Breaking down FSU Football's recent scholarship offers (9/18)

Bye weeks are always an important time for recruiting, and this week is no different for the Florida State football team.

While the Seminoles' coaches can't host recruits for in-person visits due to the NCAA's COVID-19 protocols, they can certainly extend offers. And the 'Noles have offered a bunch of talented prospects in recent days.

Here's a complete breakdown of each of those offers, where the Seminoles stand with each prospect, and what to look for going forward.

Offers from 9/7 through 9/18

(Offered on 9/18)- DT coach Odell Haggins extended the offer

The Skinny on FSU offering DT DJ Aiken

FSU continues their pursuit of top defensive tackles to replace a strong group and offered Aiken on Friday. John Papuchis has ties with Aiken, but so does Odell Haggins who extended the offer. Main competition early on seems to be Auburn at this stage, as well as some with Georgia and Tennessee. Aiken says the offer from FSU is significant and wants to visit there as early as possible. He's been talking with FSU a good portion the last month and the interest has continued to climb.

(Offered on 9/18)- DB coach Marcus Woodson extended the offer

The Skinny on FSU offering DB Kylon Griffin

Most of the offers for Griffin come from the Midwest so this is a big deal with FSU being one of the first big ones from the South to extend an offer. This is also another kid that Woodson has good ties with already so this certainly puts FSU high on his list now with the Noles pulling the trigger per people close to Griffin.

(Offered on 9/17)- DB coach Marcus Woodson extended the offer

The Skinny on FSU offering DB Emory Floyd

There's some good vibes going on in this recruitment as Marcus Woodson already has a good bond with Floyd and the Noles are one of his childhood dream offers so it's quite significant the Noles jumped on board. Tennessee, Georgia are some other teams in the mix but this is a name to watch for sure in the 2022 class with the Noles. FSU has a solid shot here.

(Offered on 9/17)- HC Mike Norvell extended the offer

The Skinny on FSU offering TE/DE Brett Norfleet

Although his profile list him mostly as a defensive end I'm told FSU has taking quite a liking to him as a tight end so don't be surprised if that's the position they push with him for. I'm told he's also quite interested in FSU. Arkansas, Tennessee, Minnesota are some of the main teams FSU is going against. Have heard FSU is certainly a place he wants to see as soon as possible.

(Offered on 9/17) - TEs Coach Chris Thomsen extended offer

The Skinny on FSU offering TE Mac Markway

There's plenty of competition early here, but Chris Thomsen has developed a strong bond with Mac Markway. The talented TE says he has connections to Iowa and South Carolina, with family members playing at those two schools. But he added that he's going to make his own path and no team seems to stand out alone right now. Markway likes how the TE will be used in Mike Norvell's offense, so he's looking to see how the offense looks this fall. Iowa is probably the biggest threat early on.

(Offered on 9/17) - TEs Coach Chris Thomsen extended offer

The Skinny on FSU offering TE Jaxon Howard

Jaxon Howard is clearly one of the top TEs in the 2023 class, as he already holds 40 offers as a sophomore. He doesn't claim a favorite at this stage, but Minnesota, Iowa State, Michigan and Florida State are some of the schools recruiting him hardest. FSU has been on him had since Norvell was hired, and he is expected to be a dynamic receiving tight end on the college level.

(Offered on 9/17) - TE Coach Chris Thomsen extended offer

The Skinny on FSU offering TE Oscar Delp

While FSU is one of Oscar Delp's newest offers, he says the 'Noles and tight ends coach Chris Thomsen have actually been recruiting him for a long time. The 2022 prospect has 10 offers, and we get the impression this is an FSU-Georgia Tech battle early on. The relationship with Thomsen seems to be quite positive for the 'Noles, but Delp wants to see how the offense grows throughout this season. He's not in a hurry to decide.
