FSU is one of three schools competing for a top-notch defensive back after the withdrawal

Florida State is always looking for elite talent for its defensive backfield, whether through high school recruitment or through the transfer portal, and that's no different with the Class of 2025, as the Seminoles are pursuing a long list of interesting talent that could make a splash in Tallahassee in the future.

On Sunday night, four-star defensive back Jaboree Antoine announced major news in his recruitment. He has decided to restart the process after decommitting to LSU in late January. Antoine revealed that he plans to focus on the Seminoles, Tigers and Miami Hurricanes moving forward.

This is a potentially notable move for the Seminoles. After all, Antoine's last official visit before reconsidering his in-state pledge to the Tigers was to Florida State earlier this month. It seems like the biggest competition right now is the Hurricanes, as crazy as it may be to say that about a prospect from Louisiana.

Antoine is still a relatively new name on the recruiting list after the Seminoles extended an offer to him earlier this year, but that hasn't stopped head coach Mike Norvell and defensive backs coach Patrick Surtain Sr. from making him a priority.

Other notable names in the secondary from the prep level include Xavier Thomas (four stars), Shamar Arnoux (four stars), Ben Hanks Jr. (four stars), Jordan Moore (four stars), Onis Konanbanny (four stars), Ladarian Clardy (four stars), Bryce Fitzgerald (four stars), Tony Williams (four stars), Max Redmon (three stars) and Jett White (three stars) (Maryland).

The 6'1″, 175-pound cornerback is ranked as the No. 61 overall prospect, No. 6 CB and No. 2 recruit in Louisiana for the 2025 class, according to 247Sports.

The Seminoles have five commitments to #Tribe25, which ranks 66th in the country.
