Recruiting

Florida State paid its final visit to linebacker commit Emmett Rice Tuesday night.

Bud Elliott made a cameo appearance on SB Nation's Podcast Ain't Played Nobody to discuss all kinds of college football topics including whether or not there should be a quota on the number of five-star recruits.

Jeremy Crabtree, recruiting analyst for ESPN, provides a fascinating piece on the impact that social media has had on the recruiting game.

David Teel of the Daily Press sat down with Michael Strickland, who schedules the ACC conference games each year, to learn the process and all the different aspects that are taken into account.

ESPN's Jared Shanker points out how the loaded slate of October games will make or break the seasons of all ACC teams.

More from Shanker as one Florida State signal caller is on his list of first-year starting quarterbacks with the chance of winning a national championship in 2016.

Florida State's Deondre Francois

The Seminoles return starter Sean Maguire, but he'll miss the spring with a fractured ankle. Francois is a highly touted redshirt freshman who could take advantage of the extra reps. Could he emerge from a three-way competition with J.J. Cosentino and early enrollee Malik Henry this spring and win the job from Maguire in the summer?

Another day, another promising draft projection for former Seminole Jalen Ramsey, who is projected 4th in Dan Kader's most recent mock draft for SB Nation.

4. Dallas Cowboys: Jalen Ramsey, CB/S,  Florida State

There are so many directions Dallas could go with this pick. The choice, though, should be the player who can make the biggest impact on the team in 2016. That's not a quarterback. It's probably not a second wide receiver, or even a player on the defensive line. Based on yards allowed, Dallas had the fifth-best pass defense in the nation. But had the second-fewest interceptions in the league. Ramsey may not be known as a ball hawk, but Morris Claiborne is a free agent, Brandon Carr has a year left on his deal and Byron Jones might be better at safety.
