Earlier this morning we posted about how the UofL – Florida State line opened up at -8.5 and had already moved down to as low as -6 for the Seminoles. However, after just 6 hours, the line continues to move in Louisville’s favor as news about a couple of potential suspensions and injuries loom large for FSU. First, Florida State’s star running back Karlos Williams is under investigation by the Tallahassee police department due to a potential domestic violence dispute that occurred this past Saturday night.

According to Mike Hughes of insidetheville.com, the Florida State tilt is serving as a major opportunity to land some new commitments as the program is hosting some high-level JUCO standouts. The areas of immediate need after this season are with the OL and WR position groups and as you can tell from the visitor list, those are the prospects that will be coming to town.

Postseason projection: NCAA Sweet 16 Montrezl Harrell is a proven big man and Rick Pitino reloads with...Continue reading »
