Rebuilding through recruiting
College football teams at different stages in rebuilding through recruiting
Mike Norvell and his staff at Florida State fell into that category, where they were trying to build new relationships in the state and to reset the program's culture. Not only was it difficult trying to recruit the right type of player, but the coaches also were limited in assessing the roster they already had on campus.
Not being able to completely evaluate the team's needs made it that much more difficult for coaches in Norvell's situation to recruit players in high school and the transfer portal.
