ESPN did a second edition of its Position U series, detailing which schools produce the most talent at each position. The site had Florida State Seminoles football ranked as No. 1 for defensive linemen, No. 5 for wide receivers, No. 6 for quarterbacks, No. 6 for defensive backs and No. 10 for offensive line.
This is actually understating it. By our metrics, the difference between FSU at No. 1 and UCLA at No. 2 is as big as the difference between UCLA and No. 12 Baylor. https://t.co/8INmlYk0LY— ️♈️ (@ADavidHaleJoint) August 25, 2020

One other storyline was the benefit of Norvell and Dugans’ history as receivers — a topic explored by new Tomahawk Nation contributor Austin Cox.
Norvell also confirmed that offensive lineman Zane Herring will miss the season after having shoulder surgery, while Dugans alluded to freshman receiver Bryan Robinson being hurt, though didn’t go into further detail.
Senior defensive tackle Marvin Wilson added another accolade to his resume Tuesday, having been named a preseason first-team AP All-American.
Wilson joins Joshua Kaindoh and Asante Samuel Jr. as part of The Athletics’ NFL Draft Big Board.
A late happy birthday shout out, but technically, does time even exist in 2020?
