Recruiting:

FSU went into the Lone Star State and secured the commitment of blue-chip corner Hunter Washington. Washington announced his commitment via a commitment video shared on his Twitter yesterday:

HC Mike Norvell was hyped on the new addition to Tribe 2021:

As was defensive assistant Slade Buckley:

FSU offered 2021 OT Garner Langlo, who is teammates with current FSU commit Jake Slaughter, and another OT target Caleb Johnson. Could FSU land the Trinity Catholic trio? Or should I say the Holy Trinity?

Texas wide receiver prospect JJ Henry spoke with our Josh Pick about his game and his surprise when he received his FSU offer.

FSU commit Branden Jennings is on the virtual recruiting trail for the Seminoles, trying to persuade 4-star defensive lineman Tyrion Ingram-Dawkins to join him at FSU:

And even better news for FSU Baseball as Reese Albert announced his intent to return to FSU next year.

I’m sure everyone could use a story about overcoming adversity right now. Take a look at FSU volleyball’s Morgan Chacon’s journey back to the court/sand after breaking her leg:

Alumni:

All this down time has Terance Mann thinking about furthering his education:

As well as perfecting his jerk chicken:

Derwin James is certainly preparing like there is going to be an NFL season:

The Last Dance recently covered Michael Jordan’s stint in baseball, Mike Tyson announced that “he’s back,” and now Derrick Brooks to the MLB?

Mike Tyson isn’t the only thing that’s back with the announcement Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater is making a come back. The Clippers thinking a pair of ’Noles should be featured:
