Recruiting:

Our Josh Pick has recruiting interviews from the gridiron to the hardwood. He caught up with blue-chip FSU hoops commit Bryce McGowens’ father to talk his son’s recruitment process.

FSU Hoops is making a late push for 5-star forward Harrison Ingram, the 17th ranked prospect in the 2021 class.

FSU Football was also active on the trail as coach Dillingham offered 2022 4-star DE Anthony Lucas, one of the top players in Arizona.

The ’Noles also offered another out-of-state pass rusher in 4-star Kobie Mckinzie out of Lubbock, Texas.

FSU’s third offer of the day went out to Andre Green, Jr. a 2022 receiver hailing from Virginia.
