2021 Florida State offensive line commit Bryson Estes is putting in work in the weight room:
Florida State got a commitment on Wednesday from 2023 athlete Cedric Baxter Jr., who told Tomahawk Nation back in June that getting his Florida State offer “meant a lot because growing up, all I knew was FSU, and when I got the offer, I was extremely grateful because that’s my dream school.”
The ACC announced its plans for fall sports on Wednesday, the big news of course being the rescheduling of all football games to accommodate a 10-plus one format. Florida State will now play home games against Clemson, Georgia Tech, Pittsburgh and Virginia, while heading on the road to play Miami, Duke, Louisville, NC State and Notre Dame, with a to-be-determined non-conference game. Florida would be the natural guess, but reports have surfaced saying the SEC is leaning towards a conference-only model.

The NFL Top 100 players were announced last night, and a few Seminoles found their way on the list:
A great move on the part of head coach Mike Norvell to show support for a family close with Florida State athletics:
I know he doesn't want the attention, but I don't care. Our @FSUFootball coach, @Coach_Norvell, sent a video to @blainethomas8 today. Coach, thank you, we love you. Blaine, take one day at a time. You are loved beyond measure.— Mark Zeigler (@fsuzeigler) July 29, 2020
Florida State basketball got a commitment from another blue-chip, this time center John Butler out of Greenville, South Carolina. FSU now has the No. 2 recruiting class in the country.
