Florida State sent out a few offers Wednesday, including to 2021 defensive end Khristian Zachary (who we featured as a potential FSU offer a full month ago) and 2022 athlete Jai-Ayviauynn Celestine. Be sure to head to our official Florida State Seminoles football recruiting thread to catch up on the latest news and join in on daily discussion.

Our recruiting lead Josh Pick talked with four-star defensive end De’Jahn “Nugget” Warren about earning a long-awaited Florida State offer, why heading to Tallahassee is so intriguing and how he got a nickname like Nugget. He also got an update from offensive tackle Garner Langlo.

Tomahawk Nation’s scheme crew broke down film of recent four-star commit Hunter Washington, listing off what the defensive back brings to the ’Noles.

The NCAA is extending its recruiting dead period until June 30 (meaning no on-campus visits) — though on May 27, the committee may vote to extend it even further. The committee voted last week to allow coaching staffs to make calls “at their discretion” (which for offensive tackle Amarius Mims was 34 calls in one day) until the conclusion of the extended dead period as related to the coronavirus outbreak.

It’s already had its an effect on Florida State basketball recruiting:


Starting today, ESPN will air Florida State vs. Miami games for 27 straight hours, starting with the 2002 matchup at 7 p.m. on the flagship channel (you can feel free to skip this one). Six others will be on ESPNU, and two on ACC Network.

Who do you got in a Mike Norvell vs. Marvin Wilson one-on-one basketball game?

That’s, um, one way of putting the new Los Angeles Rams uniforms, I guess?


Let’s take a trip down memory lane, and reflect upon Jackson Lueck’s big day and its even bigger ending:


Why stop the nostalgia at just one ACC Tournament walkoff?
