Recruiting

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

On the Packer and Durham show, FSU head coach Mike Norvell was asked about the new state of college football — and levied some interesting accusations, saying he’s been aware of other schools trying to recruit his current players:

“We had conversations, there were a couple guys on our team that have had people from the outside talking. They were not in the portal, but they’re trying to make decisions on certain things for their future.”

“That’s what’s unfortunate. But grateful for the guys we have and the team that we’re going to be able to move forward with. But for college athletics, we want to be together here moving forward.”

How does running back Trey Benson fit into the Florida State offense? Kevin Little and CoachAB jump into the film and discuss.

Basketball

Baseball

Florida State Seminoles baseball took both games of the doubleheader against Jacksonville on Tuesday, 2-1 and 5-4. Next for the Seminoles is hosting Miami for a three-game series over the weekend.

National recognition for two FSU softball players — In the last three games, Sydney Sherrill went 6 for 12, batting .500 and elevating her average to .324 on the season. She scored 5 runs, tallied 6 hits, brought in 5 runs, and became the first-ever Seminole to record 3 home runs in a single game, earning her player of the week from NFCA, D1 Softball, and ACC softball. Kathryn Sandercock also was tabbed ACC Pitcher of the Week. In 7 innings pitched on the weekend, Sandercock lowered her ERA to a 1.41.
