Jacob Pugh might not be as much a stand-up comic as he is a performance-art comedian. Look no further than the Christmas-themed suit he wore to last season's Orange Bowl against Michigan -- a bright red ensemble with reindeer, Christmas trees and snowmen dotting the entirety of the outfit. It was good for a laugh, even if Pugh's competition won't find much funny about his game this season. The senior linebacker should be one of the better pass-rushers in the ACC in 2017. -- David M.

2018 four-star wide receiver Joshua Moore, who recently decommitted from FSU, included the Seminoles in a list of upcoming visits.

Bud Elliott broke down the best quarterbacks, including some FSU targets, from this weekend’s Elite 11 camp.

Trevor Lawrence: The Clemson commit and nation’s No. 1 overall recruit for 2018 showed why he’s rated that high over the weekend. He had strong passes all weekend, and got some praise from coach Trent Dilfer. His stock is just as high as it was before the finals began.

Justin Fields: The Penn State commit that also plays baseball had a solid weekend overall. His best performance came on Saturday night, as he had some of the strongest throws of the group. He showed off a strong arm on Sunday, too.
