Florida State football is in turmoil with uncertainty surrounding Jimbo Fisher. Last night, it hit the recruiting trail hard.

Over the course of two and a half hours, three players backed out of their Florida State commitments.

The Seminoles are down to 15 commits in a class ranked 14th overall and second in the ACC, good numbers for most schools, but a bit below what Fisher is accustomed to in Tallahassee.

First up was four-star cornerback Houston Griffith, who is now a favorite to head to Notre Dame, per 247's crystal ball. He is the No. 60 player in the country, and No. 9 corner.

About 90 minutes later, three-star safety Israel Mukuamu made his announcement. South Carolina is the other main contender for the No. 44-ranked safety, per 247's crystal ball.

Four-star center Verdis Brown, the No. 4 player at his position, was the final decommitment of the night. The Chicago native is favored to choose Illinois by the crystal ball voters.

If Fisher winds up staying in Tallahassee, he has some work to do to instill confidence in his recruits.
