Florida State could push to the finish with a top 10 class.

OK, don't let Paul Johnson fool you, recruiting is important despite how Georgia Tech's coach downplays the trickle of 5- and 4-stars going his way. Leon O'Neal Jr., Cy Springs High School: Website 247 Sports placed O'Neal as a top-10 Texas recruit.
