Recruiting

Big names continue to announce their intentions to head up to Tallahassee as Florida State football’s spring season gets set to kick off:

For all things recruiting head on over to our transfer portal thread and our Florida State football recruiting thread, where you can catch up on the latest news and pick the brain of our recruiting staff.

Football

Florida State inches closer and closer to the start of spring football — Saturday not only is a big recruiting day, but also the first day of practice. We’ll be live from the Moore and IFP to keep you updated on all the biggest happenings of the day.

We’ve broken down each of the FSU position groups, wrapping up today with linebackers, and now the Triple Option team is supplementing those previews by diving into the film — first up, quarterbacks.

Former Lafayette College head coach John Garrett, who has an extensive resume that includes stops in the NFL and at the college level for the past 27 years, has been hired as the director of scouting for the offense for Florida State.

Basketball

FSU men’s hoops, just days after Matthew Cleveland entered his names in the illustrious company of those who have contributed a buzzer-beating win to the Seminoles, is set to take on Notre Dame tonight.

Meanwhile, the women’s basketball team wrapped up its regular season with a win vs. Pitt and is gearing for the ACC Tournament, where’ll they’ll open play with Boston College this Thursday.

Morgan Jones (All-ACC First Team), O’Mariah Gordon (Freshman Team) and Makayla Timpson (Freshman Team) all earned conference honors.

Baseball

Perfect Game USA named Florida State Seminoles baseball pitcher Parker Messick as its Pitcher of the Week, writing, “Messick tossed about as close to a perfect game over seven innings as one could get, to the tune of seven shutout with 13 strikeouts and no walks. He allowed just one hit and one hit batter as he was in complete control of his full arsenal. Similar to Parada, Messick is near the top of the sport at his position and this efficient masterpiece is another in a long resume that Messick will have when his college career is done.”

Another week, another non-conference mid-week loss for FSU baseball, this time an extra-innings loss to the Mercer Bears.

Don’t cry because it’s over — smile because it happened. Our young prodigy Brett Nevitt is switching sides, heading over to 247Sports to bring his coverage there. His podcast, Sunday Golds, will continue to be put and published, for those curious.

Softball

No. 3 FSU softball (16-0) continues to dominate early in the season, staying undefeated after notching an 8-1 win over FAMU.

In addition, Florida State pitcher Kathryn Sandercock was named ACC Pitcher of the Week for the second straight week after going 3-0 last week with a save in four appearances.
