FLORIDA STATE — There has been a lot of buzz around the recruiting world and specifically around offensive coordinator Alex Atkins after landing 4-star Lucas Simmons earlier last week. Trey Cunningham shined for Team USA, former basketball stars hit the spotlight, and more baseball coaching additions are on the horizon.

Let's dive in:


In case you missed it, offensive lineman Dillan Gibbons alongside quarterback Jordan Travis started a GoFundMe for fellow teammate Greedy Vance to help his family restore their home after it was destroyed by Hurricane Ida.

Renovations are scheduled for Doak Campbell in August and the plan is to update the press box. Retired jersey numbers, championships, bowl games, and all Americans will all be featured alongside legendary head coach Bobby Bowden’s name to mark his legacy and the achievements that FSU has accomplished over the years.

Throwback to an amazing night:

One of the major plus sides of this offseason is the amount of talent that Alex Atkins has brought in. NoleThruandThru brought up an interesting argument about his recruiting chops and posed the question Is Alex Atkins FSU’s best recruiter of the post-Bobby Bowden era?

Here’s the list of signees Alex Atkins has reeled in since 2020, all of whom he served as the primary recruiter for: Julian Armella, Antavious Woody (“Tae”), Jaylen Early, Rod Orr, Qae’shon Sapp, Daughtry Richardson, Robert Scott, Jr., Bryson Estes, and Kanaya Charlton.

This cycle, he’s landed Rod Kearney and Lucas Simmons as a primary, and is the secondary recruiter for Darren Lawrence (“Goldie”).

New baseball head coach Link Jarrett continues to pull from his previous staff at Notre Dame by adding pitching coach Chuck Ristano to join FSU Baseball’s coaching staff.

Congratulations to Parker Messick being selected 54th overall in the 2022 draft:

Women’s soccer announced their 2022 schedule over the weekend. The first season under new head coach Brian Pensky will come filled with defensive matchups.

FSU has lost 3 big names from the roster, Emily Madril, Kirsten Pavlisko and Yujie Zhao, which according to our resident soccer expert Prince Akeem Joeffer has made the chances of a repeat much more difficult. But with the talent still present, the Seminoles should be able to moderately withstand those departures.

Congratulations to Maddie Anderson on winning her first International Pro Gold Medal at the Ciro Marina Futures in Italy:

Track and Field star Trey Cunningham won the silver medal in the 110m at the World Athletics Championships representing The Seminoles and Team USA.
