The Florida Board of Governors approved Florida State University’s plan for reopening in the fall during a meeting on Wednesday. The plan was presented by President John Thrasher, who made sure to say that a key part of it was being flexible to whatever may develop during the semester:

“We’ve talked about flexibility numerous times … I’m very appreciative of that because as you know, things are changing on a daily — and sometimes hourly — basis. What we’re talking about today in our Fall 2020 plan could obviously be very different than when we start at the end of August.”

“I’m a big proponent of individual responsibility, and I’m going to really focus on that with our students when they come back.”


Florida State was busy on the recruiting trail Tuesday, sending out offers to a blue-chip 2022 defensive back, and two unranked Atlanta prospects (2022 running back Damari Alston and 2022 tight end Holden Staes) with big-name offers.

Josh Pick caught up with 2022 four-star defensive end Kenyatta Jackson, who says he could see himself in Tallahassee.
