      Florida State continues recruiting momentum with 2017 commitment

      Florida State has been active on the recruiting trail recently and the Seminoles continued that momentum on Wednesday with a commitment from in-state wing Wyatt Wilkes.

Such was the case on Wednesday when Rutgers let loose a Twitter brag which said that Ray Allen, Rip Hamilton and Shabazz Napier -- all of whom played at UConn while current Rutgers associate head coach Karl Hobbs was an assistant there -- had combined to earn $1.1 billion in NBA earnings. (New Rutgers head coach Steve Pikiell also played at UConn.)
