It is an age-old debate.
Is it better to recruit locally, spread out nationally for some of the biggest names, or should teams try to do both?
Since 2010, Jimbo Fisher's first season at Florida State, the Seminoles have signed 72 players to letters of intent. Not all of those have made it to campus, though, due to various forms of attrition such as academics.
Slowly but surely, Florida State is venturing into unfamiliar recruiting territory -- not just the insular state of Alabama, but points as far as Connecticut and North Dakota.
