The Florida State Seminoles have done everything to turn their fortunes around. Head coach Mike Norvell is the man in charge of Tallahassee’s rebuild, and the Noles’ football recruiting classes have gotten better with time.
FSU landed a solid offensive tackle in May 2021. The 325-pound (yes, you read that right) Aliou Bah, originally from Memphis, Tennessee, has spent his time in high school at Bradenton’s IMG Academy. Will his combination of size and high football IQ translate to college football?
Aliou Bah Commits to Florida State
As a four-star prospect, it’s only natural that Bah received interest from dozens of schools.
Programs from all across the country reached out, including Alabama, Arizona State, Arkansas, California, Eastern Kentucky, Florida, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Liberty, Maryland, Michigan, Michigan State, Mississippi State, Missouri, Morgan State, North Carolina, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Ole Miss, Penn State, Purdue, Southern Miss, TCU, Tennessee, Texas, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, USC, Vanderbilt and West Virginia. Phew, is that all?
Bah made his official visit to FSU in June 2021, but he has still not yet ruled out Georgia as a suitor despite being committed to the Noles. He was recruited by FSU offensive line coach Alex Atkins, and Seminoles fans have to hope that the relationship between the two is strong enough to keep the prospect in Tallahassee.
The big-bodied Bah reportedly chose Florida State over powerhouses like Texas, Texas A&M, Penn State, Oklahoma and rival Florida.
Aliou Bah Highlights
Right off the bat, one notices Bah’s size. He stands an imposing 6-foot-6 and 325 pounds, a size few high school players can go toe-to-toe against. The 247Sports Composite pegs him as a four-star prospect for good reason.
Florida State football, of course, has had its share of struggles in recent years. Despite that, the team is still capable of consistently attracting NFL-caliber prospects. Aliou Bah is no exception. So long as he remains with FSU, he has a great chance to help the Seminoles get out of their years-long rut.
