there could be plenty of momentum to capitalize on in the fall. It is important to be patient and let the staff identify the players they feel will be able to sufficiently fill the needs on this roster through both high school recruiting and the transfer portal.

The most recent additions to Tribe 24 are part of a pivotal class for the future at FSU, and Tribe 24 is shaping up to be a very nice class with some talented players already in the fold. Let’s look at the newest Noles.

Daniel "DD" Holmes


Notes: Holmes has nice frame to work with at 6-foot-6 250-pounds, with continued development could be a definite impact player for FSU in the future. Had 37 total tackles (8 TFL) during his junior season. He chose FSU over South Carolina, Florida, Michigan and Maryland.

Ricky Knight iii


Notes: Two-way player who also ran track at the high school level. Knight was named to the 247Sports All-Combine Team at the National Combine in January. In 2022, he got snaps at both CB and WR at Benjamin HS who made the first round of Florida’s 1M playoffs. He had 33 tackles and 1 INT on defense while hauling in 4 passes for 92 yards on offense his junior season. Knight chose the Noles over in-state rival Miami as well as Illinois who had a top-10 defense in 2022.

Elijah Moore


Notes: Big receiver who can go up and get it. A no-nonsense type of guy who was down to Ohio State and FSU which speaks to his ability when you look at the recent run of talented receivers at Ohio State. FSU got on him very early and it paid off as the Noles beat out the Buckeyes who were a late favorite to land his commitment.


Rydarrius "Red" Morgan


Notes: Athletic player with lots of speed, hard-hitting and instinctual, not afraid to come down and hit people. Similar paying style to Jammie Robinson. In 2022, Morgan finished his junior season with 50 tackles, 5 TFL, 1 sack, 2 INTs, and 4 pass breakups. He helped Phenix City Central to a 10-3 record and the Alabama 7A state semifinals. He also played a lot of snaps at safety his sophomore year on a 13-1 team that lost in the Alabama 7A state championship game. Don’t ;et the star ranking fool you Morgan had a handful of impressive power 5 offers choosing the Noles over Alabama, Auburn and once again in-state rival Miami.

wrapping Up

With the recent commitments, Florida State’s 2024 class is now sitting at 13th nationally and 2nd in the ACC according to the 247 Sports composite rankings. The class has some quality talent with a Blue-Chip ratio currently sitting at 66.7% which is the highest for FSU since 2016. (Transfers not included)

The fireworks could continue for FSU with more commitment dates set for later this month. However, it’s already been quite an eventful month for FSU on the trail and we’re less than a week in! Thanks and Go Noles!
