Florida State Seminoles football has offered Samuel M’Pemba, the No. 1 weakside defensive end in the 2023 class.
You can see what moves FSU has been making on the trail as far as the Class of 2022 goes here, and as always, you can head to our Florida State recruiting thread to catch up on all the latest news and pick the brains of our recruiting staff.

FSU lands four names on ESPN’s top 25 ACC players: Marvin Wilson (No. 3), Hamsah Nasilrideen (No. 9), Asante Samuel Jr. (No. 13) and Tamorrion Terry (No. 19).
We saw Joshua Kaindoh smash a rock commemorating the end of fall camp and in recognition of an impressive display of buy-in during the offseason a few weeks ago, and today, strength and conditioning coach Josh Storms showed off the other potential rocks (not minerals) that could meet a similar fate this season:

We spoke with head coach Mike Norvell as part of media availability yesterday, as well as defensive line coach Odell Haggins and defensive linemen Marvin Wilson and Robert Cooper.
Our Austin Cox also spoke with EJ Manuel and Mark Richt yesterday as part of Zoom conference call — and the former FSU quarterback and former FSU offensive coordinator both had good words for the 2020 Seminoles.
Austin also knocked out a piece detailing the series history between Florida State and the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets, from close calls to blowouts.
Florida State is off from practice today — but you can read CoachAB break down some of the team’s game prep here.
The latest edition of Tomahawk Nation’s podcast Seminole Wrap is here, featuring a breakdown of FSU vs. Georgia Tech from Kevin Little (Xs and Noles) as well as some further insight into the depth chart.
Norvell also spoke with Florida State’s marching band, the Marching Chiefs, making sure to thank them and acknowledge their vital role in Saturday’s game:
Many thanks to @Coach_Norvell for stopping by our practice this afternoon. We can’t wait to support you and @FSUFootball on Saturday. Rest assured, we’ll be loud and proud [and socially distanced]. #Noles #MCATDT pic.twitter.com/JlJLfmdhVG— Marching Chiefs (@FSUChiefs) September 10, 2020

Florida State volleyball has been picked to finish fifth in the ACC.
Unfortunately, I have decided to withdraw from next week’s U.S. Open. I'm looking forward to getting healthy and competing at 100% again very soon. pic.twitter.com/Mukh8oKUEJ— Brooks Koepka (@BKoepka) September 9, 2020
