This fu*king idiot is saying Urban classes are garbage BUT URBAN'S CLASSES ARE THE ONLY n*ggaS IN THE FIELD RIGHT NOW YOU fu*kING IDIOT. How are you gonna say all these classes recruited by Urban are bad but that's all of what the team your glorifying consist of? Your logic is retarded.
Nobody said his classes were terrible. Urbans 06,07, and 08 classes were nice. 09,10, and 11 were horrible or average at best. Tell me how many players are left on the UF roster from 2010 and 2011 classes dumb a.ss.

I pointed out all the solid to good players from those classes in my previous post you stupid as n*gga. Learn how to read you fu*king bi*ch a.ss n*gga. But since you can't comprehend let me break it down for your dumbass and then maybe you can understand.

By time Muschamp got UF those great classes that Florida brought in before 2009 those players gone.

Floyd did not play as much as freshman, Easley played very little Elam saw limited action. Muschamp and his staff developed these guys more than Meyer did.

Its a shame when people are FSU fans are hitting the props button and telling me I ain't got to go hard on yall like that. Saying that I'm owning the sh*t out of you

Florida beat us. EJ choked. The defense faded in the last 10 minutes. Plain and simple. But stop talkin like Urban's recruiting classes weren't a big reason as to why you were 11-2 this year. Sayin some of your top players were alright. There's my answer. Now let me know when you get that degree from UF so I can actually take you seriously...I'll wait...
n*gga what?! A degree?!! take you stupid a.ss on somewhere. You basing your argument on a degree.....

The ignorance of this idiot has no limitations. Since you probably flunked out of high school I go down each thing individually for you. Are you ready son.

1) When did I ever bring up 06,07 or 08 classes?

2) My point was this, you say 09, 10 and 11 were average/horrible classes yet THE fu*kING PLAYERS THAT WERE ON THE FIELD THIS SEASON CONSISTED OF THAT CLASS!!!!!!!!

You're an idiot because you can't even realize you are contradicting yourself, you praise the team you had on the field yet say the players were garbage, what sense does that make?

3) You can say that Will MuschUmp developed better than Urban but that was never the argument. The argument was what Will MuschUmp started with was 10x's better than what Jimbo started out with dumbass.

So your contradiction of an argument isn't even on topic.

It's much easier to develop a 5* Safety into a good player then it is to develop THREE 3* DE's into first round draft picks (I'll let you discover who did what)

Seminoles continue hitting the Carolinas

With the addition of the new coaches on staff, Florida State looks to be extending it recruiting reach back into the Carolinas.

Normally sticking to the states of Florida, Georgia and Alabama over the last couple of cycles, there is renewed interest in the states all up and down the East coast.

Darin Smalls (Summerville, S.C./Summerville) was the latest to grab an offer from the Seminoles, and it was one that caught him somewhat off guard.

"I was very surprised because I didn't think that I was going to get looked at by any Florida schools," the 5-foot-11 cornerback said. "They sent me a letter one week, and then the next week they offered me, so that was pretty cool."

New tight ends coach Billy Napier, once a member of the Clemson coaching staff, is leading the charge.

He was responsible for the offer, while he and Smalls are still building a relationship.

"We messaged a couple times on Facebook, and I talked to him a couple of times on the phone," Smalls said.

Now that Florida State has expressed its interest, Smalls returned it in kind by scheduling an unofficial visit to Tallahassee on Feb. 23.

Smalls has offers Clemson, Virginia Tech and South Carolina, but FSU is now right up with the rest of them.

"Yeah, definitely it puts them right in there," he said.

At the next level, Smalls is looking for a blend that suits him.

"I just want to go to a strong program with good academics," said Smalls.

Smalls said he is looking from an offer from Florida as well. He also admitted that he would like to play in the state of Florida if it turned out to be the right situation for him.

With national signing day now beyond us, NoleNation takes a closer look at the next crop of Seminoles.

Vitals: Athlete Levonte Whitfield, Orlando Fla,/Jones, 5-foot-9, 175 pounds.

Committed: Aug. 13, 2012.

ESPN.com grade: 85, four-star prospect.

ESPN.com rankings: No. 7 athlete in the country, No. 40 in the Southeast region, No. 20 in the state and No. 73 in the ESPN 150.

Picked Florida State over: Ohio State and Florida.

Levonte Whitfield
Athlete
2013
Signed: Florida State

Pos Rk Stars Grade Hometown
7
85 Orlando, FL
State of the position: Whitfield joins a deep group of wide receivers led by junior Rashad Greene. Kenny Shaw, Kelvin Benjamin, Greg Dent, Jarred Haggins, Christian Green and Marvin Bracy are all there, too. Coupled with the signing of Isaiah Jones and Jesus Wilson in the same class, Whitfield has plenty of guys around him. And Jimbo Fisher has a lot of options.

ESPN.com scouting report: Whitfield is an undersized receiver with excellent speed on the field to be a home run threat and make plays in space. But he is also a candidate to play cornerback on the next level. As a receiver, he beats defensive backs to the edge and consistently pulls away from defenders at the high school level. He does not show great strength on the field. He displays unique burst to get to top end speed and exhibits excellent change-of-direction ability. Not asked to do a great deal reading coverage as a receiver. Body catcher at times as a short route receiver, but displays the ability to jump and extend to win the jump ball. He also displays great separation on a consistent basis. Will need to develop as a route runner at the next level. He gets his touches primarily from swing passes, vertical routes and hand offs at the high school level. Playmaker with the ball in his hands, he can turn the short pass into a big play. Very good ability to cut at top speed and make defenders miss. Biggest negative is too much east/west running that he gets away with because he is faster than everyone he is matched up against. Needs to add strength to be a consistent blocker, but shows all the toughness needed. He shows ideal traits on film to be a slot receiver at the next level. Would also project as a high level corner at the next level. As a defensive back, he shows very good recognition skills and very good toughness. He puts all his body into hits and will need to add some mass to hold up at the next level. Shows very good ball skills and great quickness to play tight man-to-man coverage. He could also provide instant impact as a return man. Size is Whitfield's only real physical limitation, but he is very impressive physically.

Expected impact: It's going to be hard for Whitfield to get into the traditional three and four-wide receiver sets. Where he could play right away is on special teams and in designed packages. The only hold up there is that Bracy is a similar player, so a redshirt could be in the cards depending on how fall camp goes. But Fisher does but a premium on speed, so if he thinks he can get on the field and contribute, he will.

FSU after two more Tennesseans

Florida State is making its presence felt in middle Tennessee.

First, the Seminoles landed four-star cornerback Jalen Ramsey from Brentwood (Tenn.) Academy, stealing him from USC on national signing day. Now, thanks, in part, to Ramsey's signing, the Noles could be close to landing two more highly regarded prospects from the Nashville area.

Cornelius Elder
Running back
2013
Uncommitted: List

Pos Rk Stars Grade Hometown
17
83 Nashville, TN
Four-star running back Cornelius "Corn" Elder and 2015 cornerback Rico McGraw from Nashville (Tenn.) Ensworth said Florida State has recently started recruiting them. Elder, who will announce his college decision on Feb. 20, said he spent 30 minutes talking to Ramsey about the Seminoles on Tuesday. The two played together at Ensworth before Ramsey transferred following his sophomore season.

"I know him pretty well," the 5-foot-10, 170-pound Elder said. "He's been blowing my phone up…He's trying."

Elder chose not to sign with a school on Wednesday, national signing day. He said he wasn't ready to make a decision. Elder said he is primarily considering Georgia Tech, UCLA, Vanderbilt and Auburn, as well as a basketball scholarship from Purdue.

Elder has repeatedly said that basketball is his favorite sport. However, most believe he has more potential in football. Elder said he spoke to Florida State coaches on Tuesday evening.

"They're coming in the mix so we'll see how that goes," the nation's No. 203 prospect in the country and No. 2 prospect in Tennessee said.

Elder said recruiters have told him they'd hold a spot for him, specifically Florida State, UCLA and Georgia Tech. Elder visited Atlanta to see Tech's campus last week.

"It was good I liked it," he said. "Great school. Great campus. Great city. Everything is around Georgia Tech's campus. A good coaching staff and I bonded well with the players."

Elder visited Tech's campus last fall. This time around, he said he learned much more about the school.

"This time I got to sit down with the coaches and hang out with the players," Elder said. "I got to see more of the campus and see what's around the campus."

After his official visit to Georgia Tech, Elder went on a visit to Auburn to take where one of his former teammates is a walk-on for the Tigers. Elder has said he thinks he would be a good fit in first-year head coach Gus Malzahn's offensive system.

"It's a great coaching staff, great facilities," he said. "It was nice."

McGraw's recruitment kicked into high gear last summer when he received his first scholarship offer -- from Alabama. Since then, scholarship offers have continued to steadily come in. The 6-foot, 185-pound sophomore now has approximately a dozen scholarship offers. Florida State could be following suit.

"I really don't know much about them," McGraw said of the Noles. "They picked up Jalen so they're familiar with the players in this area. Hopefully they'll be around here soon."

McGraw isn't as close to Ramsey as Elder but the two defensive backs have talked. When asked if he thought Ramsey would try to recruit him to Tallahassee, McGraw said he wouldn’t be surprised if Ramsey did.

Florida State: 2014 prospects to watch

With members of the 2013 class already having faxed in their letters of intent, the focus turns to the Class of 2014. Here are five top juniors the Seminoles will place a priority on for the next cycle:
ILB Kain Daub (Jacksonville, Fla./Sandalwood)
As far as inside linebackers go, Daub is about how a coach would draw one up. At 6-foot-2, 240 pounds, he's already bigger than some Division I linebackers. The new defensive a.ssistants have helped to make an impression already, but Daub also has offers from Alabama, Arkansas, Auburn, Florida, LSU, Miami, Ohio State, South Carolina, Tennessee, Southern California and West Virginia.

[+] Enlarge
Sony MichelDavide De Pas/ESPN.comRB Sony Michel has been on the national scene for several years, and all of the nation's top programs are after him.
OT Damian Prince (Forestville, Md./Bishop McNamara)
At 6-7, 300 pounds, Prince looks ready to suit up for a college team today. His offer list suggests other teams think so too. Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Florida State, Michigan, North Carolina, Ohio State, South Carolina, Tennessee and USC already have offered, among others. Offensive tackle is a huge position of need for the Seminoles in 2014.

WR Ermon Lane (Homestead, Fla./Homestead Senior)
Likely to be one of, if not the, top receiver in the Class of 2014 from Florida, Lane is a major target if for no other reason than default. The 6-2, 175-pound Watch List member camped at Florida State over the summer. He has offers from Alabama, Arkansas, Clemson, Florida, Florida State, Miami and Pittsburgh, among others.

RB Sony Michel (Plantation, Fla./American Heritage)
Michel has been a well-known prospect since his freshman year. All the big guns are after him, including Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, LSU, Miami, Notre Dame and Wisconsin. The Seminoles were in good shape before Eddie Gran's departure but will have some ground to make up in all likelihood.

DE Justin Thornton (Prichard, Ala./Vigor)
Thornton has been identified early by defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt as a priority from his defensive end position. The 6-5, 225-pound ESPN Watch List member has offers from Alabama, Auburn, LSU and South Carolina, in addition to recent offers from Florida and USC. Thornton was on FSU's campus in early February.

2014 Recruiting Hot Board

There is no rest for the weary. The 2013 recruiting cycle may have just come to an end, but Florida State's staff is already hard at work for the 2014 class. Who are some of the prospects they are targeting? Find out in the first Warchant.com Hot Board for 2014, where we break down each position and highlight some names FSU expects to focus on in this recruiting cycle.


Quarterback
J.J. Cosentino
6-5/215
Central Catholic (Pittsburgh, Pa.)

This right hander was offered earlier this month by FSU a.ssistant coach Sal Sunseri, who has strong ties to the Central Catholic program, where his son Tate was the quarterback. Cosentino shows great touch on the post routes and his biggest strength is his poise in the pocket and mid range throws. Cosentino has confirmed that he will visit FSU for junior day this weekend. FSU was his first offer, but Penn State and Michigan State apparently are close to offering. South Florida, Virginia and NC State are also involved early on.



Others in the mix: D.J. Gillins, Justice Hansen, Tyler Harris, Deshaun Watson

Comments: Since the 'Noles decided not to take a quarterback for the 2013 class, it made it imperative that they focus hard on getting at least one quarterback in 2014. Two quarterbacks would not be ruled out, but for now it's safe to say one quarterback is a minimum. Keep in mind the board will likely expand or change once the new quarterback coach/offensive coordinator is announced.



Running back
Sony Michel
5-11/180
American Heritage (Plantation, Fla.)


Although many thought the departure of Eddie Gran would really destroy FSU's chances, it is still in play with Michel. He has several friends who just signed or are currently on the roster. He talks with Matthew Thomas, Jesus Wilson and visited FSU at least three times last year. Michel doesn't have any current leaders, but most close to him feel this one will be an FSU, Georgia and Miami battle. He grew up a Hurricane fan, but that won't influence his decision. One thing that hurts the 'Canes chances are that Michel had a close relationship with Terry Richardson, who recently left Miami to join the Jacksonville Jaguars' coaching staff. I'm told that the two position coaches at Miami, FSU departing (Richardson, Gran) has helped Georgia a great deal.

Kamryn Pettway
6-0/220
Prattville (Prattville, Ala.)
Video

Pettway is a candidate that would fit the running back/fullback position. He has very good wiggle to his game for a big back and has the power to run in any offense as a lead back. His biggest strengths would be his vision and quickness for a 210+ pounder. FSU is the leader at this stage and will visit for junior day this weekend. The 'Noles offered earlier this year. Pruitt has recruited him since he was a sophomore, so a good bond has developed.

Jonathan Vickers
6-0/205
North Florida Christian (Tallahassee, Fla.)



Vickers had a knee injury that sidelined him for much of 2012. Don't be surprised if FSU makes a run at this local talent, he is one that Pruitt has established a very good early bond with while Pruitt was at Alabama. According to NFC coach Robert Craft, Pruitt was one of the main reasons why Vickers was so high on the Crimson Tide.



Others in the mix: Dalvin Cook, Leonard Fournette, Jalen Hurd, Tony James, Derrell Scott, Stanley Williams

Comments: Look for the Seminoles to take at least two running backs and one that can be used as a fullback/running back. The Seminoles already have Joseph Yearby, a four-star back who is very firm in his decision. Look for FSU to go after bigger backs in this cycle.



WIDE RECEIVER
Ermon Lane
6-2/172
Homestead (Homestead, Fla.)
Video

After FSU came up short at wide receiver after Stacy Coley picked Miami, we expect Florida State to make a serious run at Lane, who attended the summer camp at Florida State last year. Lane, like Coley, grew up a fan of Miami but is open to leaving the area and even said at the end of the season that FSU and Alabama were the teams out front. However, the Canes will be a major factor with Lane we are told.

Artavis Scott
5-11/180
East Lake (Tarpon Springs, Fla.)
Video

I believe Scott will be the slot receiver FSU makes a major push for and should land. Scott is very close with Lawrence Dawsey and is more impressed with the FSU passing offense than the other in-state schools he's seen. In talking with Scott recently he's seemed to mention FSU more than any other school. He also plans to attend FSU Junior Day this weekend.



Others in the mix: Braxton Berrios, Jacob McCrary, Malachi Dupre, Josh Malone, Isaiah Ford

Comments: FSU brought in a solid class for 2013 that was focused more on speed and athletic ability. Look for the Seminoles to take one slot receiver and the rest are probably going to be bigger targets that can really tear up the middle of the field. In addition, I would not consider either C.J. Worton, JoJo Robinson as 'given' to be in this class by talent or by choice because they were both mainly recruited by James Coley. Robinson is the least likely of the two. Look for Florida State to take two or three receivers for this class. The good news is there are a ton of great receivers for the 2014 class.



Offensive Line
Andy Bauer
6-6/304
DeSmet (St. Louis, Mo.)
Video

Although he is from Missouri, his family is fans of Florida State. He visited FSU last year to get a closer look at the prorgram and campus. Expect Bauer to return for at least one more visit in the spring and attend a game or two during the season.

Garrett Brumfield
6-3/275
University Lab (Baton Rouge, La.)

Video

When we last spoke with Brumfield, he had three teams at the top of his list - FSU, Texas A&M and Florida in no particular order. However, during the Under Armour event Garret hinted that Florida might hold a slight advantage. After the National Signing Day, his mind changed again. FSU is the team he's talked about the most. Playing time is the biggest factor. Brumfield plans on visiting FSU for the spring game.

Mason Cole
6-5/275
East Lake (Tarpon Springs, Fla.)

Video

Last year at FSU's summer camp, Cole spent a ton of time working with Rick Trickett and felt comfortable with him. However, more teams have jumped into the picture. Michigan and Notre Dame both stand out more right now. But factors in FSU's favor include the fact that he grew up a FSU fan, his relationship with Trickett and he plans on visiting FSU several times this spring. So, look for FSU to move back up.

Corey Martinez
6-4/290
Tampa Catholic (Tampa, La.)

Video

Martinez is another top prospect in-state that the staff has liked for a while. Rick Trickett offered and the Seminoles were the first major in-state program to do so. With FSU's need on the line eclipsing both Florida and Miami, FSU should make a major push here. Martinez wants to make an early decision, but so far has not hinted any leaders.

Damian Prince
6-7/310
Bishop McNamara (Forestville, Md.)

Video

Prince is one of the top targets overall. Odell Haggins is is lead recruiter. Prince is friends with Ronald Darby and has even spoken with EJ Levenberry, so he is aware of Florida State. I hear from those close to Prince that FSU is a serious team to watch, if not the leader at this stage. Prince has also spoken with Rick Trickett a few times and he plans to attend the FSU spring game later this year.


Others in the mix: Alex Bookser, Orlando Brown, Jermaine Eluemunor, Reilly Gibbons, Brock Ruble, Sam Mustipher, Steven Moss, Will Richardson, Isaiah Wynn

Comments: There is no doubt the most important position year in and year out is the offensive line - in two years FSU has signed five prospects. So, there will be a high number of targets the staff will have their eye on. Offensive tackle will be the key and I would look for the 'Noles to sign four tackles and two guards for this class. At the very least, that's the goal for the 2014 class.



TIGHT END


Others in the mix: Kevin Crosby, Tyler Luatua

Comments: FSU added one tight end in the 2013 class and would like to add another as a receiving TE in this class. Moral Stephens could fit that role if he decides to be list as a tight end, but he's more of an H-back at this stage.



Defensive tackle
Andrew Brown
6-4/292
Oscar Smith (Chesapeake, Va.)

Video

Every year FSU a.ssistant coach Odell Haggins has targeted one of the highest prospects on the board and four straight years he's gotten his man. This year that guy will be Andrew Brown, who we are told is expected to take multiple visits to FSU in the spring and summer. Brown knows Ronald Darby, EJ Levenberry and 2014 five-star Quin Blanding (who is being recruited heavily by FSU), so FSU has some connections. Brown doesn't have a leader at this point, but FSU, Florida, Alabama and Virginia are teams that stand out. The 'Noles already have DeMarcus Christmas as a commitment and if the they could pull off Brown, that's another deadly DT combination.

Elisha Shaw
6-6/299
Tucker (Atlanta, Ga.)

Video

Shaw was one of the best defensive tackle and overall one of the most talented prospects at FSU's summer camp last year. He has established a very good relationship with Haggins and has mentioned FSU many times on his short list. Georgia, Alabama and FSU are teams that Shaw talks about the most even though he denies having any leaders right now. Shaw is expected to visit FSU soon, maybe as early as this weekend's junior day.



Others in the mix: Khairi Clark, Anthony Moten, Derrick Nnadi, Travonte Valentine (Florida)

Comments: FSU will most likely take two defensive tackles in 2014. Out of the others in the mix group, Nnadi would be the most likely for FSU to pull it off at this stage. However, keep your eyes on Valentine as he developed a very good bond with Odell Haggins at the FSU summer camp last year and even named the 'Noles the leader. We are also hearing that UF commitment is not solid. Moten at this stage appears to be a solid Cane lean, same could probably be said for Clark, but again it's early.



Defensive end
Lorenzo Carter
6-5/221
Norcross (Norcross, Ga.)

Video

Before the new coaching hires you would not have even considered Florida State a threat here for Carter because of the SEC powers like Georgia and Alabama But with the new staff at FSU have several factors in their favor. The most important would be Charles Kelly, whose strongest area is at Norcross. In addition, Sal Sunseri has already dropped by the school a few times to show his face. Look for Carter to attend a FSU summer camp later this year, as well as one more visit in the spring.

Da'Shawn Hand
6-4/245
Woodbridge Senior (Woordbridge, Va.)

Hand will be the top DE prospect on the board for the Seminoles. Currently FSU is not listed in the top five, but we expect that to change with his connections to E.J. Levenberry and Sal Sunseri. In addition, Haggins has also established an early bond with the Hand family. Expect him to probably check FSU out this spring.

Justin Thornton
6-5/215
Vigor (Prichard, Ala.)


Thornton visited FSU a few weeks ago and most consider this to be a Florida/FSU battle. Thornton has a two year relationship with Jeremy Pruitt. He was actually close to committing to the 'Noles before his dream school growing up Florida offered recently. However, FSU is the school with the relationships and that could be the difference. FSU currently offers the better chance to see the field early at this stage. Thornton will likely attend the FSU spring game as well as attend several games this year.



Others in the mix: Kendall Baker, Jalyn Holmes, Blake McClain, Chad Thomas, Denzel Ware, Andrew Williams

Comments: FSU filled the need at this position after landing three in last year's class and will need that same kind of production for 2014. Denzel Ware decommitted from the Seminoles but we still hear he is heavily involved with FSU, especially Jeremy Pruitt. Chad Thomas is also another to watch here. He's pretty close to Matt Thomas and likely that's working in favor of the 'Noles.



Linebacker
Kain Daub
6-3/249
Sandalwood (Jacksonville, Fla.)

Video

Without question the top overall uncommitted target on the board for the 'Noles is Daub, who has visited FSU twice in the past three weeks. His close friend DeMarcus Walker is an early enrollee at Florida State. But an even bigger shift of momentum would be that Jeremy Pruitt has given FSU a solid advantage, enough to the point we hear Daub was already close to committing. Daub also wants to follow the same plan as his friend Walker and enroll early. LSU, FSU and Florida seemed to be the teams linked with Daub, but the Seminoles clearly hold the advantage right now.

Christian Miller
6-4/200
Spring Valley (Columbia, SC.)

Video

If the Noles are going to take another outside linebacker for this class, don't be surprised if Miller is that guy. He is close friends former FSU standouts Michael and Peter Boulware. He has kept a close eye on FSU a lot in the past two years. Miller is expected to visit FSU for this weekend's junior day and also attend several games this year. Look for this to be an Alabama/FSU battle.



Others in the mix: Tre Williams, Kevin Mouhon, Shaun Dion Hamilton, Rashaan Evans, Jacob Pugh, Chase Winovich

Comments: After landing five linebackers last year, FSU would like to bring in two linebackers for this class, maybe an outside shot at three. Rivals 250 watch list member Delvin Purifoy is a commitment and he is an inside linebacker.



Safety
Quin Blanding
6-2/196
Bayside (Virginia Beach, Va.)

Video

Blanding will be among the most coveted on the board. He could help with the rest of the class and be that bell cow to help recruit, one that FSU seems to have nearly every year. Blanding is good friends with Jalen Tabor and Da'Shawn Hand, among others, so his influence alone would be big. It's a Virginia/FSU battle here and we still feel FSU is sitting in solid position. He plans to visit FSU for either this weekend's junior day or shortly thereafter. Blanding wants to make a decision before the start of his senior season.

Montae Nicholson
6-2/200
Gateway (Monroeville, Aa.)

Video

This is one of the reasons Sal Sunseri was brought in - his experience as a coach and his recruiting along the East Coast. Nicholson likes the attacking and aggressive style of FSU football, but wants to see more of what FSU has to offer during a visit. That should likely take place in March or for the FSU spring game.



Others in the mix: Trey Marshall, Todd Kelly, Daejuan Funderburk, T.J. Harrell, Cortez McDowell, Deion Singleton, Tony Fields

Comments: While FSU certainly has players that can fill the position with John Franklin or Nate Andrews, the 'Noles want to get a few players that are specifically safety prospects for this class (Lamarcus Joyner and Terrance Brooks both graduate after 2013). Therefore look for the Seminoles to take two prospects at the most for the safety position.
