It’s finally time to talk some basketball

NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament-NC-Greensboro at Florida State Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

It’s been a while since Matt and Michael got together to talk some hoops, but honestly, there wasn’t much reason to. Florida State went after transfer Tre Mitchell and whiffed. The same could be said for Kofi Cockburn. Toss in Moussa Cisse as well. The ‘Noles were targeting a big man, but missed at every turn.

Well, since nothing is happening with the roster, we decided it was time to talk basketball. We start with the summer update. What does the roster look like? What are the strengths and weaknesses of this year’s version? How has recruiting worked out by position?

From there we launch into the NBA Draft. FSU had the two highest ACC players in the draft last year, and with Scottie Barnes will most likely have the highest drafted ACC player again. But there are plenty of other ‘Noles going pro, and we touch on them as well. Plus, how the current roster shake out for next year’s draft?

We touch on 2022 recruiting. Florida State has had multiple top-50 type recruiting on campus (hooray for the return of in-person recruiting), but can they land one to get this class started? And where does assistant coach Steve Smith fit in to this? He’s probably the least talked about of the assistants, but this class could have his fingerprints all over it.

Finally, we touch on some golf. Why? Why not? There are plenty of FSU golfers out there aside from Brooks Koepka and Daniel Berger, so we get caught up on some of the important names to know.
