Each week, Tales from the Road features news and updates on where Florida State coaches are recruiting and the Seminoles’ targets.
Word on the street: Q: It seems like Tallahassee-area prospects are on the way up again. Is that the case? Yeah, that's a fair assessment. Between Jacob Pugh (Tallahassee, Fla./Godby) and Kendall Randolph (Tallahassee, Fla./Lincoln), you have two nationally ranked guys right inside the city limits. It doesn't stop in 2014. Keith Gavin, from just outside the city in Wakulla, could be a top prospect in the state in 2016. Seems as if the area is on the rise.
What to watch for: Rumors are circulating that Jacob Pugh might make a decision this week. If so, Florida State should feel pretty good about their chances. They've been on him heavily throughout the process. If he does make his choice, FSU fans are likely to be happy and will likely add another talented player to a linebacker group that appears to be destined for success.
