It was a big weekend for FSU recruiting; all 13 commitments were on campus and multiple four-star and three-star targets took their official visits as well.

Defensive end decommitment Morven Joseph was back on campus as well; the now four-star defensive-end is giving FSU a second chance.

Perhaps the biggest news of the weekend (recruiting-wise) was this:

Demorie Tate is FSU’s highest rated commitment and a potential five-star talent; locking him down had to be close to priority number on thew new staff’s objective list.

Four-star quarterback and louisville commitment Chubba Purdy wrapped up his official visit to FSU:

A flip this late for a QB of his caliber would send quite the message.


And now the biggest news of the weekend program wise; Cam Akers has made it official. His FSU career is over.

No, thank you Cam.

Ron Dugans will be officially retained as wide receiver coach.

FSU will now face Arizona State without its best two players, Cam Akers and Marvin Wilson:

He’s the game’s greatest corner-back; no surprise that this was announced:

Jameis Winston did something this weekend that no other NFL QB has ever done in the regular season:
