Florida State has offered 2023 four-star running back Mark Fletcher, Jr.; FSU already has 2023 four-star RB Cedric Baxter committed.

FSU could be on the verge of landing 2022 four-star quarterback Nicco Marchiol.

Regarding FSU: “I think just the relationship with Coach (Kenny) Dillingham and how much trust he has with me I think can transfer over to the field and we can take it a long way. We did a virtual tour and it’s been a lot of fun. I can really see myself living there four to five years and I can definitely see myself in Tallahassee.”


Athlon ranked the top 15 games in the ACC and Clemson at Florida State came in fourth.

Florida State is defensive line U according to ESPN; even when FSU is bad the defensive line is good:

There’s certainly no arguing the impressive history of Florida State D-linemen, with 20 players selected in the first three rounds during the Position U era. Even amid a tumultuous past few years at FSU, the defensive line continues to churn out talent. Brian Burns was a first-round pick in 2019, and two D-linemen were taken in the 2018 draft. Plus, DeMarcus Walker was a second-rounder in 2017. And while the rebuilding effort is far from complete in Tallahassee, the D-line still figures to put a few more big names in the draft with Marvin Wilson potentially the top interior lineman in the country entering 2020.

There’s a reason why FSU has such a legacy in the trenches:

It’s a new era in college football; coaches can no longer be silent with the many social justice issues affecting the majority of their players. Mike Norvell has issued a statement.

With multiple conferences canceling football this fall Bowl Projections could become exceedingly difficult to fill.

Other Sports:

A fantastic culture leads to the type of senior leadership FSU has in its basketball program on a yearly basis; last year it was Trent Forrest now it’s MJ Walker:

Devin Vassell could end up playing for the New York Knicks.


Jameis Winston already has fans in the Saints’ locker room.

If Derwin James continues to play and improve at the all-pro level he’s already displayed; he could become the first safety to be looking at $100 million dollar contract.
