Damn Damn DAAAAAAAMMMMMM! This damn team soft af. No other way to put it. Kelly has got to do better w/ in game adjustments. Stop waiting til 1/2 time. The paly calling on D was horrible. SG needs to transfer & take JJ w/ him. The o line still can't block neither can the WR's. I don't wanna hear that their young sh!t! It's the last game so everybody is seasoned. I've seen high school games coached better than this on both sides.

Happy new year
Y'all had a terrible season, coach got fired, y'all hired a coach who isn't gonna have a major impact on your program and y'all lost your bowl game as well. So, go on some where with that! When y'all win double digits in a season, win the division and the conference, make a New Years six bowl, then you can talk or call me. Hasn't happened in 12 years! Plus y'all ain't beat us in 6 years. Think about that!

Potential verbals at Army Bowl highlight recruiting storylines

Players begin arriving in Texas for the 16th annual U.S. Army All-American Bowl on Sunday in preparation for the game on Jan. 9.

We’re also expecting a lot of fireworks on the recruiting trail as prospects announce their verbal commitment during the game.

• The nation’s No. 1 tight end Isaac Nauta will let it be known where he’s headed to school. The five-star recruit and No. 9 player in the country out of Bradenton (Fla.) IMG Academy is expected to pick Georgia when looking at the 247Sports Crystal Ball.
The Bulldogs have the nation’s No 13 recruiting class heading in Army Bowl week including four that are slated to play in the game including five-star quarterback Jacob Eason, defensive tackle Julian Rochester, offensive tackle Ben Cleveland and linebacker Jaleel Laguins.

• Many of the nation’s top receivers could come off the board.

Two of California’s best are very much expected to announce in Javon McKinley and Dylan Crawford. Both also appear to be Midwest bound.

Oregon and Washington are the biggest threats to Notre Dame for McKinley.

While the 247Sports Crystal Ball is a heavy lean towards Michigan State for Donnie Corley, Ohio State could receive good news for the Detroit (Mich.) King standout.

It really could be a special day for the Buckeyes if Corley were to choose OSU and Binjimen Victor were to go ahead and announce as well. Florida is the 247Sports Crystal Ball favorite for Victor but Ohio State is right there for him as well.

Ohio State has the nation’s top-ranked recruiting class, and they will have a game-high six commits in Columbus working on these recruits in Jonathon Cooper, Jake Hausmann, Austin Mack, Michael Jordan, Demario McCall and Drue Chrisman.

The Spartans have four Army All-Americans in Josh King, Cameron Chambers, Brandon Randle and Demetric Vance, who is one of Corley’s best friends.

• A couple high-profile cornerbacks could also make their decision inside the Alamo Dome in Trayvon Mullen and Lavert Hill.
Mullen is a teammate of Victor’s out of Pompano Beach (Fla.) Coconut Creek. Hill is a teammate of Corley’s at King.

LSU and Florida State are duking it out for Mullen.

Hill and Corley have openly discussed announcing together and the Army Bowl stage is one they’re strongly considering. Michigan looks tough to beat for Hill, who’s older brother Delano is a starter in the Wolverines secondary. Michigan State has tightened things up down the stretch and Hill has also mentioned wanting to take all of his visits.

• Missouri City (Texas) Elkins four-star defensive tackle Ross Blacklock could announce with Texas A&M as the 247Sports Crystal Ball favorite, however he has January officials scheduled to TCU and LSU.

• Quick hitters on the rest of the uncommitted prospects playing in the Army Bowl.

- Georgia, Alabama, Auburn, Mississippi State and Tennessee are battling for the five-star defensive tackle Derrick Brown, with the Bulldogs holding all 28 247Sports Crystal Ball forecasts for the Buford (Ga.) Lanier standout.

- When Torrance (Calif.) North five-star linebacker Mique Juarez decommitted from USC everyone penciled him in with UCLA. However Oklahoma, Ole Miss and Washington are among those trying to change Juarez’s mind. It wouldn’t be surprising if Juarez decided to announce a decision at the Army Bowl.

- Alabama, Georgia and Tennessee are duking it out for five-star athlete Mecole Hardman Jr. with the Bulldogs winning on the 247Sports Crystal Ball for the Elberton (Ga.) Elbert County star.

- Oklahoma owns all 21 247Sports Crystal Ball forecasts for five-star linebacker Caleb Kelly with Notre Dame the likely top challenger for the Fresno (Calif.) Clovis West blue-chipper. Oregon is also in play.

- Alabama, Mississippi State, Ole Miss and Tennessee make up the top four for Macon (Miss.) Noxubee County Top50 defensive end Jeffery Simmons.

- USC remains the heavy 247Sports Crystal Ball favorite to ultimately land Top50 athlete Jack Jones out of Long Beach (Calif.) Poly. Others under consideration include Texas A&M, Arizona State and UCLA.

- Concord (Calif.) De La Salle athlete Devin Asiasi is one of the more intriguing recruiting battles down the stretch with UCLA and Washington being two he’s strongly considering.

- Alabama, LSU, Tennessee, Georgia, Miami and Ohio State are among those still in play for Suwanee (Ga.) Peachtree Ridge Top100 safety Nigel Warrior, with the Vols holding a slim 247Sports Crystal Ball advantage over Alabama and Georgia.

- It ultimately will be Michigan or Washington for Los Angeles (Calif.) Loyola Top100 cornerback David Long, who recently decommitted from Stanford. Could go either way heading into the final month.

- Florida has emerged as the 247Sports Crystal Ball favorite for Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) American Heritage Top100 defensive end Brian Buns down the stretch. Georgia was at one time the trendy pick and remains very much in play as does Florida State.

- Penn State is trending with Saint Clairsville (Ohio) High Top100 linebacker Brendan Ferns who is also strongly considering West Virginia, where his older brother plays just a short drive away from home and Notre Dame.

- Warner Robins (Ga.) High Top247 athlete Marquez Callaway has January officials scheduled with Tennessee, Mississippi State and Ole Miss.

- Four schools look to have the best shot in landing Top100 athlete Jordan Fuller out of Old Tappan (N.J.) Northern Valley Regional in Michigan, Notre Dame, Ohio State and Penn State. Fuller has already taken his official to South Bend with the other three likely to get trips in January. A fifth program will also get an official before Signing Day.

- Oklahoma is the 247Sports Crystal Ball favorite for the No. 1 recruit in the state in Oklahoma City John Marshall Top247 offensive tackle Tramonda Moore with Oklahoma State, Alabama and UCLA a few others he’s strongly considering.

- Former Miami Top247 receiver commit Ahmmon Richards is still considering the Hurricanes along with Auburn, Alabama and Tennessee. The Tigers got an official in December with the other three slated for January.

- Clemson is the 247Sports Crystal Ball favorite over South Carolina for North Charleston (S.C.) Fort Dorchester Top247 offensive guard John Simpson.

- Nebraska and Iowa look like the top contenders for Top247 offensive tackle Matt Farniok out of Sioux Falls (S.D.) Washington, with Michigan State and Florida State rounding out his top four. Only the Huskers have gotten an official visit thus far.

- Katy (Texas) High four-star running back Kyle Porter has interest in Arkansas, Oregon, TCU, Texas and Wisconsin heading into the Army Bowl.

- Pompano Beach (Fla.) Coconut Creek cornerback Malek Young’s January official visits are set for Miami, Louisville and Clemson, with Auburn and Ohio State two others he’s high on.

2017 DE Jarez Parks recaps last UF visit

ORLANDO — Sebastian (Fla.) River Top247 defensive end Jarez Parks visited Florida for the Gators game against Florida State. The 6-foot-5, 255-pound prospect was impressed with what he saw in the Swamp that night.

“It was a great atmosphere, a great game. I enjoyed watching both teams. It’s definitely a lot to consider.”

The Gators are a team Parks likes.

“It seems like a great program,” Parks said of Florida. “I haven’t really looked into it like you would think yet.”

Florida State is also in the mix for Parks.

“They seem like a pretty well rounded defensive school. I don’t know about them as people want me to.”

Parks does not have any leaders at this time. However, he knows the main thing he wants from the program of his choice.

“A great education. That’s the main I’m going to college for, a great education.”

The 247Sports Composite, an industry generated average, currently ranks Parks as the nation’s No. 21 overall prospect in 2017.

Decisions, decisions: FSU's juniors contemplating future

ATLANTA -- Florida State's 2016 season could be shaped by the decisions of juniors who are eligible for the NFL Draft -- cornerback Jalen Ramsey, defensive end DeMarcus Walker and place-kicker Roberto Aguayo said Thursday afternoon that they have not yet decided whether to return to FSU or enter the draft a year early.

Ramsey is considered a top-10, and potentially top-5 pick, by NFL draft analysts if he declares early. He had 52 tackles in 2015, including nine tackles on Thursday in the loss to Houston.

"That's something I'll talk to my family about and coach (Jimbo) Fisher about before I let anyone else know," Ramsey said.

Junior defensive end DeMarcus Walker, who had 58 tackles and 10.5 sacks, has not reached an NFL decision.

"No, I have not," Walker said. "I am supposed to meet with Coach (Brad) Lawing and Coach Jimbo some time soon."

Walker says he will then talk it over with his mother before reaching a final decision.

"There is always room for improvement," Walker said. "I feel like there are some things that we need to get better as a team. The talent is good."

Walker was asked what FSU's goals are for 2016, and he responded: "If I come back next season, I'll tell you then."

Aguayo made 21 of 26 field-goal attempts in his junior season and was named a first-team All-American for a third straight season.

"Not yet," Aguayo said. "I wasn't focusing on that coming into the game. Now that it's over, I'll have time to think about that."

Aguayo said he would discuss the decision with FSU's coaches and family.

"Definitely talk to coach Fisher, sit down with my family and see what we should do," Aguayo said. "We'll go from there."

FSU has signed two kickers who will join the roster in 2016. Ricky Aguayo will enroll early, and Logan Tyler will arrive in the summer.

Semper Fidelis Bowl: East Day Two Top Performers

FULLERTON, Calif. -- The Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl East team started off slow on day two, but really cranked up the intensity at the end.

Ron Johnson (Camden, N.J./Camden) was easily the most dominating player on the second day of practice.

The four-star Michigan commitment could not be blocked at the line of scrimmage, firing off the ball and using his raw strength to explode on contact. At 6-foot-4, 230-pounds, Johnson is lean, but on Thursday he showed the upper body strength is already there to throw blockers to the wayside.

Johnson had back-to-back sacks twice, and the future Wolverine delivered several pops on running backs in the backfield as well. Coaches were raving about his performance on Day two, and rightfully so.

1.Zechariah McPhearson: The secondary had a much better day Thursday, and McPhearson was a big reason why. The Penn State commitment locked down his side, using his combination of long arms, short-area quickness, and fluid hips to close on balls in the air. There are really no holes in McPhearson's game - he has the recovery speed, size, and is technically sound at this stage. He also had some work returning punts as well and looked very comfortable in that area.

2. Caleb Roddy: Another great day for the LSU commitment. While Roddy is raw technically at this stage and appeared to be freelancing a bit, he was simply too active to ignore. He can power rush or win with quickness, and when he was focused his made his presence felt in the offensive backfield. If Ed Orgeron can hone him in and polish his hand use, Roddy can be a versatile player capable of playing multiple positions on the defensive line.

3. Koby Quansah: The Duke commitment arrived too late to participate in day one, but Quansah made up for lost time on Thursday. The 6-foot-1, 215-pound linebacker flew from sideline to sideline, exploding on the ball carrier. He attacked the correct gaps and did well in traffic. Sometimes he had issues shedding blocks in time to make a negative play, but his frame should allow him to increase his upper body strength without sacrificing the quickness that allows him to play aggressively.

4. Bricen Garner: Garner looked outstanding at free safety Thursday, stepping up from a mixed performance on Day 1. The Pitt commitment flowed to the football, showed good ball skills and actually held his own while covering in the slot. Once he fills out, the Panthers could have a true steal in Garner because of his size and play recognition skills.

5. Khaleke Hudson: Hudson would have been higher on this list, but his day on defense was cut short. More on that later. But the uncommitted prospect looked very fluid in coverage Thursday, picking a ball off and shutting down several other plays. The Crystal Ball is split 50/50 between Penn State and West Virginia, and either program would be getting an extremely versatile athlete.

1. Amir Rasul: On a day when the offense, for the most part, got it handed to them consistently, Rasul was still tough to contain. The Seminoles commitment is just too slippery to get squared up on, and had players telling each other that "Rasul is that dude" as they rotated on and off the field. And that is not to say Rasul shied away from contact - he took on defenders head on and drove several players back as well.

2. Tavares Chase: Chase is not ranked among the top five or even top eight wideouts in Florida this cycle, but few players in the country can match his innate ability to get open. The Clemson commitment excels at short routes outside, where he can make the cornerback miss and get extra yards, but he also showed some ability in the slot as a deep threat Thursday. For a 6-foot-2, 185-pound player, Chase really moves more like a Sam Bruce, which is why he has such great success finding holes in coverage.

3. Logan Byrd: There was not a lot of time to throw during the full team practice, but Byrd made the most of the passes where he had adequate protection. Earlier in the day, Byrd really came out strong, making the most throws of the three quarterbacks and displaying the best pure arm talent on the East. The Tar Heels commitment has the type of release that major programs look for.

4. Sean Pollard: It was a long day for the East offensive line, but Pollard once again held his own. The Clemson commitment is physical and athletic enough to handle a multitude of pass-rush moves, but his pad level took a hit Thursday. The coaches spent time working with him on his hips, something the Tigers' coaching staff needs to continue doing in order to maximize his raw, physical tools.

5. Khaleke Hudson: That's right, Hudson spent time at running back as well Thursday and did very well. He picked up the offense quickly and did very well. The 5-foot-11, 200-pound athlete adjusted quickly to his dual roles, and the coaches called his performance "special." Expect him to spend time on both sides of the ball in the game.


Byrd was the most complete performer on Day 2, but Oklahoma commitment Austin Kendall and Spartans commitment Messiah deWeaver were not far behind. Each had their moments.

DeWeaver appeared to be the most effective runner, looking very effective on the read-option. He might not be a true dual-threat, but he is an adequate runner and should be able to extend plays with his legs when needed. Kendall had some issues with the deep ball Thursday, but he also did a great job rolling out and making accurate throws on the run outside. He consistently set his feet, and it showed.

Running Back

West Virginia commitment Martell Pettaway went down with a hip injury Thursday, and his status for the game Sunday is currently unknown. Rasul was extremely touch to catch, but Hudson also showed impressive athleticism out of the backfield.

Wide Receiver/Tight End

The offense was unable to push the field much Thursday, because of the pass rush and because of the wind. One thing Diondre Overton did a better job of on Thursday is his route running. Overton came in nursing some injuries, but appears to be getting more comfortable on the field. Similarly, uncommitted wideout Darion Anderson continues to really shine as a playmaker who can make defenders miss and win the jump ball.

Offensive Line

For the most part, this group really struggled on Thursday. Georgia Southern commitment Drew Wilson did great on the stretch plays and quick screens, displaying great lateral movement. Duke commitment Robert Kraeling flashes some development potential at offensive tackle, and when he got his hands on the defender he was able to deliver a solid strike.

Defensive Line

After a quiet day Wednesday, Notre Dame commitment Khalid Kareem spent some time in the backfield Thursday, bouncing back by consistently shedding blockers and redirecting them into the running lanes. He set the edge well too. Uncommitted defensive tackle Kobe Jones was tough to stop again, using swim moves to repeatedly beat the blocker in front of him. The defense being installed is a basic one, so Jones saw a lot of double teams as the day went on.


Notre Dame commitment Jamir Jones looked very comfortable at will linebacker, using his raw athleticism to close on the ball carrier. Once he came down and blew up a guard to make a tackle on the running back at the line of scrimmage. Penn State commitment Cameron Brown was solid once again, coming down with an impressive interception in coverage.

Defensive Back

Mississippi State commitment C.J. Morgan-Walker had another solid day in coverage. He really ran well in transition, showcasing arguably the best backpedal of anyone on the East team. He's a confident cover corner and takes great angles in coverage.

James envisions making even more plays in 2016

ATLANTA – Derwin James’ season was one of the best ever by a Florida State freshman.

So he’s appropriately satisfied with how he has played. But he also sees room for improvement.

“I think I got off to a pretty good start,” James said. “I’m looking to come out next year and make more plays for my team, to put us in a better position.”

James was often in a position to help FSU in 2015. He had a team-leading 14 tackles in FSU’s 38-24 loss to Houston, including a sack and a pass break-up.

He didn’t play like a freshman on Thursday. James flew to the ball and delivered punishing tackles. And he was there when defenders in front of him missed their a.ssignment.

James took the loss to Houston hard, as he was one of the underclassmen who wanted to send the seniors off with win No. 50.

“I think I’m more disappointed about that than them,” James said. “I wanted to send them out with a bang. Ever since I got here, they looked out for me. I felt like I could have made more plays to help us get this win. I’m more disappointed than them.”

Thursday was a disappointing end for FSU. But it also showed the promise of some of the younger players, and James was one of them.

His position may be safety, but James showed the ability to play deep, down in the box or rush the passer. His versatility has proven invaluable.

James probably could have started earlier in the year, but he needed time to get a better handle on the defense and adapt to the speed of the college game.

“In high school I got away with just playing off athleticism,” James said. “In college, everybody is good. Every opponent you face, anybody can beat you at any moment.”

By midseason, James was ready. And FSU needed him. With Trey Marshall out for the year due to an arm injury, and Nate Andrews slowed by hand and knee injuries, James was able to step in and start against Louisville.

He has started every game since and never looked back. James’ 91 tackles is the third highest total by an FSU freshman all-time, and the most by a freshman defensive back. Linebacker Marvin Jones had 133 in 1990 and defensive tackle Ron Simmons had 128 in 1977.

“I made a lot of plays but I left a lot of plays out there, too,” James said. “That just comes with experience. Each week I’m learning more.”

Just do what I do, ignore him & he'll eventually go away to swim in the filth that his team has left behind.

No. 1 recruit Rashan Gary reveals his decision date and the top teams still in the mix.

Rashan Gary is a 6-foot-5, 293-pound defensive tackle that can anchor a defensive line and single-handedly wreak havoc on an offense. He's an explosive, athletic freak with a quick first step and fast, strong hands.

That's why he's ranked as the No. 1 player in the entire country (per 247Sports Composite), and it's also why he's one of the most highly sought after recruits.

With January approaching, and National Signing Day on Feb. 3, Gary is doing his due diligence to determine which program is the best fit for his future. He has one official visit left to schedule and is eyeing several schools in the South.

According to ESPN recruiting analyst Tom VanHeeran, Gary told reporters at the Under Armour All-America Game media session that he's considering visiting Clemson, Florida, Florida State, Georgia or LSU.

Michigan is currently considered by many to be the frontrunner for his services, but Gary didn't tip his hat on which school he has leading. He did, however, name his top teams, which include Auburn, Clemson, Georgia, LSU, Ole Miss and USC.

The Gators and Seminoles are in the mix but appear to be long shots to land the New Jersey prospect. However, an official visit could go a long way toward swaying Gary.

Following the hiring of defensive coordinator Greg Schiano, Ohio State tried to jump back into the picture, but the Buckeyes appear to be on the outside looking in.

Gary plans to announce his decision on National Signing Day.

5-star Auburn commit hearing form others

Five-star offensive tackle and Auburn commit Calvin Ashley, a 2017 prospect from Orlando (Fla.) Dr. Phillips, was in attendance for the Under Armour Future 50 event on Thursday.

The 6-foot-7, 307-pound tackle spoke with 247Sports’ Luke Stampini updating his status with the Tigers, as well as other programs he’s hearing from.

“I’m 100 percent,” Ashley said of his commitment status. “(Auburn) has really nice coaches; it’s a nice place to be, nice facilities … I love it.”

Ashley committed to Auburn last May over Florida State and Florida, among others. He talked about what he expects from the Tigers going forward.

“They’ll have a pretty good season next year,” Ashley said. “I mean this year there were just ups and downs, but next year it’ll be a pretty good season.”

Ashley is consistently hearing from other programs despite his commitment status.

“Florida State, Florida, Alabama, Ole Miss … it’s a lot of schools,” Ashley said.

The five-star tackle visited Gainesville for the FAU game in November. He talked about the experience.

“It was an ok game; it was ugly,” Ashley said. “They got the W, so it was a pretty good visit.

“Coach (Jim McElwain), they really want me there. They’re struggling on the offensive line right now, and that’s a big part of my decision.”

Ashley went on to talk about the other instate program coming after him – Florida State.

“I have a really good relationship with Florida State and the coaches and the players,” Ashley said. “I have some family from Tallahassee, it’s a nice coaching staff and it’s a pretty good school also.”

The Florida native talked about the message from Alabama offensive line coach Mario Cristobal.

“His message is that they improve on offensive linemen a lot,” Ashley said. “They send them to the collegiate level and NFL level, so I mean it’s pretty good for offensive linemen.

“I’m going to Alabama in January on the 15th or 16th,” Ashley said. “I just want to look at the facilities – I’ve never been there before – I want to check around the school and see how nice it is.”

that game left my stomach in knots but to hell with it. gotta respect houston on that one. they played at 110%.

i actually love how we didnt quit. our defense was the best you could hope for and more. when the offense gives away 5 turnovers, your guaranteed to lose.

im not too mad at the offense either. oline loved gettin butt humped at 1st, but that halftime speech musta reminded them they like girls cause they showed up 2nd half. mcguire gettin hurt changed the game honestly. if hes healthy i think we win. came all the way back to within 7 with a boot and 5 turnovers!!!!

keep ya heads up family. and i know yall were right there smilin with me watchin florida get mopped 41-7!! LOL
