Florida State had a multitude of official visitors on campus this past weekend. In the latest episode of The Nolecast, Bud Elliott and Ingram Smith break down everything that you need to know from FSU’s biggest recruiting event before National Signing Day.

The newest member of #Tribe19, kicker commit Ryan Fitzgerald, shows off some impressive leg strength via a video on his personal Twitter account.

Fitzgerald also had a pointed message for his former teammates, and current Seminole targets, OG Kamaar Bell and DB Jay Ward.

Recent Michigan State decommitment, and a prospect who visited Tallahassee last weekend, athlete Alante Brown has included the Seminoles among his Top 5 teams. The other schools in the mix are Tennessee, Pittsburgh, Iowa State, and Texas Tech.

Current Florida State commit Nick Cross makes his feelings known on Brown’s upcoming choice.

Cross also released his own list on Tuesday. His full list of potential schools includes FSU, Georgia, Penn State, and Maryland. He has since removed this tweet.

Class of 2020 5-star OLB Sa’Vell Smalls will release his list of top schools soon. Smalls goes to the same school, Garfield High in Seattle, WA, that current Seminole receiver Tre’Shaun Harrison attended.


Wide receivers coach Ron Dugans has a very unique way of getting ready for work during his morning commute.
