Florida State football, recruiting news: Josh Sweat is ready to take the next step

FSU makes the cut for Top 100 Georgia Wide Receiver.

NCAA Football: Mississippi at Florida State Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports


Josh Sweat is looking to pounce on his terrific finish to his sophomore season and the further removed he gets from that knee injury the better he looks. Sweat checks in at No. 43 on SportsIllustrated’s top 100 players list.

Florida State’s defensive line is so loaded that it’s difficult to project excellence from any one player without worrying about whether someone else will outshine him with a breakout season. That shouldn’t be an issue with Sweat, though. The Seminoles will be counting on him to get after the quarterback to make up for the production void created by first-team All-ACC end DeMarcus Walker’s departure this off-season. Sweat wreaked havoc in opponents’ backfields down the stretch of 2016, notching 18 tackles and 4.5 sacks over Florida State’s final three games. Now he just needs to prove he can do it over an entire campaign.

A year in review; a good not great but good year for FSU athletics.

Is incoming center signee, Brady Scott, FSU’s next two-sport star?

Out of every FSU player that has ever donned a jersey number from 80 to 89; who was the best?

Remember when the Big 12 was going to expand by adding FSU and Clemson?

As usual with new NCAA ideas (this time in regards to the grad transfer rule) there are ways in which it can help the athlete and hurt the athlete at the same time.

No surprise here but FSU knows how to finish off an opponent in the four quarter:

Coffee is for closers... Best record, over last 5 years, when tied or ahead at the start of the fourth quarter: 1....

FSU made the cut for top 100 WR, Kearis Jackson, and not many Seminole fans are aware of his recruitment to FSU, maybe they should be:

Maybe the best WR in the country for the 2019 class; Devonta Lee is planning multiple trips to FSU (VIP).


FSU all-time great RB, Dalvin Cook, will be coaching at this year’s Nike Opening in Oregon.

Former Seminole, Karlos Williams, road’s back to the NFL just got a lot longer with this suspension:
