I read this and my d!ck go hard thinking about what are defense could be next year. We were second behind Alabama playing conservative football. Can't wait to see what happens when we get aggressive

Tide of enthusiasmTALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- The projection Christian Jones got from NFL evaluators pegged him as a third- or fourth-round selection, just strong enough to make the idea of entering the draft after his junior season intriguing. Add the new coaching staff and defensive scheme at Florida State, and he might have been leaning toward leaving.

Jeremy Pruitt will bring more of Alabama's blitzing defense to Florida State's scheme.
Before Jones could open the door to the NFL, however, Jimbo Fisher and new defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt offered their own sales pitch. They sat Jones down and flipped on the film of Pruitt's defense at Alabama, where Rolando McClain and Dont'a Hightower blossomed into first-round draft picks. It was red meat for a linebacker hungry to become a playmaker.
"I'm pretty much playing that same spot," Jones said. "I want to be able to do that, too."

Jones wasn't the only member of Florida State's defense to get that sales pitch from Pruitt, and the film of Alabama's championship defense has been popular viewing material during the past few months.

It's not that Pruitt plans to implement the exact same scheme as the Crimson Tide, for whom he served as defensive backs coach for the past three seasons, but Alabama's aggressive philosophy will be a hallmark of the approach he plans to take at FSU.

"The actual defense, we're basically doing the same stuff, just getting more active," linebacker Telvin Smith said. "It's fun."

It might sound a bit strange for members of a defense that finished second in the nation last season to be excited about change, but the Seminoles aren't viewing it as a step back from last year's success. After all, the one team ahead of FSU in the 2012 standings was Alabama.

While Florida State's success under former coordinator Mark Stoops was based heavily on getting pressure from the front four, while the linebackers and defensive backs stressed a.ssignment football, Pruitt plans to open things up and let his athletes explore their potential.

A year ago, Florida State finished with 36 sacks -- one more than Alabama -- but 33 of them came from the defensive line. Jones led FSU defenders with 95 tackles, but just seven were for a loss and none resulted in a sack.

"The guys we have, we have so many great athletes on the team," Jones said. "To be in a system like this, it's going to showcase our skills more. I'm excited for it, and once we get it all down, we have a really dominant defense."

Jones said the linebackers will blitz more often, and on some third-down packages he'll be playing on the line with his hand on the ground. Karlos Williams said every member of the secondary is cross-training at other positions, so when Jones moves to the line of scrimmage, for example, Williams could end up at linebacker. Lamarcus Joyner's switch from safety to corner was made, in part, because Pruitt is intrigued by the potential of allowing Joyner to blitz more often, too. In just a handful of practices this spring, the players are already drowning in new blitz packages.

ESPN's NoleNation
Join the discussion about all things Florida State football and recruiting, exclusively for NoleNation fans in Tomahawk Talk.

"We're putting in so many blitzes already -- and it's our third practice," Jones said. "It's going to be fun. We all really wanted to start blitzing."
Personnel certainly is a factor, too. Pruitt said he was amazed at the level of talent on FSU's roster in 2012, but was quick to note how much of that talent is headed to the NFL this season. Replacing pass-rushers like Bjoern Werner and Cornellius Carradine won't be easy, but the more aggressive scheme offers ample possibilities.

Of course, the spring is just beginning, the terminology is entirely new, and watching clips of Alabama's scheme hardly makes the Seminoles experts. But for a unit that just a few months earlier was lamenting the loss of so many longtime coaches, there is a genuine feeling of enthusiasm about what could be in store for 2013.

"I'm not knocking those guys," Smith said of the Tide, "but I love the team and the guys we've got running that defense, and I feel like we can really put something together."

this was a practice a few days before the scrimmage

A few practice observations....
So Jimbo Fisher was kind enough to allow media to observe the entirety of practice for the past two days, which was a nice little bonus for us.

Now, I don't have the playbook memorized or know much of the terminology, and I'm not exactly an NFL scout either, so my observations don't necessarily mean much in the grand scheme of things, but I figured I'd share a few things that jumped out at me...

-- The QBs have rotated as Jimbo suggested, but it's still a pretty clear pecking order right now, with Trickett at the top, Coker running with the 2s, Winston with the 3s. Worth noting though that the 1s and 3s work together, and that's the field where Jimbo is most of the time, so he's spent much more time watching Trickett and Winston live than Coker or Maguire.

-- From my perspective, there's no question who is best equipped to start at QB if the season began tomorrow: It's Trickett, and it's not close. He's easily got the best grasp of the offense right now, and while his arm strength obviously isn't what Coker or Winston offers, he's able to make the majority of the throws and he's been far more accurate during practice. Obviously a lot can change between now and Week 1, but Winston and Coker have some catching up to do.

-- I should mention though, Winston's talent is obvious. He's got a cannon, though he doesn't always have the touch he needs. That will come with time. He's very energetic in practice, which is something you like seeing from a QB. His athleticism definitely warrants the hype, too. While he had a handful of nice throws Thursday, the highlight was a nekkid bootleg he ran in 11-on-11 drills.

-- Fisher seems very pleased with the RBs overall, and I think it's going to be tough for any one to carve out a huge slice of the pie. Having said that, James Wilder Jr. has looked really good, and he's been among the most vocal guys on offense during practice. At a time when the QB is in a state of flux, he's taken the reins a bit.

-- Among receivers, the standout guy thus far has got to be Greg Dent, who has looked terrific. Fisher has moved him around a bit between positions, too, which means we could see him filling in that Rodney Smith role some this year, even if Dent isn't the prototypical size.

-- Kevin Haplea has looked really good, too, and Jimbo raved about him after practice today. The upside is much higher for Nick O'Leary but it's Haplea who does the little things right, and that's the priority from Tim Brewster & Co. at the moment.

-- Speaking of O'Leary, one of today's highlights came during 1-on-1 thud drills. RBs and TEs were going against the LBs, and Brewster jumped in and asked Charles Kelly who his best guy was. Kelly threw out Christian Jones, and Brewster told O'Leary to face off against him. It was close, but O'Leary had the edge.

-- Those drills were a ton of fun to watch, highlighted by a bit of a shouting match between Wilder and Jones after going against each other. Very intense, really fun.

-- It's also pretty obvious that Jeremy Pruitt is mixing things up quite a bit on defense. They've run a lot of different looks moving guys around, with Giorgio Newberry and Chris Casher standing up, Christian Jones playing with his hand on the ground, Karlos Williams coming up to play LB in dime formations, etc. There's a ton of movement before the snap, and while that's still causing plenty of confusion for the defenders trying to learn the plays, it's also been a big challenge for the offense, too. And on that note, there were times today where defenders were coming off the field and asking teammates what was going on. There's still a lot of learning to be done -- but it's early, and there's a ton of potential there.

-- Speaking of Newberry, he seems to be Sal Sunseri's favorite target so far. Sunseri has ridden him hard in these first two weeks of practice, but Newberry said today he loves working with Sunseri and feels like he's really being pushed to get better.

-- As expected, Lamarcus Joyner is getting a lot of work in the nickel spot when FSU goes to 5 DBs.

FSU looks to keep Aquinas pipeline open

Much is made of pipeline schools for certain programs and their recruiting plans, but more often than not, they aren't lasting or sustainable advantages given coaching turnover.

Florida State's had a few of these -- Lincoln High School in Tallahassee or Valdosta Lowndes for example, But no other high school has been more important in restocking the Seminoles’ roster with quality players in recent years than Ft. Lauderdale's St. Thomas Aquinas.

[+] Enlarge

AP Photo/Don Juan Moore
Lamarcus Joyner was a national player of the year coming out of St. Thomas Aquinas in 2010.
A powerhouse for the better part of the decade, Aquinas has shocked nobody by appearing in state championship games seemingly every year. And since 2007, they've brought home the trophy four times.

So for Florida State, recruiting the Raiders' program makes perfect sense. Not only is there plenty of talent, but they also get players who know how to win.

Defensive back Lamarcus Joyner could probably be credited with getting it all started in 2010. He'd been pursued by nearly every school in the country, but it was the Seminoles who won out over Alabama, Florida, Miami, Ohio State, South Carolina and USC.

Joyner has been a cornerstone of the FSU defense since arriving in Tallahassee and his choice made it easy for the rest to follow.

The next cycle, Florida State added three more players from Aquinas -- center Austin Barron, wide receiver Rashad Greene and offensive tackle Bobby Hart. All three would start at least one game during their freshman seasons.

Greene, of course, highlighted this group and was FSU’s leading receiver last season as a sophomore. Barron and Hart, meanwhile, are in the mix for playing time again this fall.

It's been a while since Florida State has been back to Aquinas, though. No players were signed in 2012 or 2013.

But Jimbo Fisher and his staff would certainly like to change that with this year’s class.

Defensive tackle Anthony Moten, who has the potential to play defensive end or tackle at the next level, is off the board after committing to Florida on Tuesday.

Wide receiver Corey Holmes, a major receiver recruit who holds 20 offers and reminds many of Greene, is the other Watch List member for the Raiders.

It's a long time until signing day so anything could happen with Moten, but the Seminoles will have some work to do. The same goes for Holmes. Time will only tell if he or an under-the-radar prospect in this class can keep FSU’s pipeline open.

Lyons gets a sneak peek at FSU practice

Florida State 2013 signee Tyrell Lyons (Jacksonville, Fla./First Coast) dropped into Tallahassee last week to check out his future coaches and team on the practice fields.

This was a little different than practices he's been to in the past. A lot of that is due to the new man in charge on defense, Jeremy Pruitt.

"It was good," said Lyons. "I just met Coach Pruitt. He is a good coach and I like him."

Not that the atmosphere before was relaxed, but this new group of coaches have raised the bar somewhat. And Lyons could tell.

But that's not a deterrent. He views it as a chance to get better.

"It's definitely intense," Lyons said. "There isn't any playing around. I like that.

"It raises my level of play, and it makes me get better. It makes you try harder at everything."

At the linebacker spot, the Seminoles have brought in a new face, too. Charles Kelly is in from Georgia Tech, and Lyons made it a point to seek him out and get to know the new segment leader better.

"He's a guy that is very cool," he said. "These new coaches, they have the same attributes. They are going to tell you how it is and get on you if you are doing it wrong. They aren't going to sit back, they are going to make sure you are doing it right. That's what we want."

Lyons couldn't help but think about getting out on the practice fields himself. That time will come soon enough.

In the meantime, he'll continue to look forward to his college career starting next summer when he reports to campus.

"I am very excited," he said. "I would be happy if I had graduated early, but that didn't work out. But yeah, I am excited."

ESPN rated Lyons as a four-star prospect during last year's cycle. He chose the Seminoles over Clemson, Miami, North Carolina and South Carolina.

WR commit Worton satisfied with FSU trip

This weekend gave Florida State a chance to improve its standing with commitment C.J. Worton (Homestead, Fla./South Dade) amid the speculation of Miami's increased influence.


C.J. Worton
Wide receiver

Committed: Florida State

Pos RkStarsGradeHometown
NR
Homestead, FL
The ESPN Watch List member has felt the full-court press of the Hurricanes since they offered, and with ties such as former FSU offensive coordinator James Coley, FSU's in-state rival should be considered a threat. So Worton's decision to drive up to Tallahassee for an unofficial visit presented a big opportunity.

"The visit was awesome," Worton said. "Getting to see the coaches and watching practice was great."

The new coaching staff, including of new regional recruiter Tim Brewster, had yet to interact with Worton on a face-to-face basis. Lawrence Dawsey, his position coach should he sign with the Seminoles, reminded the 6-foot-1, 170-pound receiver that they will need numbers at his position coming up.

"They were real excited to talk to me and catch up and everything," he said. "Coach Dawsey was real excited to see me and was telling me how thin he is getting at wide receiver because they could lose four, possibly five. And I also got to talk to Coach Brew [Brewster], and he was really excited to finally meet me."

Worton said his trip made his Florida State commitment stronger than before.

"Definitely," he said. "Every time I go up to campus I feel like I want to be there."

Worton won't have too much free time this summer between offseason workouts and summer camps. All throughout Florida, and potentially beyond, he will be competing against other prospects under the supervision of college coaches.

"FSU, UM, UF, UCF and possibly Ohio State and LSU," he listed.

Worton also has offers from Marshall and Ole Miss. Ohio State and UCF continue to show interest.
