Bracy named ACC Men's Indoor T&F Performer of the Week honor

ACC release:

Florida State freshman sprinter Marvin Bracy has been named the Atlantic Coast Conference Men’s Indoor Track and Field Performer of the Week for the second time this season, while Clemson weight-thrower Brittney Waller earned Women’s Performer of the Week honors.

In just his second meet of the season, Bracy captured the 60-meter title, winning in an NCAA-leading and FSU school record time of 6.54 seconds in the Tyson Invitational at Fayetteville, Ark. The two-sport athlete from Orlando, Fla., is undefeated through six rounds of 60-meter competition this season and has run the fastest time among NCAA athletes in three of six races this year. Not only is his the fastest NCAA time in 2013, it ranks tied for the United State lead (with 2012 Olympian Mike Rogers) and ranks fourth in the world this year. Bracy edged FSU junior teammate Dentarius Locke, who ran a time of 6.56 in the final. Locke’s time was the NCAA’s second-fastest this season.

Clemson’s Waller broke her own school record in the weight throw by hitting a monumental mark of 73-2 (22.30 meters) to win the event at Virginia Tech Elite over the weekend. Waller’s mark is second-best in the nation this season and ranks among the best women’s weight throws in ACC history. The Greenville, S.C. native fouled on four of her six throws, but of her two legal attempts, one exploded for a mark of 73-2. Her previous best of 69-9 was set last week at the Armory Collegiate Invitational.

Louisiana OL talks FSU offer, more

The Texas Longhorns signed one of the top offensive line classes in the nation in 2013. If the early reports on the class of 2014 are any indication, offensive line coach Stacy Searels still has his eyes set on going anywhere and everywhere to find the best.


Joseph Paul says he rooted for Texas and Texas A&M when he lived in Texas for a short time after Hurricane Katrina.

At St. Augustine High in New Orleans, the prospect that receives the most attention, and for good reason, is five-star running back Leonard Fournette (New Orleans, La./St. Augustine). Joining the nation's No. 2 prospect in the junior class at the New Orleans power is offensive guard prospect Joseph Paul.

"I have four offers, I believe," Paul said. "I have Florida State, Texas, Texas A&M and Tulane, and Mississippi State told me they are very interested and they may have offered."

The 6-foot-4, 330-pound high school right tackle with impressive initial punch and body quickness broke down his top three offers.

Florida State - "I really liked FSU when I went there for junior day. I liked the atmosphere and environment. The offensive line coach was really enthusiastic, and I liked that."

Texas A&M - "I really, really, really like Texas A&M. They are not only in the SEC, but they are a school I have always liked, along with Texas, having lived in Texas for a year or so after Hurricane Katrina. Texas A&M had two great tackles this season, Luke Joeckel and Jake Matthews, and have a really good team."

Texas - "Texas, I know they are a great program, and I liked the Longhorns growing up when I lived in Texas. Texas head coach Mack Brown came by the school and offered me a few weeks ago. I think me and a couple of teammates are supposed to go to junior day Feb. 23."

If the Seminoles, Aggies or Longhorns are to sign Paul, it will very likely come down to whether in-state power LSU offers.

"LSU was definitely my favorite school growing up. Trai Turner, who plays at LSU and played at St. Augustine is like a big brother to me. He's helped me so much and I look up to him," he said.

Apparently Tee Martin is on the list as well. Tee Martin is the former Tennessee QB who beat us in the National Championship. I think if Tee Martin gets hired he won't get the OC title at all

Mike Johnson is aight. When he was with the 9ers our offense improved a lil bit and Alex Smith at that point was starting to become a decent NFL QB. I'm not down on the hire but I'm not excited either. tbf to him the 49ers were a mess when he was hired in the middle of the season. I think he might have did OK at UCLA tho.

Nickel Package: Top five combine snubs
February, 13, 2013
FEB 13
2:40
PM ET
By Todd McShay

Florida State ILB Vince Williams: A late addition to the Senior Bowl roster, Williams came to Mobile, Ala., and immediately stood out as the physical and emotional leader of the South defense. He is a big-time hitter, shows good instincts and is at his best against the inside running game.

Williams' estimated 40 time is in the 4.9-second range, but he makes more plays outside the tackles than you would expect from a player with his timed speed. Patriots ILB Brandon Spikes -- who ran in the 4.9s at his pro day workout -- has shown inside linebackers can overcome a lack of elite speed, even in today's pass-happy NFL.

Overall, Williams (6-foot-0˝, 247 pounds) grades out in the late-third or early-fourth round area.

Florida State S Lamarcus Joyner: He shows good closing burst, and when Joyner sees something developing, he has the ability to get there and either separate the receiver from the ball or make a play on the ball. He's had good production but is the opposite of Williams in that Joyner (5-8, 205) has good speed but lacks ideal size.

However, he plays with energy and files around the field, and if nothing else, he'll make a good kick-cover guy who can hang around on special teams while developing his skills and eventually trying to carve out a contributing role. Joyner grades out in the early part of Day 3.

State of the Noles: Tight Ends
February, 13, 2013
FEB 13
8:30
AM ET
By NoleNation Staff | ESPN.com
RECOMMEND0COMMENTS2EMAILPRINT

Robert Mayer/US Presswire
Florida State ight end Nick O'Leary is the clear starter for the next two seasons.

When it comes to recruiting, coaches must think long-term. It's not just about which holes must be filled immediately, but rather where the needs might be in two or three years.

With that in mind, NoleNation writers David Hale and Corey Dowlar are going position by position, looking at what FSU has on its roster now and who might provide reinforcements down the line, projecting starters and evaluating the depth through 2015.

Up next, a position that could become a much bigger part of the offense in 2013: Tight end.

Current scholarship TEs (5): Nick O'Leary (Jr.), Kevin Haplea (Sr.), Christo Kourtzidis (So.), Dan Hicks (RSr.), Jeremy Kerr (Fr.)

Potential early departures: O'Leary arrived in Tallahassee as the nation's top tight end recruit, so he certainly has the talent to garner the attention of NFL scouts -- but it would require a big step forward in his junior season in 2013.

Predicted starters (Hale's pick/Dowlar's pick)
2013: O'Leary/O'Leary
2014: O'Leary/O'Leary
2015: Kourtzidis/Kourtzidis

Why they'll start: Few positions appear as straightforward looking ahead as tight end, where Florida State has a clear No. 1 in O'Leary, who figures to wrap up his career as a four-year starter. Kourtzidis projects as the clear heir apparent. The bigger question is just how significant the role of tight end will be as Jimbo Fisher tweaks its offense without longtime starting fullback Lonnie Pryor.

O'Leary took a small step forward in his sophomore campaign in 2012, catching 21 passes -- the most by a tight end during Fisher's tenure calling plays at FSU -- but even with that increased production, the tight ends accounted for just 7.5 percent of the Seminoles' receiving yards.

With Pryor gone, however, Fisher has said O'Leary could be featured as a half back, and FSU could employ more two-tight end sets. Add a first-year starter at quarterback still getting used to the offense and it stands to reason there could be a bigger role than ever for the tight ends.

EJ Manuel raved about O'Leary's potential before the 2012 season, and there were flashes of just how dangerous a weapon he could be. In the end, O'Leary's shortcomings were just as evident. But with two more years left to improve, the best is likely still to come, and the next few seasons could provide far more opportunity to showcase his skillsw.

Who might FSU add: Florida State only signed one tight end in the 2013 class, and Kerr might not even stay at the position. At 6-foot-6 and nearly 260 pounds, Kerr could potentially find himself growing into a massive offensive tackle. Though, it must be said, there wasn't a huge need at tight end this cycle because of the numbers at the position.

The Seminoles have only offered a pair of prospects at the position for 2014 -- Kevin Crosby (Bamberg, S.C./Bamberg) and Tyler Luatua (La Mirada, Calif./La Marida) -- so it is hard to say how they look going forward. Moral Stephens (Perry, Fla./Taylor County) could eventually grow to tight-end size since he's already pushing 6-foot-4 and 200 pounds.

Long-term grade: C-plus. The position is in good hands for 2013 with O'Leary, Kourtzidis and veteran Penn State transfer Haplea, along with a healthy Hicks. But the latter two are gone at year's end, and there's at least the possibility O'Leary could depart, too, if he enjoys a breakout season. That would leave FSU is a tight spot for 2014 and beyond and put plenty of pressure on the coaching staff to nab some depth in next year's signing class -- particularly if the position continues to evolve into a bigger part of the offensive scheme.

Jameis Winston
I've got a story up today on Jameis Winston's quest to play both baseball and football -- and how he's balancing the two this spring.

I spoke with Winston about a few other things that didn't find their way into the story, but figured it was worth sharing...

On how he views the QB competition:
"It's something I want to do. We've got three good quarterbacks over there, but this is what I want to do, and I'm going to have to compete just like them. We'll all be out there at the same time, and no one's going to have an upper hand."

On what he gained by redshirting in 2012:
"Oh man, I gained about 23 pounds."

(Great answer, right?)

On what he gained, knowledge-wise, by redshirting:
"A lot. I love EJ. He's a great quarterback. And seeing how Jimbo works, it was different. Over here, it's fun because everybody out here is talented. It's not like back home -- these boys are the real deal."

On the difference between Fisher & Martin:
"Eleven is laid back. He handles stuff differently. Coach Fisher is more of a hands-on guy."

On offseason talk with the other QBs:
"I don't talk to them. I talk to Coker some. But I don't talk to Clint or Sean. Me and Coker have class together, so we laugh, but we don't ever talk about the situation. All of us know there's a job out there but we're just having fun."

On finding time to prep for both sports:
"The sports not the problem. It's really school. It's time management. ... In fall, I had time where I could go hang out on the weekends with my boys. Now I have to chill, do homework, catch up."

On whether he'd want to stay at FSU the next few years if he's not the starting QB:
"I don't think about that stuff. That's what the fans talk about, but I'm not thinking about that right now."

Matthew Thomas wanted to go to USC, but mom wouldn't sign LOI
posted by Bud Elliott, Feb 14, 2013

Josh Newberg: At what point did you know you were going to sign with Florida State?
Matthew Thomas: Well I decided that morning (Signing Day). The night before I was honestly thinking USC. I was trying to get the LOI and everything ready and signed first. But my mom didn't want to sign it. She didn't want me to go to USC.

JN: So if your mom would have signed the papers you'd be a Trojan right now?
MT: Yeah, I would have been a Trojan.

JN: Are you upset about that?
MT: No I think everything works out how it's supposed to. I'm going to make the best of my situation. It's not like I'm unhappy, I really like Florida State. It's not a problem, I'm happy with my decision.

JN: Tell me more about you and your mom's discussion. Did it get heated when she wouldn't sign the LOI?
MT: No we just talked and stuff. We couldn't agree, but it's my mom, I just did what I had to do.

JN: What was your feeling after your signing ceremony?
MT: I had butterflies. I was like, 'wow I really just did it'.

JN: Tell me about Denver Kirkland, your good friend and teammate, were you surprised he signed with Arkansas?
MT: I knew that he was going to Arkansas. When that stuff happened with Miami, they took his scholarship, we talked and I said, 'I don't trust them, they'll do the same thing to me'. We worked out the night before Signing Day and I told him I was going to USC and he told me he was thinking about Miami, Ole Miss and Arkansas. He was saying he liked Arkansas and I said to go ahead if that's where your heart is at. The next day he signed with Arkansas, but I didn't tell him yet that I changed my mind. But then he told me that if I would have told him I was going to Florida State then he would have gone with me. He thought I was going to USC.
Matthew Thomas at Booker T. Washington

Booker T. teammates Matthew Thomas and Denver Kirkland.

JN: Did you tell the FSU staff or any other staff that you were going to USC?
MT: No. Well I told the coaches at USC, Lane Kiffin and them.

JN: What was your mindset before the Denver Kirkland drama? Were you leaning toward Miami at that point?
MT: No not really. I wanted to get away from home, I never really wanted to stay home.

JN: At the end of the process, how bad did the pressure get to stay home?
MT: It wasn't too bad at school. I was kind of isolated and stuff so it wasn't that bad. But on social networks and stuff that's where it was kind of bad. Fans wanting me to stay home, that's where it got bad.

JN: How did you stay in control of your recruitment with people always voicing their opinions on where you should go?
MT: Those are just opinions. I know what I want and I'm not going to let someone tell me where I should go. This was a big decision for me and I wasn't going to let someone else make a decision that I have to live with.

JN: What was the hardest part about not staying home and playing for Miami?
MT: I got five little brothers that wanted me to stay home so they could go to my home games and watch me play. It was hard to tell my brothers that I was leaving.

JN: James Coley recruited you at FSU for almost two years before taking a job at Miami. Was it hard to tell him that you weren't going to Miami?
MT: I think he already knew. When he was recruiting me at Florida State he asked me if Miami had a chance and I was like, 'not really'. I don't think he thought anything was going to change when he went to Miami.

JN: Did James Coley go after you when he was at Miami or did he spend too much time recruiting you to FSU for that to work?
MT: He didn't talk to me when he went to Miami. I talked to coach (Michael) Barrow and coach (Al) Golden.

JN: Was James Coley in on the final in-home visit the week before Signing Day?
MT: No he didn't come with them.
Matthew Thomas at Booker T. Washington

JN: Why do you think James Coley wasn't a part of your recruitment when he went to Miami?
MT: Because like he was trying to swing me to Florida State for so long, how are you gonna now persuade me to come to Miami? That just doesn't work.

JN: If you could name one or two primary reasons on why you chose FSU, what would they be?
MT: I trust coach Jimbo and I trust coach Pruitt.

JN: What was the conversation like between you and the FSU coaches after you signed your letter of intent?
MT: It was just like relief for all of us. Coach Fisher asked me how I felt about everything and I told him I feel good. I told him I'm ready to come in and get to work now.

JN: What was the best part of the recruiting process for you?
MT: The visits (big laugh). The whole experience of getting out of Miami, going on a plane, going to see new things, talk to new people, all that stuff. It was fun.

JN: Besides always having to do interviews with me, what was the worst part of the process?
MT: Like after the game having to do interviews with reporters. You are tired and just trying to get to the bus and you got reporters all in your chest trying to talk to you.

JN: Really? That was the worst part of the whole process?
MT: Yeah man. You are tired, your brain beat, you aren't thinking right. You got people coming up with cameras to do interviews and you are talking all stupid. I don't feel like talking after games.

JN: How old are you now? How old were you when you were a freshman in high school?
MT: I'm 17 now. I was like 14 in my freshman year.

JN: Do you think 14 year old Matthew Thomas would ever think he'd be signing with Florida State?
MT: Nah, nah, in 9th grade I wanted to go to Alabama.

JN: If 17 year Matthew Thomas went to 14 year old Matthew Thomas and told him to get his FSU gear ready because that's where you're going, what would the 14 year old Matthew Thomas say?
MT: Well I always kinda liked Florida State, but I'd be like, 'damn, I'm gonna make you regret those words and I'm gonna go somewhere else'. That's just the kinda kid I was.

JN: So even back in 9th grade you didn't see yourself playing for Miami?
MT: I liked Miami a lot too. I looked up to a lot of those guys. I wanted to play for the 'U', I was throwing up the 'U' all the time. But ya know, in the end it just wasn't for me.

JN: How do you feel about all those pictures floating around of you throwing up the 'U'?
MT: I just think that that was Matthew Thomas then and now I'm gonna be throwing up the 'chop' cause now I'm Matthew Thomas the 'Nole.

JN: But based on what you are saying to me, you were throwing up the 'U' knowing that wasn't the school you were going to. What's up with that?
MT: Of course. But I've been a fan of Miami since I was little and that was like me showing my support. I still like them and watch them.

JN: What are you most looking forward to now that Signing Day is over?
MT: I'm looking forward to playing, man. I'm ready to play now.

JN: Has the FSU staff told you what they want you to do this offseason?
MT: Yeah they are sending me all the stuff down. They know I can learn fast so they're sending me the defense and the workout plan.

JN: Do you have one last message for Florida State fans?
MT: Ya'll ready? Let's go get it!
