Another edition of the Nolecast has arrived with Bud Elliott and Ingram Smith contemplating what life would be like inside the SEC & ACC Coastal. FSU’s current win total is 8.5; what would it be if they had Miami or Florida’s schedule. 9.5? Maybe 10? What do you think.

5-star DB commitment Akeem Dent is locked into FSU.

“I committed to Florida State about a year ago and I’ve never looked back,” Dent stated. “They were the right school for me because they always have a great defensive back on their team, and I think I can be that type of guy one day for them.”

”I committed to the previous staff and Jimbo Fisher, but I have a great relationship with the current staff and we keep in touch all the time by text,” he added. “I’m tight with all the coaches on the staff, and all of them are real good people. I think I’ve been to three games at Florida State, and love the atmosphere there.”
