The NCAA can call it a dead period if it wants but the machine that is college football recruiting is continuing to chug right along. At least five prospects from the classes of 2022 and 2023 announced via social media that they have received scholarship offers from Mike Norvell and his staff over the last 36 hours.
Here is a quick look at the five prospects reporting offers from Florida State:
2022 DE prospect Wilfredo Aybar announced on Twitter on Tuesday that he has received an offer from the Seminoles. Aybar is considered a four-star prospect by 247Sports, which has him ranked as the top prospect from Connecticut. They also rank Aybar as the 3rd-best WDE prospect in the country and the 27th-best overall prospect for the class of 2022. The rising junior attends Chesire (CT) Academy and his list of offers is reported to include Florida, Miami, Michigan, Nebraska, Ohio State, Penn State and Tennessee.
Amarion Brown is another 2022 prospect that has reported an offer from FSU. The 6-foot-3 and 180-pound rising junior attends Martin Country HS in Stuart, Fla. He is rated as a three-star prospect by 247Sports, which also have him ranked as the 46th-best WR prospect in the country and the 43-best overall prospect in Florida. Brown’s list of offers is reported to include Arkansas, South Carolina, Penn State and Florida.
Another 2022 prospect to claim an offer from FSU is OT Tyler Gibson from Johns Creek HS in Alpharetta, Ga. The 6-5 and 270-pound rising junior is reported to also have offers from Oregon, Michigan State, LSU, Boston College and Arkansas. Gibson is currently unranked by 247Sports.
Two more prospects from 2023 also posted to social media that they had received offers from the Seminoles.

Baxter is 6-0 and 190-pounds and is being recruited as an “athlete.” Jones is 6-3 and 210 pounds and is being recruited as a linebacker or defensive end.
