Early Signing Period is right around the corner so let’s catch up with some of FSU’s targets and likely signees after the big recruiting push last weekend:
The bell cow of FSU’s class, five-star Demorie Tate will participate in the Under Armour Game:

Here’s some of McCluster’s highlights:

Four-star receiver Malachi Wideman’s visit was a success.
Four-star linebacker commit Stephen Dix, Jr. took an official visit - “This program is going to turn around.”

One-time commit Morven Joseph is also being recruited by #NoleNation:
I’ll be signing on December 18th* at Simpson Park community center (Lakeland, Fl) @ 4pm.— MorvenJ MoJo (@MorvenJoseph) December 16, 2019
After his official visit OL recruit Alex Atcavage re-opened his recruitment:
Due to me opening my recruitment, I will be signing in February. God has a plan— Alex Atcavage (@AlexAtcavage) December 16, 2019
Florida State’s new coordinators, Kenny Dillingham and Adam Fuller, spoke to the media for the first time as members of the ’Noles coaching staff. Fuller spoke about working with Mike Norvell and the kind of defense he wants to build in Tallahassee and the traits and characteristics he wants his unit to exhibit. Dillingham spoke about the new style of offense FSU will run, working with Norvell, relationships with coaches and players, and more. One thing that tied both coordinators’ pressers was being on the same page.
New coordinator "aggressive on defense" bingo card drink.— Bud Elliott (@BudElliott3) December 16, 2019
(I actually think Fuller's D will be aggressive since Norvell is a Todd Graham guy and Graham loves to bring pressure, but literally every new DC ever says they'll be aggressive)
Gabe Nabers and Jaiden Lars-Woodbey won some hardware:
Alex Hornibrook and Dontavious Jackson’s FSU careers have come to an end.
Talented Louisville OT Mekhi Becton’s college career has also ended:
Enormous Louisville OT Mekhi Becton will skip his senior season to enter the 2020 NFL draft and he will not play in the Music City Bowl vs Mississippi State. The 20-year-old 6-7, 360-pounder really blossomed under new Cards O-line coach Dwayne Ledford this season.— Bruce Feldman (@BruceFeldmanCFB) December 16, 2019
The Men’s basketball team rose in both polls, and will take on North Florida at the Donald L. Tucker Center tonight at 8:30.
This early in the season bracketology projections are literally all over the map. Not that they aren’t up in the air all the way until Selection Sunday, but still.
Former ’Noles in the NFL never cease to be entertaining, whether it’s Jameis Winston’s rollercoaster or the explosiveness of Dalvin Cook or Derwin James’ insane instincts or Nigel Bradham’s playmaking.
