After landing in the top five for four-star offensive tackle recruit Micah Morris, Florida State football is also amongst the final 10 schools vying for five-star OT Amarius Mims, the No. 1 player in the state of Georgia.
Meanwhile, Tomahawk Nation spoke with 2021 four-star linebacker Ian Jackson, who says he has a “great relationship” with the new Florida State staff.
Here’s a quick roundup of yesterday’s offers, which you can fully check out discussion on in our recruiting thread (which, I don’t know if you heard, is free):

Head coach Mike Norvell and his staff are doing the best they can to recruit in an uncertain time:
“We’re already doing as much as we can through electronic correspondence, text messages, having guys call us, having guys ‘FaceTime’ (video chat) our staff to get as much of that face-to-face interaction as possible...the thing these kids want to see is our staff. They want a chance to be around us. They want a chance to see who we are and what we’re all about.”
Here’s some, as the kids say “fire,” photos shared by Florida State:

#FSU picked up a JUCO commitment from side-arming RHP Leighton Alley out of TCC today. Alley posted a 2.01 ERA and 30 K’s in 22.1 IP this season. Former two-way star at Nease HS was once committed to FSU as a PWO after throwing for over 5000 yards in high school.— Brett (@brettpn) April 2, 2020
