Recruiting

Victory is oh so sweet, especially when it’s over the likes of Kentucky, Miami, Alabama, and Georgia, just to name a few. The Seminoles have gained a commitment from c/o 2018 linebacker Xavier Peters. Peters showed up big at the Under Armour All America game and is the No. 12 linebacker in the class.

And there’s another one in the books for the ’Noles after this huge recruiting weekend, as 4-star c/o 2018 linebacker Dennis Briggs Jr. has shut his recruitment down and pledged his commitment to Florida State. While the crystal ball was leaning towards Miami after his official visit to the Hurricanes, that quickly changed after making the trip to FSU.

As National Signing Day nears, 4-star c/o 2018 defensive end Malcolm Lamar has scheduled another unofficial to Florida State before the dead period begins. This is a good sign for the Seminoles before that February 7th date approaches. Lamar has offers on the table from Alabama, Florida, Oregon, and Miami to name a few.

The 2018 recruiting class may be the center focus right now, but the Seminoles staff is not letting off the gas pedal on the future of FSU football as well. The ’Noles have offered class of 2020 running back Lawrance Toafili from Largo (Fla.) Pinellas Park.

The Seminoles staff continues to hit the road, but this time the entire staff is making the trip together to Tampa. Time for some family bonding, if you ask me.

Also, can we just talk about how on point their GIF game is?

Keeping an eye on the enemy: Louisville has hired former Notre Dame defensive coordinator and current Georgia analyst Brian VanGorder. One thing to note— in his three years at Notre Dame, VanGorder never produced a defense better than 28th.

Pro Bowl aside: protect Jalen Ramsey at all costs.
