National recruiting analyst optimistic about FSU's chances with 4-star LB Blake Nichelson
Florida State linebacker target Blake Nichelson will announce his commitment on Tuesday evening.
In addition to the Seminoles, Nichelson has also been linked to Oregon. However, 247Sports director of recruiting Steve Wiltfong said he’s still expecting the California native to end up at Florida State.
“The intel is still pointing toward Tallahassee for Blake Nichelson,” Wiltfong said Tuesday afternoon. “And it would be another significant pickup for coach Norvell and company as they continue to button up that front 7.”
Nichelson is a major target for the Seminoles. He’s the No. 245 overall player and the No. 19 linebacker in the class of 2023, according to 247Sports Composite rankings.
He’s listed at 6-foot-3, 200 pounds. He attends Manteca High School in Manteca, California.
Florida State currently has 14 commitments in the class of 2023. The group ranks No. 22 nationally, according to 247Sports Composite rankings.
Nichelson will make his announcement at 9:30 p.m. ET on Tuesday night.
