After bringing Chubba Purday and Tate Rodemaker into the fold on short notice, Norvell and company just secured a commitment from 2021 quarterback Luke Altmyer. With Chad Mascoe committed for the 2022 class, the future of FSU’s quarterbook room currently looks pretty bright.
Altmyer didn’t waste any time getting into the spirit:
But now that Norvell and Dillingham have secured the services of three quarterbacks — that counts as starting a collection to me — does that tell us anything about what they look for in a QB?
FSU had one last recruiting weekend before Norvell’s first National Signing Day in the Garnet and Gold:
Awesome visit to FSU this weekend. I would like to thank the coaches, GA’s and support staff for allowing me to have time with you. #WORK @Coach_Norvell @CoachAAtkins @coachstorms @AmourManrey75 @sca_football @FSUFootball pic.twitter.com/CNeOOibbMZ— Clay Wedin (@ClayWedin) February 3, 2020
Also, this staff has been really busy putting out offers:

2021 defensive back Terrion Arnold spent the weekend watching the Super Bowl with the staff.
Whew — I think I have carpal tunnel now.
6’5 255lb commit Markeston Douglas also threw down a monster dunk:
Impressive dunk by Florida State TE commit @markeston3 to end the game! Diamond in the rough find by @Coach_Norvell and his staff. @NateGreer26 @Coach_Norvell @Locklyn33 @KennyDillingham @haywoodtomcats @Coach_Tokarz @CNee247 pic.twitter.com/qVDBjcZCvs— Chris Smith (@CoachSmithHHS) February 3, 2020
From The Athletic: Revisiting the 2016 recruiting class — FSU’s third-ranked class ends up unranked.
For fun, watch recently enrolled WR Ja’Khi Douglas go 99 yards, reaching 22 mph. I think he would have scored before I reached the 50.
WATCH: @FSUFootball signee Ja’Khi Douglas (@youngg_baller) reached a max speed of 22.0 MPH on this 99-yards TD #myRAmaxspeed @Tomahawknation @WayneMcGaheeIII @Tim_Linafelt @FSU_Recruiting | @Noles247 | #KeepCLIMBing pic.twitter.com/PEYzJaYA8N— Recruiting Analytics (@RecruitAlytics1) February 3, 2020
In a little bit of ACC scouting, it looks like Syracuse is getting Jon Bon Jovi’s son, while Miami has more changes to their staff:
SOURCE: Former #ASU OC Rob Likens is expected to become #Miami’s new WR coach and former #FSU assistant Telly Lockette is getting hired as an offensive analyst. Lockette, the former HC at Miami Central and was OC at Miami Northwestern, his alma mater, has big ties in Dade.— Bruce Feldman (@BruceFeldmanCFB) February 2, 2020
Meanwhile, Clemson QB Chase Brice transfers to Duke.
FSU dropped a game to the defending national champions and then rebounded against Virginia Tech before they dipped a bit in the polls. So your No. 8 Men’s Basketball team took on North Carolina at home last night and ground down the Tarheels 65-59, but hey — an ugly win is still a win.
A lot of ugly wins for FSU this season. Keep 'em coming— Basketball School (@MichaelRogner) February 4, 2020
Wait — Florida State is a virtual lock to make the NCAA tournament in ESPN’s first Bubble Watch, and we’re still double-digit days ahead of Valentine’s Day? Has it ever happened this early before? Also, this is awesome:
FSU 60-3 at home in their last 63 hoops game....wow....— Dan Hicken (@DanHicken) February 4, 2020
No worries, Women’s Golf defeated Virginia.
This is insane. That’s it, that’s the tweet:
Mike Norvell had a reaction to Derwin James and Jalen Ramsey’s funny Super Bowl spots:
Derrick Nnadi didn’t just have a good game and win a Super Bowl and then do confetti angels on the field, he also paid for all pet adoptions at the largest no-kill animal shelter in Kansas City:
We’re so honored to partner with @DerrickNnadi who is sponsoring the adoption fees of all of our adoptables dogs at our locations! What an incredibly generous gesture and we want to thank Derrick for his support all season long. pic.twitter.com/xXWqXkQPS9— KC Pet Project (@kcpetproject) February 3, 2020
Then this hero got his celebration on:
