Incredible 😳 :Florida State DB target reveals strong interest in ‘Noles and Spring visit date

West Palm Beach (Fla.) Cardinal Newman standout Max Redmon worked out at the Under Armour Miami event over this past weekend, where Noles247’s Zach Blostein caught up with him for an update on his recruitment.

The 6-foot, 185-pound defensive back has been familiar with Florida State’s staff for as long as any program involved in his recruitment, as the Seminoles became Redmon’s first reported major offer last Summer. He has also visited Tallahassee multiple times since then.

Regarding the visits he plans to take over this Spring window, Redmon said he’s working to set up visits to programs like Penn State and Syracuse, but his lone scheduled unofficial visit is to Florida State on March 23, for FSU’s Legacy Weekend event.

He expanded on FSU as a program recruiting him and why they stand out within his process.

“I love the coaching staff, I love (Mike) Norvell,” Redmon said. “He’s a great guy. He assures me that he’s not trying to recruit me, he’s trying to do what’s best for me. That’s why I like him.”

Regarding his communication with the Seminoles’ staff, Redmon said he speaks with Norvell, defensive coordinator Adam Fuller, defensive back coach Pat Surtain, and other defensive coaches on staff. He talked about his thoughts of Surtain in specific.

“He’s a cool guy,” Redmon shared. “Calm, cool and collected, and that’s how you need to play DB – calm, cool and collected, and intense sometimes.”

Redmon says FSU is recruiting him to play Safety in Adam Fuller’s defense, but the staff has also noted his potential flexibility to play the Stud role as well, which is the field side linebacker/big nickel role that appears more like a three-linebacker set.

“They like my physicality, my size. They love how I can play in the backfield, come off the edge, play the nickel hybrid spot,” Redmon explained.

Redmon said he plans to make his college decision “around July.”

A question that’s relevant with every major prospect is one that revolves around NIL, as it carries varying degrees of importance to each and every prospect when making their college decision.

“It matters,” Redmon said. “It plays a big factor, but I just want to go where it feels like home, and I can play well.”

Expanding on the importance of NIL in his recruitment, Redmon said it’s a “top three” factor as he weighs his college options.

Redmon currently has a rating of “86” by, which places him as a three-star prospect.
