This time final summer season, Clemson University tight end Jordan Leggett was openly speaking in regards to the NFL.
December 11 Update: Damion Lee has met Rick Pitino’s high expectations, and Trey Lewis has exceeded them; the pair have shaped a dynamic duo that can make Louisville hard to defend all yr. Donavan Mitchell has come in able to go as well. In the put up, Chinanu Onuaku has turn out to be a foul ready to occur. Fortunately, Mangok Mathiang has improved significantly, particularly on the offensive finish. Anas Mahmoud has been the team’s most attention-grabbing participant; he is remarkably agile and skilled with the basketball, and the only potential limitation to his improvement is his want so as to add strength.
If there is one area of concern on a defense that ranked No. 9 nationally in scoring protection (17.5 ppg) last season, it’s at linebacker, the place FSU lost seniors Reggie Northrup and Terrance Smith. Projected starters Matthew Thomas and Ro’Derrick Hoskins are gifted, however Thomas has yet to play a full season of college football. He was suspended for half of the 2014 season and was ineligible for all of 2015.
Some of those fourth-quarter numbers may be explained by rubbish time, but this was nonetheless a thin entrance seven. Only four linemen recorded more than 14 tackles, solely six greater than four.5. And at linebacker, FSU was paper-thin, with solely two of the highest eight LBs playing in all thirteen video games and solely 4 managing greater than nine tackles. This possible resulted in some slippage as a half wore on and fatigue grew to become a factor.
The subsequent phase was to handle the football staff’s amenities, particularly the locker room, players’ lounge and coaches’ offices, and that work began in late April after FSU’s spring soccer game. FSU isn’t adding square footage to these areas as part of the reworking. But at $5 million to $6 million, FSU should get plenty of bang for its buck.
