Cory Helms was one of the committed players at the Wake Forest-North Carolina game on Saturday. The 6-foot-4, 290-pound center, who committed to the Demon Deacons in early June, plays at Milton (Ga.) High School and traveled to Winston-Salem after his team's game on Friday night.
BEST OF MAXIM
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. Chris Thompson is trying to treat this week as he would any other game week. Except he cant.
Thompson was FSUs star tailback in 2010, rushing for a team-leading 845 yards. But his junior season was halted just five games in, as he broke two vertebrae in his back in the first quarter at Wake Forest.
Just facing them after my injury, its a pretty emotional time...
Two of Wake Forest's top targets play at Seminole Ridge (Fla.) High School, the once-committed Kyle Shortridge and Rayfield Dixon. Dixon, a 6-foot-3, 203-pound outside linebacker, was offered by the Demon Deacon staff in May and has them listed among his favorites, but that may no longer be the case after he was unable to make a trip to Winston-Salem last weekend.
Florida State’s real season starts with tomorrow’s game against recent nemesis Wake Forest, a game that I honestly do not expect to be especially competitive. Thanks to West Virginia, FSU comes into the game off two FCS teams and chomping at the bit to play legitimate competition, while Wake Forest is a bit banged up after a narrow win over North Carolina.
