Noles news 2/23: Florida State Seminoles recruiting keeps rolling on

New, 30 comments

As The Open finishes up, Florida State commit D.J. Matthews was given high praise as the best player in position drills.

Recruiting:

- SB Nation head recruiting analyst and Tomahawk Nation's Bud Elliot broke down the offense displayed during The Open, noting that FSU commit D.J. Matthews was the best in position drills.

Florida State running back commit Zaquandre White predicts a record breaking season after missing half of his junior season due to suspension.

Three-star cornerback Ameer Speed has been in contact with FSU and players, hoping to get him and his 6'3 frame to come to Tallahassee.

Football:

- The NFL Combine officially gets started on Tuesday and former Florida State players Roberto Aguayo, Jalen Ramsey, Giorgio Newberry, Nile Lawrence-Stample, Lamarcus Brutus, and Terrance Smith are all going up to Indianapolis. Stay tuned to the homepage for a preview of the participating players.

- NFL Media analyst Daniel Jeremiah named Jalen Ramsey as one of his five candidates to break Chris Johnson's record for the 40-yard dash.

Ramsey is an elite talent on the football field, but he was also a track star at FSU. He won the ACC long-jump title in both indoor and outdoor track. He also placed seventh in the conference in the 100 meter, posting a time of 10.61. He might not run the top 40 time in Indy, but his overall workout will be outstanding. Bottom line: He's one of the most gifted players in this entire draft class. In my latest mock draft, I have him going to the San Diego Chargers with the third overall pick.
