- ESPN's Jared Shanker made a bit of a surprising choice when determining who would be the best basketball player on the FSU football team.

2. Florida State Seminoles

Mavin Saunders, Soph., TE: Safety Derwin James has some high-flying material that would qualify him for the dunk contest at NBA All-Star Weekend, but Saunders is the Seminoles' best basketball player. UConn basketball was the 6-foot-5, 253-pound tight end's first scholarship offer, which came his freshman year. Athletic enough to play above the rim, Saunders complements his natural ability with a dangerous jumper from the field. -- Jared Shanker

One Seminole early enrollee was named to Ken Bradley of The Sporting News' list of 15 newcomers who could make an impact this spring.

FSU head coach Jimbo Fisher held his first press conference of spring practice on Wednesday.

Florida State held its first football practice of the spring on Wednesday. Afterwards, Jimbo Fisher was far from complimentary of his team's effort.

Recruiting

2017 three-star quarterback Jacob Free took a visit to Tallahassee on Wednesday for the first practice of spring. He holds 10 total FBS offers but is waiting for his offer from FSU.
