This is the quietest time of a recruiting season that is active for nearly all but a few weeks of the year. Both high school and college programs are in the midst of a preseason practice, so recruiting takes a back seat. That is not to say recruiting still isn’t in the air, as even during the slow periods there is always news going on.

FSU beats division rival for Leonard

The future of the ACC Atlantic Division was not decided Aug. 13, but it is always nice to beat not just a conference rival, but a division rival for a recruit. Three-star Rick Leonard (Middletown, Md./Middletown), the No. 34 defensive end nationally, chose Florida State over Clemson earlier this week. Leonard adds to an impressive defensive line haul for the Seminoles, who also have two ESPN 300 linemen committed. On the other hand, Clemson doesn't have any committed defensive ends.
