Need a quick recruiting fix? Well, click here to read the latest on Florida State's recruiting efforts.

We are now 49 days to National signing Day. Several recruits on Florida States board, have made their decision, or have narrowed down their choices.

Here is some news:

Defensive back Kenny Scott visited Georgia Tech last weekend. I feel it's a three-team race right now with Tech, FSU and Florida. Notre Dame and Tennessee have to rally.

Also hearing some rumblings about the nation's top prospect in Ernie Simms III. Ernie visited Florida this past weekend, but did not commit. Hearing from a good source, Ernie has co-leaders Florida and Georgia at this point. Now don't go off the deep end, because it is my feeling, and several, several top analysts opinion, that Ernie will stay at home and go to Florida State when it is all said and done.

The Insiders' top wide receiver, Whitney Lewis, had a career night in the counties all-star game scoring five touchdowns. At this point, FSU leads USC, and Texas. If Whitney is the number one wide receiver, then Andre Caldwell has to be tabbed 1-B.

This elite wide receiver had been rumored to be leaning to the 'Canes. Hearing from good sources, this is not the case. Keep this in mind -- Florida State will get last crack at him when he visits on Jan. 31.

Now for some commitments:

Steven Jones has committed to Tennessee over Florida State. Prior to his commitment, the Florida State coaches felt very confident that the 4-star OL was coming to Tallahassee.

Also Jeff Zuttah, an offensive line prospect from New Jersey, is done with all of his visits, and should be making a decision soon. With that in mind, look for Florida State to step up to the plate with California offensive linemen Kevin Brown and Steve Rissler.

It is my belief and also hearing that if Florida State put an offer on the table, Kevin Brown would commit in a New York Minute.

On the flip side, FSU missed out on Terrell Brown, who gave his pledge to the Longhorns today. It sounds like a lot of bad news, but keep in mind, that we are talking about Florida State. There is no doubt, in this recruitniks mind, that FSU will still end up with a great class. Go Noles Wayne
