2025 CB Antonio Cromartie Jr. on his visit to Florida State:— MAX (@maxescarpio) October 18, 2022
“I love going to FSU, the atmosphere is always great at night, and the team fought to the end which shows a good culture. I think FSU is on track to be the FSU we’re used to seeing.”
Florida State, after a tough stretch, is on its second bye of the season this week, taking the opportunity to regroup and refocus ahead of next week’s game against the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets.
The Seminoles are out on the practice field looking to find their footing again following a three-game losing streak against three-straight ranked opponents.
FSU head coach Mike Norvell spoke on his squad’s approach to the bye, as well as the status of several players working back from injury including defensive tackle Fabien Lovett and wide receiver Winston Wright.
In addition to Norvell, defensive tackle Robert Cooper and athlete Ja’Khi Douglas spoke on their expectations for the team moving forward and how much they’re looking forward to seeing the team at full strength.
