Florida State football, recruiting news: 'Noles have big first day of fall camp

Logan Bowles-USA TODAY Sports


- Florida State football opened up fall practice on Tuesday, marking the official start to the 2016 campaign.

- Head coach Jimbo Fisher opened things up with a press conference, diving into his expectations in 2016 following a strong offseason. He also opened up about a social media ban, barring any player to be involved until the season is over.

- His comments on QB Deondre Francois seemed like a flashback on something he said about a former 'Nole QB. In that circumstance, things seemed to work out for Fisher and FSU.

- Fisher also provided an update on the injury status of key players, including Derwin James who will miss some time. You can see the full report by clicking the link.

- The 'Noles then took to the practice field, showing a glimpse of what the rotations may look like, and a first look at the newest additions from the latest recruiting cycle. You can get caught up on everything that went on here.

In Fox Sport's ranking of the top 20 college football coaches, FSU's Jimbo Fisher sits at No. 6 on the list, behind some coaches without a national championship to their name. Where do you think he should be ranked?


Four-star tackle Isaiah Wilson from Poly Prep (NY) announced he will take an official visit to Florida State on November 11. The 6'7 350 lb. 2017 recruit is ranked the 32nd overall prospect in the nation and top player in New York according to 247 composite rankings.

Another top recruit, five-star 2017 defensive back Jeffery Okudah from South Grand Prairie (Tx.) will reportedly make an official visit to Tallahassee for the 'Noles game against Clemson. The fifth overall player and top cornerback in the nation according to 247 sports already has offers from 34 schools including Alabama, Oklahoma, Ohio State and Texas.

Former Florida State baseball standout Luke Weaver will make his MLB debut on Saturday for the St. Louis Cardinals. In 77 IP at the Double-A level, Weaver had an ERA of 1.40 and struck out 88 hitters while only allowing 10 walks. He was called up to Triple-A recently and only made one start going six scoreless innings in the victory before getting called up. He will be the only active starting pitcher in the MLB to hail from Florida State.

The FSU men's 'hoops squad maxed out its 2016-2017 roster with the recent commitment of Patrick Savoy Jr. The guard came from a JUCO and chose FSU over UNLV, his father's alma mater.
