2021 four-star offensive lineman Laurence Seymore, a Miami commit, will be visiting Tallahassee in January.
The Florida State football coaching staff (sans what appeared to only be head coach Mike Norvell and head coach emeritus Odell Haggins) came out heavy to support FSU hoops last night (spoiler alert for the next section: FSU beat Virginia.)
Speaking of coaches, here’s a good piece on new director of high school relations Carlos Locklyn.
Coach is doing a GREAT job! Followed him and within minutes he responded to me w a personalized message! Didn’t have to do that for a little HS coach in Ms but left an impression on me! https://t.co/wYaR4TBPHg— Dillon Mitchell (@D_Mitchell91) January 15, 2020
And speaking of Mike Norvell, somebody bring the man to Nic’s Toggery please:
If you want to get ahead on getting your hopes way, way, way up for no good reason, you can buy your spring game tickets now.

With his seven assists, Trent Forrest passes Charlie Ward and is now 8th all time at FSU. His four steals pushed him past James Collins and he's now 6th all time— Basketball School (@MichaelRogner) January 16, 2020
Washington State and Florida State’s eSports teams will be facing off tomorrow at 7:45 p.m., in what I think is a Rocket League match? (Rocket League is a game where you use cars to try to get a giant ball in a net, like a G-rated Twisted Metal combined with soccer.)
Tomorrow, our @WSUEsports team will be facing off against @EsportsatFSU as part of the Electronic Gaming Federation's (@officialEGF) Power Five Invitational!— WSU Global Campus (@WSUGlobal) January 15, 2020
