Notes: ‘Noles in top 10 for 4-star ’22 CB, Sanders plans to be an Owl

FSU and head coach Mike Norvell continued to get good news on the recruiting front Monday. On Sunday they found out they are among the top seven schools involved in the recruitment of De’Jahn Warren, the top-rated JUCO cornerback in the country. Last night class of 2022 cornerback prospect Jaheim Singletary announced the Seminoles are among the top 10 schools currently involved in his recruitment.

Singletary, 6-1 and 170 pounds, is from Jacksonville (Fla.) Lee High School. The other schools currently in his top 10: Arizona State, Clemson, Georgia, Florida, LSU, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas and USC.


247Sports has Singletary rated as a four-star prospect, the third-best cornerback prospect in the country and the fourth-best overall prospect in Florida for the class of 2022. As a sophomore last season, Singletary made 47 tackles and he has totaled seven interceptions already in his young high school career.

Another 2022 prospect with a familiar name to FSU fans reported that he received an offer from the Seminoles yesterday. Trevor Etienne, the brother of Clemson running back Travis Etienne, tweeted that he was offered by the staff.

The Jennings (La.) High School product is also reported to have offers from Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Florida, Georgia and LSU. As a sophomore Etienne ran for over 2,300 yards and scored 31 touchdowns as he helped lead his team to 3-A state championship. The rising junior is rated as a three-star prospect by 247Sports, the 34th-best running back in the country and the 13th-best overall prospect in Louisiana for the class of 2022.

As expected 2021 quarterback prospect Shadeur Sanders, the son of former FSU standout Deion Sanders, announced his choice of schools Monday. Somewhat surprising though was the younger Sanders’ announcement that he was committing to FAU. Louisville was considered the favorite to land Sanders prior to the announcement. He also had offers from Alabama, Arizona State, UCF, Georgia Tech, Michigan and Oregon, among others. He will of course play for former FSU head coach Willie Taggart at FAU and compete for the starting QB with Taggart’s son Willie Jr., who signed with the Owls this past winter as a member of the 2020 recruiting class.

Back to Warren’s recruitment. While FSU is in his list of top seven schools, according to 247 Sports’ Brian Dohn, the highly coveted cornerback has already scheduled four of his five NCAA allowed official. Warren is currently scheduled to visit Penn State, Oklahoma, Tennessee and Georgia, which leaves Norvell and staff competing with Alabama and Maryland for the last official visit.
