With July expected to be a huge month for Florida State's recruiting efforts with the Class of 2018, our Michael Langston recaps where things stand with many major prospects in his latest Recruiting Rumor Mill. In this edition, he tackles all of these hot topics and more:

* The latest developments with five-star QB Justin Fields: Are the Seminoles still in the hunt? And when might they get a visit?

* Is Georgia really a threat to steal FSU running back commitment James Cook?

* How are the 'Noles trending with top out-of-state WR prospects like Jaylen Waddle, Tommy Bush and Marquez Ezzard? And can they count on landing in-state wideout Antoine Green in this class?

* And what about Alabama WR Justyn Ross? Could the 'Noles finally pull a top wideout from that state after repeated disappointments?

* FSU recently picked up its second big OL commitment for this class. Which top line targets could be next?

* On defense, we take a closer look at FSU's DL and LB recruiting and where the Seminoles are focusing their efforts. Will Zakoby McClain make the cut?

* And which DBs will be added to this class? Patrick Surtain? Israel Mukuamu?

We've got all of that info and more, including what we're hearing on top FSU prospects at The Opening event, which is taking place this week in Oregon.
