Florida State added the nation’s #1 Defensive Tackle, Marvin Wilson, to cap off another stellar recruiting class. Finishing only 4 points behind last year’s total despite having 6 less blue-chip recruits.

When you land the nation’s top uncommitted recruit it’s usually considered the Best Get of the Day.

FSU is the only school land to both the Number one defensive end and the number one defensive tackle in the same cycle and they’ve done it twice.

Florida State did something that’s never been done in Rivals history.

Former Seminole Antonio Cromartie watched Tamorrion Terry’s highlights and had one thing to say:

With the signing of defensive tackle Marvin Wilson (No. 2), running back Cam Akers (No. 3) and defensive end Joshua Kaindoh (No. 5), it is the first time in Rivals recruiting history that a school has secured three of the top five prospects in a single signing class.

Here are some notes from the Annual Signing Day Party to introduce the class.

Florida State signed five recruits (Cam Akers, Marvin Wilson, Joshua Kaindoh, Stanford Samuels, & Khalan Laborn) that were rated 5-stars by at least one national recruiting service.

Jimbo Fisher is embracing FSU’s national brand:

Just talked with Jimbo Fisher on ESPNU. Of so many 2017 signees being from outside state of Florida (GA, MS, NC, SC, VA, MD, MA, TX): "We have a national brand...we're always gonna make our living in Florida, South Georgia...but wherever we can go try to get the best talent, our brand name allows us to do that."

For the 8th year in the row FSU has out-recruited its ACC compatriots.

When you can greyshirt a bluechip prospect it’s no surprise that you have the Number one class in the nation.

There’s always winners & losers; especially on national signing day.

Florida is going to give James Robinson a shot after all.

With Florida State finishing fourth and Clemson finishing tenth in ESPN’s final class rankings both programs once again find themselves in the top 10 in recruiting.


The Men’s Basketball broke out of their mini-slump w/ a dominating road victory over the Miami Hurricanes. They outscored the Hurricanes 44-23 in the second half with smothering defense.

Jonathan Isaac led the way with 15 points, 7 rebounds, and 3 steals.

The Seminoles next host Clemson at the Tuck at noon on Superbowl Sunday.

Dwayne Bacon is a finalist for the Julius Erving Award:

Tonight the Women’s Basketball team travel to Chestnut Hill to take on the Boston College Eagles at 7pm, you can catch that on the ACC Network Extra.
