Two five-star recruits on way to Florida State


Tampa-area recruits George Campbell (WR/S), Byron Cowart (DE), and Ryan Davis (WR) are on their way to Tallahassee -- not Gainesville (where UF's Friday Night Lights is taking place) for a visit. It will be interesting to see what sort of traction can get with Cowart and Campbell, and if they end up stopping by Gainesville on the way back home. Florida State has struggled to recruit the Tampa area despite its overall success in recent years. Ryan is the little brother of former FSU player Chris Davis.

Rick Trickett on cross-training players


And the level of their instruction matches their intelligence, especially if they have a coach like Trickett. He makes players flip positions for a few days to rejuvenate them. "Those tackles do not like going back in to guard, I can promise you that," Trickett says. "They think they have their stuff down. They go inside and they say, ‘Stuff happens a lot faster.’ Well, no s—. Try playing center. They like it outside. Of course they do. Any moron can play tackle. It’s all man on man out there. How complicated is that?"

Rick Trickett on why he cross-trains his offensive linemen. It helps with their understanding.

Oklahoma State DC Glenn Spencer on Jameis Winston


Spencer already is stressed about dealing with Winston. "That's no fun when you look at a ton of film all summer and you're not getting any answers," Spencer said Wednesday. Spencer said Winston has Andrew Luck's size, Robert Griffin III's ability to escape the rush and Colt McCoy's leadership skills. "He has all the talent in the world," Spencer said. "He's so big. He doesn't get shook. He can take a hit in the backfield. He's not running around trying to avoid. He doesn't make bad decisions."

Huge commitment for FSU


D.J. Jones, one of the most important targets for the Florida State Seminoles, has committed to Florida State after his official visit this weekend.

I'm covering ACC Media Days, and will have more on this later in the week.
