Florida State will be hoping its commitment list swells by one at The Opening in Oregon.

Safety prospect Trey Marshall (Lake City, Fla./Columbia) says he soon will be deciding between his two finalists.

LAKE CITY, Fla. -- With Alabama and Georgia out in front by what seemed to be a considerable margin, five-star Columbia High School offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil thought he had things pretty much figured out. But after a weekend visit to Ole Miss, the fifth-ranked player in the country says he is now even more confused about where he stands in the recruiting process.

Signing day primer: Florida State

Who is leaving: Florida State is losing three top-flight defensive ends to the NFL draft this season, led by draft-eligible junior Bjoern Werner. Senior Tank Carradine's stock would have been much higher if not for a late knee injury in the regular season finale against Florida. Brandon Jenkins, who was lost for most of the 2012 season because of a foot injury, will also be heading to the pros.

The offensive line only loses one player, junior Menelik Watson, but it is a big one. He's likely to go in the first couple of rounds and had a major impact for Florida State in just one season.

Xavier Rhodes is the lone corner departing, but it's also a big one. Aside from Rhodes, the secondary will return largely intact.

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- It’s no secret that Alabama is recruiting ESPN 150 offensive tackle Austin Golson in case things don’t work out with Laremy Tunsil, but after last week’s U.S. Army All-American Bowl, maybe Golson shouldn’t be only the back-up plan.

SAN ANTONIO -- It’s funny what can come from All-Star game weeks.

SAN ANTONIO -- ESPN 150 outside linebacker Mike Mitchell (Plano, Texas/Prestonwood Christian) isn’t big on speaking publicly. He’d rather let his game do the talking -- and it speaks volumes.

On Monday, the 6-foot-5, 222-pound linebacker officially confirmed that he will announce his college plans during Saturday’s U.S. Army All-American Bowl. Oregon, Texas A&M and Ohio State are his three finalists.

Jeremy Pruitt's rise to defensive coordinator at Florida State University was a quick one.

Officially announced as Mark Stoops' replacement on Dec. 20, Pruitt arrives in Tallahassee as one of the young stars in the college football world. Both on and off the field.

As a tireless recruiter, Pruitt has done nothing but help his own stock. At his previous stop with Nick Saban in Tuscaloosa, Ala., he dominated the I-10 corridor in Alabama all the way to Jacksonville, Fla.

FSU's recruiting Christmas wish list

Christmas, for many, is a time to gather with close friends and family, eat way too much, catch up on all the happenings and exchange gifts.

But, for a moment, let's imagine what presents would reside underneath a Florida State fan's Christmas tree on Tuesday morning.

Stacy Coley
Jeff Peoples/IntersportFSU fans would be more than pleased to get WR Stacy Coley.
With Ryan Green (St. Petersburg, Fla./St. Petersburg Catholic) already on board, ESPN 150 running back Alex Collins (Plantation, Fla./South Plantation) would be the perfect icing on the cake at the tailback position. At one point, FSU fans would have expected to unwrap this gift with little surprise, but the road to his signature has become less clear.
