NoleNation takes a look at five defensive end targets who have been identified early for the class of 2014.

Denzel Ware: Already committed to Florida State, Ware is the first target at the position that can be penciled in to the 2014 recruiting class. The Seminoles did well to get in the door early and secure a verbal from a prospect who is being heavily recruited from powerhouses such as Alabama, Clemson, Florida, Ohio State, Texas and Southern Cal. The Gators have begun to start pushing for Ware, but at this time he is still firm to Florida State.

Chad Thomas: If at all possible, Florida State would love to have an established pipeline into Booker T. Washington High School beginning with 2013 outside linebacker Matthew Thomas. Chad Thomas, a junior defensive end, is not too far behind. He's already received offers from the Seminoles, LSU, Miami, Mississippi and Texas A&M with plenty of other SEC schools looming. He figures to be a typical Florida State-Miami battle.
