Recruiting:

Three-star tight end Sage Ennis of Tallahassee Lincoln is set to make a commitment decision soon, and the Seminoles are thought to be the favorite.

Football:

Here’s an NFL Draft scouting report on running back Cam Akers, looking at his viability as a prospect in the 2020 draft.

Jimbo Fisher got asked about the state he left FSU in and said that the school is “in great shape.”

If you happen to disagree, and also happen to think that a lot of that blame lies with Mr. John James, then this is the column for you.

No. 94 in our countdown of the top 100 players in FSU history (how about that No. 96 entry though, right? Beautifully written, by, you know, whoever put it together.) was jack-of-all trades lineman Cam Erving.

Unfortunate news for former Florida State receiver George Campbell, who was set to transfer to Penn State but didn’t get admitted to a graduate program. Campbell is still eligible to transfer and play immediately in 2019.

Basketball:

Two of FSU’s opponents will be getting players back instead of losing them to the draft:

Baseball:

FSU signee Parker Messick had a huge night in the semifinals of the FHSAA 8A playoffs for Plant City, hitting a nearly 400-foot home run and striking out 16 batters in a 8-0 shutout of MacArthur High.

Messick and Plant City will play Strawberry Gardens in the championship game at 7:30 p.m. tonight.

Other Sports:

Sophomore infielder Sydney Sherrill and redshirt senior pitcher Meghan King were named NFCA All-Americans on Wednesday, with Sherrill making first team and King making second.

Florida State women’s track and field will head into the NCAA Championships next week as the No. 3 program in the country, its highest ranking since 2008.
