Seminoles busy week

It was a busy week for the Florida State Seminoles and coach Mike Norvell. Staying true to the "Keep CLIMBing" motto for the team, the Seminoles welcomed four four-star recruits for their 2025 recruiting class. Defensive linemen Myron Charles, Kevin Wynn, tight end Chase Loftin and corner Gregory "Zae" Thomas all committed to the Seminoles.

Defensive Additions

With Charles, Norvell and his staff add a 6-foot-4, 300-pound force along the line. Ranked as a consensus four-star recruit, the product of Port Charlotte High in Florida, he is also rated as the fourth-best defensive lineman in the class (On3). Charles chose the Seminoles over offers from Texas, Florida, Miami and USC. He shows a solid use of his hands to beat blockers, and shows solid footwork to drive players backward and collapse the pocket, and pressure the quarterback. He's got the versatility to play inside and outside and does well to chase the ball carrier down. He's got the instincts to know when to get his hands in passing lanes. With film full of Charles being a bulldozer and disruptor, he's poised to be a fan favorite for the Seminoles fans.

The other addition along the defensive line, is Wynn, out of Greensboro, Ga. Another consensus four-star recruit, On3 also ranks him as the 12th-best defensive lineman in his class. He chose the Seminoles over offers from Georgia, South Carolina, Texas and Alabama. At 6-foot-2 and 325 pounds, the Greene County High product is a mauler. He's got a quick first step and quickly uses his hands to engage and drive blockers back. He's got solid instincts to win at the line of scrimmage and sheds blocks easily to make the tackle. He's a high-motor player who plays with violent hands that you expect in players getting ready for the NFL. He also participates in track and field and finished 11th in the Georgia High School Association 1A meet as a 10th grader and also made the regionals.

The other addition on the defensive side of the ball, is Thomas, a 6-foot-2 and 190-pound corner from American Heritage High in Plantation, Fla. The four-star recruit chose the Seminoles over Clemson, Miami, LSU and Texas A&M. He is a blanket defender who consistently runs in step with opposing receivers. He has solid footwork and can play in both press/man coverage and zone schemes. Thomas plays physically and has a good football IQ playing disciplined and closes quickly to make tackles. He's best suited for playing the boundary and has the skills to erase his side of the field for opposing offenses. A speedy defender who was also a member of the track team and a member of the 4x400 team. He also ran 11.56 in the 100-meter. By heading to the Seminoles, Thomas reunites with former American Heritage coach Patrick Surtain Sr.

Also, as the Florida State Seminoles and the Seminole Tribe continue to forge their historic relationship, Thomas becomes the first member of the Seminole Tribe to play for the school.

Adding to the Seminole Offense

On offense, the Seminoles welcome Chase Loftin a 6-foot-6 and 213-pound tight end from Millard South High in Omaha, Neb. He's a versatile weapon for the offense of the Seminoles with his ability to line up as a traditional tight end as well as a receiver in the slot or along the boundary. Loftin chose the Seminoles over Nebraska, Kansas State, Texas A&M and Oklahoma. A matchup nightmare that has the body control to make 50-50 throws 80-20 in his favor. He also shows a disciplined approach in his route running with proper angles to catch the ball moving forward to maximize yardage gained. He's got solid instincts and can track the ball well on vertical routes. Loftin also has an older brother, Brayden, who plays tight end for the Kansas State Wildcats. After seeing how Jaheim Bell was used in Norvell's offense, Loftin should quickly make a name for himself.

2025 Seminole Recruiting Outlook

With the four recruits, Florida State has nine recruits in the 2025 class. With one five-star recruit and eight four-star recruits, the Seminoles cracked the top 10 in recruiting classes for 2025. With more quality recruits expected, it is clear that players across the country are recognizing the efforts that Norvell and his staff are putting in to re-establish Florida State as a top destination for quality players who want to improve their skills and make the NFL.

The future is bright in Tallahassee, and Seminoles fans everywhere should be excited for what the future holds. Stay tuned to for all your recruiting updates.
