FSU freshman DE Josh Sweat cleared for opener

Florida State Seminoles five-star freshman defensive end Josh Sweat’s recovery from a torn ACL suffered last fall has gone so well that he has been cleared to play in the team’s Sept. 5 season opener against Texas State.

Coach Jimbo Fisher made the announcement, which was reported on Twitter by Brendan Sonnone of the Orlando Sentinel as well as Tim Linafelt of Seminoles.com.

A former star at Virginia’s Oscar Frommel Smith High School, Sweat was also commended for being one of the most impressive players in camp despite his injury.

Needless to say, so long as the transition at quarterback goes smoothly now that Jameis Winston is in the NFL, FSU could definitely be in the hunt for a College Football Playoff spot so long as the defense holds up, and Sweat could definitely be playing a key role in that.
