Football

FSU head coach Willie Taggart continues to drop advice dimes.

Coach Taggart is bringing a new tradition to Tallahassee, that being the 2018 Women’s Football Clinic. PS, you’ll be seeing me there!

Sophomore receiver DJ Matthews shares some of his experiences at FSU thus far and how this new era has everyone energized.

Junior linebacker Josh Brown is settling into his role with the Seminoles after two difficult years.

Recruiting

Florida State has offered 4-star c/o 2019 receiver George Pickens out of Hoover (AL). Pickens is a major prospect, and at 6’5 199lbs, he has a major upside. Pickens is currently committed to Auburn but has made it clear that he still plans to take some official visits.

FSU has also offered 3-star c/o 2019 tight end Garmon Randolph out of Jefferson (GA).

4-Star c/o 2019 West Coast cornerback prospect Jeremiah Criddell showed the ’Noles some love.

Early enrollee Jaiden Woodbey’s flip to Tallahassee has all the West Coast Noles dominos falling into place, as he shows guys that the big shift from out west to Florida State is the move.
