Florida State football, recruiting news: Four-star LB Amari Gainer set to make decision Friday

Your daily dose of Florida State football, recruiting and alumni news.


  • Local four-star LB Amari Gainer from Tallahassee (Fla.) Chiles will be announcing his commitment later today, with Florida State vying for his pledge alongside Alabama, Texas and Miami. Florida State is considered a heavy favorite for the No. 319 overall player in the country according to 247 Sports Composite rankings. Stay tuned to Tomahawk Nation for updates.


I was surprised by this ranking myself. How does a team that has to play Alabama, Louisville, Clemson and Florida this season finish ranked in the middle of the ACC? Well, of those four huge games, only one is an official road game (Clemson). Also, they're all spaced out pretty nicely. There's only a week between Clemson and Florida, but it's spent against Delaware State, and I don't imagine it proving to be much of a challenge. All in all, it's hard to imagine a schedule with this many marquee games being set up any better for success.
