The ’Noles have been hot on the recruiting trail as of late and it looks like it is all hands on deck in Georgia:
The no. 1 safety in the class of 2021 decommitted from the Hurricanes:
FSU’s newest commit, two-sport athlete Malachi Wideman, described both Willie Taggart and Leonard Hamilton’s excitement when he informed them he was headed to Tallahassee.
FSU checks in as the 9th most desirable job in college football according to Athlon Sports.
An early look at the 2020 Draft has a pair of ’Noles as top-100 prospects.
Matt Miller of Bleacher Report adds another ’Nole to his big board. Which players on the current roster do you think hear their names called next year?
FSU Soccer’s national championship has the Seminoles sitting in third place in the Capital One Women’s Cup.
Over the eight Capital One Cup seasons, $3.2M has been donated to the scholarship funds of winning schools—half to men’s and half to women’s programs.
Demarcus Christmas, Seattle’s 6th round pick, is already getting after it at rookie mini-camp.
Late round picks face an uphill battle to make the roster but moving this quick as a 300-pounder certainly helps.
There are plenty of edits of NFL Rookies following the Draft, but there is something to be said about a hand-painted rendition of FSU edge Brian Burns as a Panther. Burns himself clearly likes it:
There are a few former Seminoles who weren’t drafted that are accepting invites to rookie mini-camps, including a track and field star that didn’t play a down for FSU football:
The Giants signed undrafted free agent G Austin Droogsma after he attended rookie camp this weekend on a tryout. ... That was his first time playing football since high school, six years ago. The 6-4, 345-pounder was a shotput champion and discus thrower at Florida State.— Ralph Vacchiano (@RVacchianoSNY) May 6, 2019
Others accepting invites are C Alec Eberle and former FSU/Kansas TE Mavin Saunders, who will both head to Tampa for their shot at making an NFL training camp:
Bucs rookie minicamp starts Friday, and I can confirm more tryout players -- there will be 26 total. Among the new names: Former FSU and Kansas tight end Mavin Saunders, who was at Browns minicamp this weekend. Good size at 6-5, 256, just 20 catches in college career.— Greg Auman (@gregauman) May 7, 2019
Another FSU alum coming to Bucs rookie minicamp as a tryout player: center Alec Eberle, who started 44 straight games at center.— Greg Auman (@gregauman) May 7, 2019
