Preseason All-American Brandon Jenkins and junior Bjoern Werner give Florida State one of the best defensive end tandems in the country. But when one of them comes off the field, former junior college standout Cornellius “Tank” Carradine makes sure the Seminoles do not miss a beat off the edge. With Jenkins and Carradine set to graduate, FSU is hoping to reel in another impact pass rusher from the juco ranks.

Heading into his senior year of high school in Greenville, Ala., Zadarius Smith (Scooba, Miss./East Mississippi Community College) was a lanky, 6-foot-6, 220 pounds and filled with hoop dreams.

“My heart was into basketball back in high school, but football changed my life my senior year,” Smith said. “I had 13 sacks, 24 tackles and 12 quarterback pressures, but I was not really focused in the classroom.”
