Miami signed DL Jacoby Briscoe out of Louisiana (Carencro HS) this year, and Florida State has offered a couple of in-state '13 prospects (Rickey Jefferson and Ryan Hoefeld). The Hurricanes and Seminoles are the current top two for John Curtis Christian (River Ridge, La.) '14 CB Prine Lewis, who - coincidentally - will face the Sunshine State's defending 8A state champ (Tampa Plant) on Sept 7th.

Are we there yet?
The Seminoles will essentially be looking for a do-over in their return to glory, which took a sudden detour in the wrong direction a year ago. Pegged as the program's long-awaited breakthrough following a decade of mediocrity, Florida State went a disappointing 9-4, failing to even capture the ACC Atlantic Division. However, with as many as 18 starters back...
A few days ago, Ryan Hoefeld outlined his plans for July. The 6-3, 265-pounder, who simply destroys anything in his path, initially was going to camp with TCU before choosing between four schools (including Florida State). The Brother Martin-New Orleans offensive lineman had a change of heart today, however, and decided he will play college football for the Seminoles. Details coming.
Florida State has a rich tradition at the cornerback position and both projected starters are likely to be drafted next April, perhaps as high as the top two rounds. There will be an opportunity for prospects in the 2013 class to make an early impact. We take a look at this spot and the likely candidates to end up in this class.
After signing seven prep offensive linemen in the 2011 class, Florida State did not sign any this year. The position is one of need for '13, and FSU added its third verbal commitment Monday with Brandon Hoefeld. We take a look at how this class is taking shape along the O-line.
