In order for FSU to get back to the ranks of the elite; they have to win in-state in recruiting.

“I think you’ve got to recruit where you’re at. Chances of getting kids there and kids staying there are a lot higher when you get them from somewhere in the vicinity, where they live. Again, when you have a place like Florida State, a national brand, I think you can go out and recruit some of the best.” “You’ve got to do a great job of evaluating and making sure you get the right kind of kid to be able to leave far away from home, because I think it takes a special kid to leave somewhere far and go somewhere else and go to school. There are a lot of special kids out there that are able to do it and have a lot of success.”

Five up, Five down; FSU’s standing with 10 important recruits that could shift the ceiling of the class.

FSU has made the initial cut for three-star offensive tackle Joshua Jones out of Alabama:


Tre McKitty and Joshua Kaindoh traveled to Argentina as part of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes; the trip was organized by former FSU receiver Kez McCorvey.

Heartbreak for the FSU Softball as they drop game 1 to Oklahoma State in extras but this a familiar situation for the Seminoles; they had to win out last year as well.

Mike Martin’s illustrious career could end today; I don’t think that it will but it’s entirely possible.


We are officially less than 100 days until FSU Football is back; which means that it’s time for another Tomahawknation yearly countdown.

Starting us off at No. 100 in our top 100 players of all-time is the great Daryl Bush.
