Five-star defensive end Kayvon Thibodeaux is the nation’s top recruit and Florida State is firmly in his top 5. Sources believe that it’s Alabama and FSU out front for the talented edge rusher.

The Hyattsville (Md.) DeMatha standout made a Florida State official visit recently and he speaks to the Seminoles, Alabama, Florida and Penn State regularly, and a decision is coming. ”It will be a couple of weeks, hopefully,” the 6-foot 1/2, 208-pound Cross after working out at The Opening Finals at The Star. “I don’t have a set date, but it should be soon.”

Cross made official visits to each of the four schools, and the Florida State trip was one he waited on for a while. ”I liked the visit, it was a good area,” he said. “I liked the whole atmosphere, the coaches are very warm, the players were very accepting. I enjoyed it.” Not only did Cross bond well with the people in the program, but he also liked what he saw on the campus and from an academic standpoint.


Just a few tidbits about 2018 ACC season football; a conference right now that looks to field one elite team and a bunch of pretty good ones.

Bleacher Report says that Florida State has the third best backfield in the country.

Led by Brian Burns FSU’s strength on defense this fall will be in the trenches. Speaking of players in the trenches it’s a big year for Janarius Robinson.
