New Florida State coach Willie Taggart faced his first big test in trying to salvage the Seminoles' 2018 recruiting class after a trying season in Tallahassee.

The Seminoles needed to reschedule a game against Louisiana-Monroe in order to squeak into bowl eligibility at 6–6. Jimbo Fisher jumped ship for Texas A&M before the ULM game and FSU managed to pry Taggart away from Oregon after a successful first season there.

FSU lost several recruits as rumors swirled that Fisher was looking for a way out of Tallahassee and several more once he officially departed.

Here are FSU’s commitments so far as National Signing Day arrives. All ratings are according to 247 Sports.
