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.

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.
