TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — There’s a reason that recruiting is referred to as its own season. Much like the game of football, it’s a grind and a process. It has a beginning and an end and a whole lot of time, planning, team work, effort, execution and a little bit of luck mixed in between.
Wednesday will mark the culmination of that season when prospects are officially allowed to sign National Letters of Intent.
It was also mark the end of a hectic month of January for college football coaches everywhere.
In Florida State football coach Jimbo Fisher’s case, he will cap off a 2012 recruiting cycle that saw him finish with a flying bang. Unofficially, the Seminoles’ third-year coach flew over 8,200 miles the last two weeks while making final in-person visits to recruits throughout the country.
His travels took him as far west as Southern California and as far north as New Jersey. He frequented the recruiting hot beds of Texas, Alabama and Georgia and covered virtually ever corner of the talent-rich state of Florida.
For fun, we put together a general map of Fisher’s travels over the past few weeks. Take a look and see the areas he and his staff have visited leading up to the big day.
On Wednesday, make sure to keep your Internet browser locked on Seminoles.com’s 2012 Signing Day Central.
The page will feature a live video-only webcam from inside the coaches “war room,” highlights of every signee as their letters are certified, a live webcast from noon to 1 p.m. discussing the new ‘Noles, live coverage of Fisher’s 3 p.m. press conference and much more.
