Florida State football, recruiting news: Ro'Derrick Hoskins making impact early in season

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

- Brendan Sonnone of the Orlando Sentinel expounds upon Ro'Derrick Hoskins increased playing time, production, and impact in the early portion of this season.

Thought to be a rotational player and special-teams contributor at best entering the year, Hoskins leads FSU with 16 tackles and 3.5 tackles for loss. He made his first career start Friday at Boston College and finished with seven tackles for the second game in a row.

"I mean he has a lot of versatility to play on the ball, to play middle linebacker, to play [weak-side linebacker], he can play them all," coach Jimbo Fisher said. "His athleticism and he can cover. He is also shining on special teams. He is making play after play on special teams. I mean the light is coming on."

- Greg Hydes of Card Chronicle asks whether Louisville can turn their defense around. Through 3 games, the Cardinals are tied for 100th in the FBS in rush yards allowed (they were 10th in 2014) and have allowed over 50% of their opponents yards on the ground. The Cardinals have just a few weeks to get their defense figured out before their week 7 showdown with the Seminoles in Tallahassee.

- After Charles Kelly earned his first spiked baseball courtesy of Chip Baker this past Friday, Tom D'Angelo, FSU beat writer for the Palm Beach Post, looks back at how the spiked ball tradition began at Florida State.

- Sports Illustrated's Andy Staples takes a closer look at blood flow restriction training and the impact it could have on lowering recovery times from injuries.

Per his twitter, Tramonda Moore, a 2016 4* DT & FSU target, will be taking an official visit to Tallahassee the weekend of October 17th to see Florida State take on Louisville.
