FSU QB commit Luke Altmyer is leaving a good impression through two days at the elite 11 finals:
Full rundown of Day 1 at the @Elite11 coming soon. But in my opinion, your top 5 on the night are:— Parker Thune (@ParkerThune) June 30, 2020
1) Caleb Williams, uncommitted
2) Luke Altmyer, #Noles commit
3) Christian Veilleux, #PennState commit
4) Garrett Nussmeier, #geauxtigers commit
5) Miller Moss, #USC commit
Early reactions from the @Elite11:— Parker Thune (@ParkerThune) June 30, 2020
- #Noles commit Luke Altmyer is turning heads with his footwork and tight, accurate ball
- #TarHeels commit Drake Maye can’t find a groove
- #Sooners target Caleb Williams is the most talented QB here and it’s not close
2) Luke Altmyer - The #Noles commit was my breakout candidate prior to the event, and he didn't disappoint. I was very impressed with Altmyer's footwork on tape, but he's not just a finesse passer. He showed a quick release and well above-average arm strength.— Parker Thune (@ParkerThune) June 30, 2020
FSU extended an offer to long Garden State 4-star CB Jaeden Gould.
As well as a big-time 2022 talent in IMG blue-chip RB Kaytron Allen.
Florida State rounded out the evening by handing out another offer to a defensive player, this time it was 2021 DE Landyn Watson

While he was already one of the best college receivers over the last couple of years, with half this list headed to the pros, Tamorrion Terry is truly one the best deep threats in college football:

As a Hokie and Blacksburg truther, I’d have to go with Athens, Georgia.
It might be some time until this stadium is full again, but we’re all looking forward to when it is:
Coach Dillingham echoing the sentiments of FSU great Deion Sanders:
FSU Hoops is picking up some more steam on the recruiting trail as they continue to trend toward securing the services of 5-star Matthew Cleveland:

According to PFF, Jameis Winston has the highest rate of positively graded plays since 2006, which is impressive considering he has been in the NFL for a shorter period of time than the others on this list:
