Recruiting:

Florida State has added another talented defensive line recruit to its 2019 recruiting class in the form of Derrick Mclendon.

He committed to FSU during Rivals’ 5-star challenge; a challenge which featured a slew of other FSU commitments such as four-star QB Sam Howell, four-star guard Dontae Lucas, & five-star corner-back Akeem Dent. All of whom are impressing at the event.

There’s a new target on FSU’s running board whom is relatively unknown but won’t stay that way for long.

What’s next for FSU on the defensive line in #Tribe19? Notice that Tomahawknation is the only site that lists Mike Morris as an offensive tackle.

Barton Simmons thinks Sam Howell has a shot at leaving The Opening as the top-ranked quarterback in the country.

Speaking of The Opening; it could be a big weekend for FSU commits to prove themselves among national competition.

Just call Dontae Lucas ‘The Pope’ because he’s baptizing folks:

Football:

WestcoastNoles? FSU is exploring scheduling more games against Pac-12 powerhouses like USC, UCLA, and possibly Stanford.
