Florida State Seminoles’ new defense sinks in


Miami Herald Writer

Coach Jimbo Fisher has liked what he has seen so far from his new defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt, who replaced Mark Stoops after he left to take the coaching job at Kentucky at the end of last season.

“It’s good. He relates well to the players,” Fisher said of Pruitt. “I always thought he did that and I felt the kids wanted to play for him. That’s a great sign and one of the things about the interview process. That’s one of the key things about it — they got to want to play for you.”

• FSU continued its camp on Saturday with a two-a-day workout. Initially scheduled for Friday, the Seminoles opted to ease back into their routine after a physical first scrimmage Wednesday afternoon and a day of Thursday.

Among the Seminoles’ chief concerns, left tackle Cameron Erving has been limited lately, but Fisher expects his starter to be back to full speed by Monday.
