COLLEGE FOOTBALL: SEP 03 Virginia Tech at Florida State

Recruiting

Florida State snagged a signature from blue-chip Louisiana receiver Destyn Hill, who inked his enrollment papers yesterday as National Signing Day took off.

As for FSU’s other set of snags, the transfers, they gathered to talk with Bryant McFadden and other special guests (hint: Jameis Winston) after the hooplah was finished:

FSU head coach Mike Norvell spoke to the media after, and you can find an entire transcript of his comments here.

Want to catch up on all the action from yesterday? Looking to get answers on who FSU is targeting in 2022, 2023, and beyond? How about in the transfer portal? We’ve got your back in both of our Florida State Seminoles football recruiting threads:

This is ominous? But I like it?

Basketball

Florida State women’s basketball is getting set to take on North Carolina tonight as part of its four-game road trip. Tip-off is set at 6 p.m. with the game being televised on ACC Network Extra.

NBA Noles are thriving, per usual:

Baseball

As Brett continues his countdown to FSU baseball with a player profile on Tyler Martin, the latest episode of his pod in collaboration with Ariya Massoudi just dropped as well:

All Sports

Four FSU track and field athletes earned ACC honors, with Don’drea Swint and Jayla Kirkland being named ACC Track Performers of the Week and Isaac Grimes and Ruta Lasmane earning ACC Men’s Field Performer and Women’s Co-Field Performer.

Florida State’s esports team took down Concord’s Overwatch squad last night, but dropped a match to Rensselaer Polytechnic:

For the second year in a row, Florida State University College of Law’s Black Law Students Association (BLSA) — first-year students David Akintonde, of Chicago, Illinois; Samantha Seiglie, of Sunny Isles Beach, Florida; Khamisi Thorpe, of Delray Beach, Florida; Keiana Wilkerson, of Jacksonville, Florida; and alternate Ndeye “Fatou” Calixte, of Neunkirchen, German — placed first in the Constance Baker Motley Mock Trial Competition during the Southern Region of the Black Law Students Association’s convention.

This isn’t the easiest way to end a normally light, easy read, but it is an important one — President John Thrasher issued this statement yesterday, commemorating FBI Special Agent Daniel Alfin, an FSU alumnus who was killed in the line of duty in South Florida.

We are saddened by the tragic loss of FBI Special Agent Daniel Alfin, an FSU alumnus who was killed in the line of duty along with Special Agent Laura Schwartzenberger on Tuesday in Sunrise, Fla. Daniel was an outstanding student who graduated in 2007 with a degree in information technology and was dedicated to serving and protecting our most vulnerable citizens. On behalf of everyone at FSU, we extend our deepest condolences to the family and friends of Special Agents Alfin and Schwartzenberger. We will never forget their bravery and ultimate sacrifice.
