As the spring rolls along, college football recruiting heats up. Plenty of major prospects make early commitments to end the recruiting process.

Big-time programs are filling up their classes earlier and earlier. Florida State has landed five recruits in the last 10 days, good enough to vault the Seminoles into the No. 1 spot in the team rankings.

The Seminoles jumped over Ole Miss, which fell from No. 1 to No. 3 in 247Sports' Composite Team Rankings. Oklahoma moved up a spot to the No. 2 spot.

Here are the full rankings:

Florida State picked up a pledge from four-star quarterback Sam Howell on April 9. On April 14, the 'Noles added a trio of four-stars: outside linebacker Jaleel McRae, offensive guard Dontae Lucas and wide receiver Maurice Goolsby.

A pledge on the spot from newly-offered three-star cornerback Renardo Green last night is the latest commitment for FSU. Here is a look at the Florida State class as it stands.

These recruiting rankings will change a lot between now and Signing Day 2019.

However, FSU certainly looks like they will remain at or near the top under Willie Taggart.
