The first full scrimmage of spring is in the books.

NCAA Basketball: ACC Conference Tournament-Florida State vs Virginia Tech Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports

The 27-7, fourth-seeded Seminoles will open up the NCAA tournament this Thursday vs. the 13th-seeded Catamounts at 2pm.

Here’s how the squad reacted to being a four-seed but should they had been a three-seed instead?

FSU handed NC State its first loss of the year on Sunday; narrowly avoiding the sweep:

Meghan King was an error away from a perfect game but an error away still means a no-hitter; congratulations to her:

Head Coach Willie Taggart spoke with the media to break down the scrimmage & the first two weeks of spring practice.

Recruiting:

The biggest recruiting news of the weekend (literally) was the commitment of 6’5 300 lb. offensive tackle Zane Herring to FSU.

He wasn’t the only offensive tackle on campus; there were at least three others this weekend.

Four-star running back Jaylan Knighton is being recruited by Donte Pimpleton and Willie Taggart.

“I don’t have a leader. I’m just confused right now.”

He speaks to Florida State, Clemson, Ohio State, Oregon and Utah nearly every day.

Florida State has been recruiting him hard dating back to last year. Running backs coach Donte’ Pimpleton has led the way for the ‘Noles. Knighton had good things to say about Pimpleton.

“He’s a cool, chill person,” Knighton said of Pimpleton. “He’s a hard worker so If i did go to Florida State I know I’ve got a good coach that’s going to push me everyday.”

Along with Pimpleton, head coach Willie Taggart tries to speak with the 5-foot-9, 185-pound back almost every day. Taggart’s message is more along the lines of how Knighton would fit into the program at FSU.

“He tells me how I’d fit in their program, different things they’d use me at. Coach Taggart really talks to me about how I fit into their program and how I’m a dynamic running back. Coach Taggart is a cool guy.”
