Recruiting:

After initially extending the dead period for recruiting (limiting on-campus visits) until June 30, the NCAA has decided to extend it until the beginning of August:

“The extension maintains consistent recruiting rules for all sports and allows coaches to focus on the student-athletes who may be returning to campus,” M. Grace Calhoun, athletics director at Pennsylvania and NCAA council chair, said in a statement. “The committee is committed to reviewing the dead period again in late June or early July.”

Florida State sent an offer out to 2021 New Jersey defensive end prospect Mike Jarvis.

Speaking of the Garden State, we spoke with 2022 athlete Keon Sabb, the top ranked player in Jersey and the top athlete in the recruiting class, about his FSU offer.

247Sports took at some of the players they’re most looking forward to watching in preseason, with safety Akeem Dent making the list:

He started five games as a true freshman and led everyone in his class in the ACC with seven pass breakups last season. He was rated the nation’s No. 7 cornerback, according to the 247Sports Composite.

State your case why you would (or wouldn’t) take Tamorrion Terry and Sage Surrat over Rondale Moore and Chris Olave:

The Tomahawk Nation scheme review team took the time to break down key and interesting plays from Memphis’ first game of the 2019 season against Ole Miss for the debut edition of Four Verticals, a video series that, well, breaks down key and interesting plays.

This piece from the Gray Lady on the decisions swirling around having a 2020 college football season features a nice drone shot of Doak Campbell Stadium immediately at the top, and has a few Florida State-focused sections:

“In the NCAA. and with other amateurs, players don’t have a strong voice and have a union. Their voice is always suppressed,” said McDonald, who added that only a select few players might have the platform to influence safety measures. “I’m not Joe Burrow; I’m just a tight end at Florida State.”

Florida State is a legitimate contender for Moussa, though LSU is the main competition and the slight favorite. Leonard Hamilton and the gang have pulled off some feats, and there’s a chance this could be the latest:
