Although he's been one of the most successful recruiters in college football history, Bobby Bowden's potential departure should not have a significant impact on Florida State's 2010 class.

Jimbo Fisher, the coach-in-waiting who will officially take over for Bowden, has played a prominent role in FSU's recruiting the past year or so. It's impossible to know if he or Bowden was the guy sealing the deal over that time, but with Fisher assuming all head-coaching duties, everybody now knows who's in charge. The staff can now move forward with coaches who know they are going to be in Tallahassee.
