Recruiting:

As we have documented in depressing detail before, FSU’s offensive line this year was atrocious. As such, o-line recruiting has become one of the main focuses of the coaches, and the fanbase, this offseason. Read our latest update on where OL recruiting stands for 2019.

Outside of the aforementioned offensive line, linebacker is the biggest need that the Seminoles need to address in the 2019 recruiting class. Bud Elliott provides the latest update on commits, offers, and targets at the LB position.

Florida State has one quarterback committed for 2019 in Sam Howell, but will it take another in the class? The latest QB recruiting update can be found here.

FSU had an in-home visit with 2019 commit Derick Hunter on Monday night.

The staff also paid a visit 2019 4-star cornerback Marcus Banks last night.

Tribe 19’s Nick Cross doing some recruiting of his own on 2020 5-star linebacker Antoine Sampah.

Football:

According to head coach Willie Taggart, Landon Dickerson is making steady progress in his recovery from an ankle injury that he sustained during the course of the season.

The 2019 NFL Draft will be absolutely loaded with defensive linemen. SI.com recently put together some scouting reports on the most notable names. FSU’s Brian Burns is discussed about halfway through the article.

CBSSports.com muses that Florida State’s season-ending defeat to the University of Florida “might actually be the palate cleaner the Seminoles need to officially reboot the program.” It is mentioned in the Best of the Rest section of the linked story.

ESPN.com has the ’Noles down 2 spots in their weekly P5 conference power rankings after the loss on Saturday.

Not FSU-related, but an interesting piece from Bud on why schools and coaches choose to move on, even when the alternatives don’t appear to be that much better.

Men’s Basketball:

The No. 14 ranked FSU men’s basketball team will take on the No. 18 ranked Purdue Boilermakers in Tallahassee at 9 pm tonight. The game will be broadcast on ESPN2.
