New, 2 comments

Plus, all the latest FSU to MLB action

Recruiting

(If his name seems familiar, his son Kenyatta Watson II was a one-time FSU commit.)

If you want an over 2000 word breakdown on all things FSU recruiting, the latest edition of our Florida State of Recruiting series dropped last week.

Football

Florida State special teams took a huge leap forward in Mike Norvell’s first year — but improvements are still needed for a unit that’s failed to score on a kickoff since the BCS National Championship.

Baseball

Brett Nevitt has been on top of all things MLB Draft, charting each Seminole selected to the big leagues. Catch up on the action here.

All Sports

A record number of FSU athletes made it on the ACC Academic Honor Roll.

Florida State University Provost Sally McRorie has announced Jing Wang as the new dean of the College of Nursing. She will start the role Aug. 16, 2021.

After taking a year off, Opening Nights at Florida State will be presenting 29 live performances this fall. Among others, the lineup features highly acclaimed artists Dance Theatre of Harlem (Sept. 30), Patti LaBelle (Nov. 11), The King’s Singers (Feb. 9), Itzhak Perlman (March 2) and Jay Leno (March 10). For the first time, Opening Nights will present Pulitzer Prize-winning author Colson Whitehead on Feb. 10.
