Florida State lands in top-10 list for 4-star LB, major in-state recruit for 2025
Florida State is looking at a strong 2023 performance on the field while continuing work on the recruiting trail for the future. One player in the mix for the class of 2025 released an updated top programs list, and the Seminoles are still in the hunt.
The player is Tarvos “TJ” Alford, an in-state linebacker who unveiled his top 10 list on Thursday. Florida State landed in the list alongside fellow in-state rivals in Miami and Florida. UCF — another in-state program — was included along with Penn State, Georgia, Ohio State, Rutgers, Tennessee and Louisville.
