Recruits watching NC State-Florida State

It is not the sexiest matchup on Florida State’s schedule. It is sandwiched by Clemson last week and Miami on Nov. 2. But the Seminoles have a litany of visitors coming to Tallahassee, Fla., for the NC State game, including the top commitment from a rival school.
Following the 51-14 prime-time drubbing of Clemson last weekend, the Seminoles’ arrow is pointing up with recruits. There will be four official visitors on campus. Here are 10 prospects who will be watching Florida State closely Saturday, whether from the seats in Doak Campbell or at home on the couch.
RB Dalvin Cook (Miami/Miami Central): He contends he is 100 percent committed to the Gators, but Cook is making the trip north to Tallahassee for an official visit this weekend. It is the second of three official visits scheduled to locations other than Gainesville, Fla. The Gators’ offense is sputtering. On the opposite side of the spectrum are the Seminoles, who have impressed the No. 4 running back nationally with a high-powered offense led by Heisman candidate Jameis Winston. A successful visit to Florida State and another flop by Florida and Cook’s commitment to the Gators could be in question.
