Alabama may have finished No. 1 in the recruiting rankings, but rounding out the top five was Florida State.

As pointed out by Warchant, the Seminoles snagged three players in the top five — the first time that’s been done in Rivals recruiting history:

With two defenders, five-star defensive end Josh Kaindoh and five-star defensive tackle Marvin Wilson, along with five-star running back Cam Akers, the ‘Noles appear primed for another run at the top.

Alabama is slated to face off against Florida State in the 2017 season-opener in Atlanta, which should be one of the best opening games in recent memory.
