This is bigger than football or any sport, so it goes up here: Florida State has selected its new university president to succeed John Thrasher. What could it mean for FSU athletics?

Recruiting:

NBA Mock Draft: Scottie Barnes ::eye emoji::

6. Golden State Warriors: F Scottie Barnes

Ht./Wt: 6-9, 227 lbs | Class: Freshman | Florida State: 10.3 points, 4 rpg, 4.1 apg

The Warriors will be in a win-now mode next season with Klay Thompson returning and adding a healthy James Wiseman. Barnes would be a great additional player to this Warriors team and played point-forward during his one year at Florida State. He’s a great defender with his long 6-foot-9 frame, grabbing 36 steals this past season and can be plugged in anywhere on the court. His outside shot will need some work at the next level but Barnes is the best available prospect at No. 6 and could sneak inside the top-five after pre-draft workouts.
