(Photo by Streeter Lecka/Getty Images)Florida State lost a big commitment today. Isaac Nauta, a five-star tight end in the 2016 class, announced on Twitter that he has de-committed from the Seminoles’ program. FSU fans shouldn’t worry, though, according to five-star defensive back commit Levonta Taylor. Taylor, who has been committed to FSU since April, says Nauta will “be back” and tells fans “don’t worry!” He’ll be back. Don’t worry !— Levonta Taylor (@iamlevonta) July 28, 2015Well, that’s a good sign, Florida State fans. The Seminoles’ 2016 class is ranked the No. 3 class in the country by 247 Sports.
National titleCollege football fans are likely happy with Michigan’s quick turnaround under Jim Harbaugh – simply because a good Wolverines team makes the sport more interesting. But apparently, a lot of them are actually starting to believe that UM can both reach this year’s College Football Playoff and – wait for it – win it all too.According to ESPN’s David Payne Purdum, the top five teams by number of bets to win the national title at the Las Vegas SuperBook are Michigan, Ohio State, LSU, Clemson and Alabama. That’s right – the Wolverines are getting the most bets to win it all.Of course – that’s a product of both hype and odds. As of February 1, Michigan was a 12-1 bet to win it all. Alabama was tops, at 6:1.Top 5 teams to win the college football national title by number of bets @LVSuperBook: 1. Michigan 2. Ohio St 3. LSU 4. Clemson 5. Alabama— David Payne Purdum (@DavidPurdum) May 20, 2016Oklahoma and Baylor are the teams with the best odds that aren’t part of the list, for what it’s worth.If Michigan does win it all, Las Vegas is going to have a rough night. We’ll find out.
