The Florida State Seminoles captured their first national championship since 1999 at the end of last season, and that was the payoff for their dominance on the recruiting trail since head coach Jimbo Fisher took over for the legendary Bobby Bowden.
Just like any good head coach, though, Fisher has a great staff surrounding him to help in bringing these kids into Tallahassee to create another dynasty like Bowden had in the 90s. One of those assistants that’s prevalent in recruiting is tight ends coach Tim Brewster.
While Brewster really couldn’t really find his niche as a head coach in the Big Ten with Minnesota, he seems to have found his calling as a member of the Seminoles’ staff with Fisher, and he’s loving every minute of it. With every commitment that he and the team are able to secure, he takes right to his twitter account to let you know about it.
On the ground and rollin! Great day to be in East Tex! Got some Spears to plant! #Dallas2Dallas

Brewster truly does love what he’s helping build with Florida State, and this upcoming recruiting class for 2015 for the ‘Noles might end up making him just that much happier.
Currently, according to the 247 Sports rankings, FSU has 11 hard commits, including three 4-star recruits and one 5-star, the young man everyone considers to be the best defensive back recruit in the class, Derwin James.
There’s still a lot of time left between now and Signing Day in February, so how much better can this class get?
Well, Brewster actually thinks this could end up being the best recruiting class to ever come through Tallahassee.
“It’s extremely important we seize the momentum the national championship created.” Brewster told ESPN. “You’re the national champion. There’s one team that has that title, and that’s Florida State. We need to build on that. We need to seize the moment. We need to spread our brand, and that’s exactly what we’re doing. At the end of the day, this 2015 recruiting class is going to go down in history as one of the great classes at Florida State. We’re on an amazingly high caliber of kid in this recruiting class.”
Given the fact that there were a lot of young contributors on last year’s national championship team, the bar is set pretty high; but it seems that Brewster thrives on challenges, something that’s necessary when you’re trying to be dominant on the recruiting trail.
