1. What's up with Tony Steward?
This is a Clemson-FSU battle. Clemson is in desperate need of linebackers because its current crop lacks both quality and numbers. Plus, Steward's idol is Ernie Sims, who was coached by Clemson LB coach Kevin Steele. Despite this, we are confident in FSU's position with him. Steward is very respectful and has said good things about every school he visits. While we are mindful that Clemson can promise him an immediate starting job playing for Ernie Sims' former coach while FSU cannot (FSU is loaded with linebacker talent), we think FSU is in good position at the present time and that FSU's position will only improve from here. It will really depend on whether the kid prefers immediate playing time or the better program.
10.12.10 update: Tony Steward attended the Florida State-Miami game in South Florida on his own dime.
2. How many recruits does Florida State take in its 2011 recruiting class?
Bud Elliot believes that the numbers should reach 25-27. Don't expect Florida State to oversign weak talent, e.g. 2010 Miami recruiting class. Florida State does not need to reach 25, but it's fairly certain that Florida State won't deny high talent that wants to commit.
3. Any new news on Nick O'Leary?
Nothing but good news lately for Nick O'Leary. O'Leary recently attended the Florida State-Miami game. After the game, he didn't spend time in the locker room of the hometeam (Miami) but rather spent his time in the locker room of Florida State. Nick O'Leary's High School football coach recently said he believes that Florida State leads.
