The latest odds for the winner of the 2017 College Football Playoff National Championship have the Seminoles among a trio of teams with the second-best odds.

Jared Shanker of ESPN put together a feature on FSU’s Levonta Taylor and how he is handling his first offseason in Tallahassee.

Derwin James took to Twitter on Monday to share a video of him doing something that is very impressive but should come as no surprise given his freakish athleticism.

Fox Sports radio personality Colin Cowherd seems very high on next year’s Florida State team, although the season is still months away and I’m sure his opinion will change multiple times before then.

FSU’s Spring Game attendance may have been nowhere near capacity, but it still sits in the top ten among all attendance numbers nationwide with two weekends of spring games left.


James Cook, FSU commit and the brother of Dalvin Cook, announced on Monday that he has been selected to participate in this year’s Under Armour All-American game.

Teradja Mitchell, the No. 1 inside linebacker in the 2018 recruiting class, will make one more trip to FSU soon before he announces his decision, Noles247 reports. ($)

Nadab Joseph, a four-star 2018 safety, shared a pretty unique edit which FSU sent his way over the weekend.


Dalvin Cook’s draft stock is still taking hits according to some mock drafts as SB Nation’s Dan Kadar has him outside the first round in his latest mock.

Jonathan Isaac continues to be among the top lottery picks in NBA mock drafts across the board as he is a top-five selection in Ricky O’Donnell’s latest for SB Nation.

Falling to No. 4 would be the worst-case scenario for Boston. If it happens, swinging for the fences with Isaac would be an interesting move.

The 6’10 wing from Florida State looks like the highest-upside player on the board. He projects as a great, versatile defender with a burgeoning offensive skill set. If his jumper is for real, the Celtics will have a perfect power forward for the modern NBA.

The Florida State baseball team pulled off another upset of No. 4 Clemson on Monday to take the series from the Tigers.
