The ACC’s highest graded running back was none other than Seminoles stand-out Cam Akers.

Willie Taggarts inaugural National Signing Day is just a few weeks away, but tickets are already sold out.

Recruiting

The new Florida State coaching staff is hitting the recruiting trail hard, and a familiar ’Noles face went along for the ride to visit major c/o 2020 target Amari Severson.

New offensive coordinator/QB’s coach Walt Bell has barely moved into Tallahassee and he’s hitting the trail himself.

Speaking of the recruiting trail, head coach Willie Taggart was at Lowndes High School to visit c/o 2018 3-star offensive tackle Jalen Goss.

Coach Taggart continues to make strong recruiting efforts on all fronts, this time reaching out to c/o 2018 4-star wide receiver Jacob Copeland out of Pensacola. Copeland is the No. 11 receiver in the class, the No. 13 Florida prospect, and is ranked No. 65 nationally.

Pensacola was a big area of interest, and Coach Taggart keyed in on Pensacola (Fla.) West Fla Tech’s c/o 2018 wide receiver Keyshawn Helton and c/o 2019 3-star offensive tackle Adrian Medley.

Florida State’s Odell Haggins and head coach Willie Taggart reliever an in-home visit to c/o 2018 3-star defensive tackle Jamarcus Chatman from Rome High School in Georgia.

The Seminoles have offered c/o 2019 4-star tight end Hudson Henry out of Little Rock, Arkansas. Henry is the No. 1 tight end in the class and the No. 1 prospect from the state of Arkansas.

Final class of 2018 Rivals100 list was released, and Jaiden Woodbey (29), Asante Samuel (46), AJ Lytton (76), and Amari Gainer (79) all made the list.

Selection Sunday for men’s hoops is 7 weeks away and the Seminoles still have some work to do if they want to be a sure lock to make it to the big dance.

Although there is more work to be done for men’s hoops, it does seem that the Seminoles projection for the NCAA tournament has improved.
