UGA, 'Bama

Despite SEC schools still pushing, we are told there's a good amount of confidence from FSU that Cooper sticks.

Davis visited FSU in the summer, and the current vibe is that the 'Noles hold the edge.

NC St, Mich, VT

McNeil is a name we hear more and more with FSU. Plans to visit FSU officially this year and attended the FSU-Bama game.

Other FSU DT targets to watch

Keondre Coburn, Jeffery Johnson

We certainly feel that both Coburn and Johnson are heavy targets for the Seminoles down the line, but neither have visited or attended a game yet for Florida State. Nevertheless, Coburn has stated he will take an official visit to FSU later this year. He's close with FSU freshman DT Marvin Wilson, so his visit could be something to watch for the 'Noles, despite the fact he's currently committed to Texas.

Then with Johnson, FSU is still evaluating him throughout the season, but the 'Noles have been very active in his recruitment. He plans to take an official visit to FSU. Ole Miss and FSU were the early favorites, but now Alabama is pushing, so the Tide are certainly a major threat there as well. Johnson hasn't taken a lot of visits so far.
