FSU DT Marvin Wilson gets first team honors while Cam Akers comes away as an honorable mention in The Draft Network’s midseason all-american team.
There were some big shakeups in your FanPulse top 25 this week, plus an SEC quarterback is running away with the Heisman race.
While many fans expected that it would take a miracle to beat the Tigers in Death Valley, Clemson’s dominant performance still rattled fan confidence—dropping 11 percent from last week.
After a reviewing the film, Bud and Ingram sat down to discuss their takeaways from the Clemson game in the latest Nolecast.
4-star defensive back Jalen Harrell decommitted from the ’Noles on Tuesday. Harrell, the 18th ranked corner in the country according to 247Sports, is the first decommitment for FSU in the 2020 cycle:

In last weeks Noles News, I pointed out that FSU basketball coach Leonard Hamilton had found the fountain of youth some time ago. Well, the secret formula has been bottled and much like Mike’s secret stuff helped the Looney Toons defeated the Monstars, Leonard’s secret stuff helps him land 5-stars to combat the likes of Duke, UNC, and Virginia:

After requesting a trade and sitting out the past three weeks, Jalen Ramsey was finally dealt to the Los Angeles Rams. The Rams have struggled this year and unloaded Marcus Peters to the Ravens earlier in the day to make room for the all-pro:

Former FSU wide receiver Anquan Boldin has officially announced his retirement, and he did so as a Baltimore Raven. Boldin had longer stints on other teams, but it was in Baltimore where he won a Super Bowl, catching passes from Joe Flacco:

The 70-round draft has a large pool of players to choose from including a handful of former ’Noles that could be selected on day two.
And as one former players heads to Tampa, another departs as wide receiver Bobo Wilson was released by the Buccaneers after struggling mightily as a punt returner:
