Florida State football, recruiting news: FSU lands top bluechip recruit out of North Carolina

Hamsah Nasirildeen commits to Florida State.


Florida State received a huge boost to #Tribe17 late Sunday Evening as Hamsah Nasirildeen flipped from the Gamecocks to the Seminoles. Nasirildeen is the 9th top 150 recruit to be a member of FSU’s 5th ranked recruiting class.

Every update you can think of from this weekend’s visit regarding FSU commits & targets.


Derwin James & Tarvarus Mcfadden headline FSU’s top returning players for 2017:

6. Tarvarus McFadden, CB, Florida State: He tied for the national lead in 2016 with eight interceptions. Odds are quarterbacks won’t give him an opportunity to match that total next season.

FSU Seniors Sean Maguire & Levonte Whitfield competed in the Collegiate Bowl & the Shrine Bowl, respectively.

Speaking of seniors Freddie Stevenson is headed to the Senior Bowl:

LSU won’t have live tigers at their games anymore, poor Mike.

FSU fans know what life is like after a generational quarterback leaves the program how will Clemson respond?


After averaging 1.1 points per possession in the first half vs the best defense in the country; FSU held on for a five point victory over Louisville this past Saturday.

It’s the seventeenth straight home victory for the Seminoles.

Florida State’s resume is starting to look top seed worthy:

Here's the point: FSU is positioned to win an outright league title -- not to mention earn a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament. And, yes, the latter is very much on the table because Florida State will enter Wednesday's game at Georgia Tech with A) a 6-1 record against top-25 RPI teams, B) a 9-1 record against top-50 RPI teams, C) zero losses to schools ranked outside of the top 70 of the RPI, and D) zero home losses.

That's a strong resume.

Put a blue-blood's name on FSU’s current resume & you’re looking at a team that’s top 5 in the polls:

The Women’s Basketball team destroyed another ranked team this past weekend. They’ve put themselves in contention for a Number 1 seed.


Devonta Freeman is headed to the Superbowl; following the Falcons’ thrashing of the Packers. As a bitter Packer fan I’m hoping Devonta gets that ring.

Who’s wearing a Super Bowl ring the next time they visit Tallahassee, Devonta Freeman or Tre Jackson?
