Noles have highest-ranked 2018 commit

Among the nation's top juniors who have already committed to schools, nobody is ranked higher than Florida State commit Justin Watkins in the ESPN Junior 300. See full rankings

Maturity, opportunity and necessity all played a role in Demarcus Walker's emergence as a junior in 2015. Another reason? Yoga. The Florida State senior took it last summer and it increased his flexibility. He finished with a career-high 10.5 sacks, and Walker said he's taking yoga again this summer.

Five-star recruits aren't above a push-up punishment. Dalvin Cook (pointing) and Travis Rudolph sent freshman cornerback Levonta Taylor to the Florida State turf after he was part of the losing team in tug-of-war.

If tug-of-war is any indication, the Florida State offensive line will be much better in 2016. Flawless victory from the group in front of Jimbo Fisher (with some help from others).

Deshaun Watson and Dalvin Cook, who each received first-place Heisman votes in 2015, were not unanimous preseason All-ACC picks. Going into the season they are clearly the favorites for the conference's player of the year. Maybe there will be an ACC QB and two RBs better than those two, but it's hard to justify leaving them off preseason ballots.

Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher's offense is considered one of the more complex, and he gave us a taste Tuesday. Fisher drew up one of his favorite plays, and there were route adjustments for each receiver based on coverages and open space. It's a lot to process in a play designed to attack several coverages.

Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher said he hasn't put a timetable on when he will name a starting quarterback between Sean Maguire and Deondre Francois but has an idea about when he wants to know. "Ten days out we'll start understanding who we're going to start or which way we're going," Fisher said. Maguire and Francois will get the majority reps once fall practice opens next week.
