Two recruiting services have FSU's class at No. 1

Jimbo Fisher should just go ahead and play the Lottery, because the Florida State head coach just can't lose these days.

With four-star lineman Josue Matias from New Jersey recently switching his verbal commitment from in-state favorite Rutgers to Florida State, the Seminoles are now atop the Class of 2011 rankings according to two recruiting services — Scout.com and ESPN.com. FSU currently sits at No. 3 on Rivals.com's rankings.

As we head into National Signing Day on Wednesday, Matias’ selection gives the Seminoles 25 verbal commitments with room for a few more in Jimbo Fisher's second full season as head coach.

The future of FSU in the post-Bobby Bowden era certainly looks bright, as Fisher has the Seminoles trending in the right direction as in-state rivals Florida and Miami undergo their transitions under new staffs.

Be sure to check back with the NFP, as I'll have my Top 25 classes post-National Signing Day later in the week.
