Wrapping up the weekend for Seminole Nation, now that that cringe is over, there were some commitments, visits in football, and track and field star Trey Cunningham is still earning top-notch awards. Devin Vassell made history and the crew tackled some interesting topics surrounding the program. Let's dive in.
