Football:

Chip Patterson of CBS Sports made a Mount Rushmore monument based on historic Florida State football figures. He includes both new and old with Jameis Winston, Bobby Bowden, Deion Sanders and Charlie Ward on the mountain. What four people would you choose to put on a Florida State football Mount Rushmore?

SB Nation's Bill Connelly continued his Power Five previews with UNC, an upcoming opponent for Florida State. After finally living up to its potential, they will have to rely on a new quarterback who has done an exceptional job in the small amount of snaps he played in. He will also need to get the job done with a new hole on the offensive line, created by the departure of All-American Landon Turner.

In ESPN's list of the most important players on each team in the ACC, RB Dalvin Cook was the honorary member for FSU.

Cook's accomplishments in his sophomore season make for quite a list: No. 6 in the nation with 1,691 rush yards; tied for No. 8 with 19 rush TDs; tops in the Power 5 with 7.38 yards per carry (minimum 100 rushes); a unanimous All-ACC pick by the media. In all, Cook was the only player to rank top 10 in the nation in yards per carry, rush yards per game, all-purpose yards, total rush yards, rush touchdowns and scoring. Even more amazing? FSU coach Jimbo Fisher says Cook looks better this offseason than he ever has.

Recruiting:

Click here to catch up on everything you need to know from Thursday of Jimbo Fisher Football Camp, which included multiple commitments to FSU.

During the camp, the 'Noles extended an offer to nearby 2018 Chiles (Fl.) linebacker Amari Gainer. Bud Elliott who was in attendance at the camp called Gainer the best linebacker at camp thus far. David Visser, also in attendance, added, "His instincts are good. A lot of players wait until the ball is released to break on it in zone, but he gets at his responsibility when the QBs non-throwing hand comes off the ball."

The 'Noles also extended an offer to 2018 offensive lineman Christian Meadows, his first offer. The 6'3 330 lb. recruit from Montezuma, Geogia, although without an offer from anywhere else, is a talented played.

Was new five-star legacy commit Stanford Samuels III faster than his dad, former Florida State player, when he was in high school? Here's a sneak peak at what the elder Samuels had to say. Look out on the Tomahawk Nation home page for the full video later today.
