We’re still bringing you the best in Spring game coverage —
Seminole Wrap podcast: The Athletic’s Andy Staples, fresh off being one of FSU’s guest coaches/playcallers for the Spring game, joins the pod. Andy was kind enough to talk the process behind getting selected, what it felt like to successfully nail a wheel route, his impressions of the program, The Neverending Story and more.
McKenzie Milton needed five seconds to look at this call sheet and decide — long before we called anything — how @aadelsonESPN and I would call the game-winning TD. He pointed at No. 7 and said if we hit big any play, follow up immediately with that. https://t.co/KbjtqNS1kW pic.twitter.com/9nyXBOZtjv— Andy Staples (@Andy_Staples) April 12, 2021

FSU announced they are partnering with the Apex program, which will help Seminole athletes capitalize on their NIL, as well as offering courses. Again, this is a big deal and you can read all the details about it here.
Also, this video about it is exceptionally well done:
So all of that begs the question:
FSU picked up the commitment of Georgia athlete Rodney Hill over the weekend, who had obviously been listening to Jalen Ramsey. Coach AB has more great insight as he scouts Hill’s versatile talent.
Hill is sure to be followed by more commitments, so stay up to date with the Official Tribe 22 Recruiting Thread #3.
