  • SB Nation’s Bill Connelly wrapped up his preview of the Atlantic Coast Conference by unveiling his ACC preseason power rankings for the 2016 season. After the obvious top two teams on the list, Connelly places Louisville as the team most likely to dethrone Clemson and FSU. That being said, the more intriguing question is which ACC team will emerge as the fourth-best team in the conference with a number of contenders vying for one spot.

Trey Marshall, DB, Florida State

After starting the first six games of the season, a biceps injury ended Marshall's sophomore campaign early. He returned to work during spring practice, and he promises to be a key figure in a secondary that's already among the best in the ACC -- and maybe the country.

  • Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher and former Seminole QB Jameis Winston received recognition from Florida Governor Rick Scott on Wednesday for taking time out of their busy schedules to visit victims of the Orlando Shooting in the hospital. On his visit to the victims, Fisher called it humbling, as reported by Brendan Sonnone of the Orlando Sentinel.

Recruiting

  • Highly-touted 2017 long snapper Thomas Fletcher, who has offers from Alabama, Texas A&M, and Oregon in addition to his FSU offer, took to Twitter to share that he would be making his commitment decision in the near future.

NFL

  • Former Seminole running back Devonta Freeman is among Michael Robinson’s three most underrated RBs entering the 2016 season after a breakout 2015 campaign.

Other Sports

  • FSU’s Stefan Brits received a spectacular honor on Wednesday as he was named the ACC Scholar-Athlete of the Year for Men’s Outdoor Track and Field.
  • The NBA Draft is slated for Thursday night and one former Seminole, Malik Beasley, is projected by many to be a first-round pick in this year’s draft. If you are interested in watching the draft, it will air on ESPN beginning at 7:30 PM EST and for Florida State coverage of the draft, keep it tuned to Tomahawk Nation.
  • Speaking of Beasley, he seems to be shooting up the draft boards ahead of tonight's draft.
