NoleNation links: Players talk Reid

David Hale and Corey Dowlar write: FSU coach Jimbo Fisher banned players from Twitter recently, but several posted on Facebook about Greg Reid’s dismissal from FSU. While Reid had changed his mindset, several said, his recent arrest proved too much to overcome.

Hale:Insider The Seminoles boast deep talent, albeit mostly younger players, and with a soft early schedule should be able to find replacements for Reid at cornerback and kick returner.

Hale:Insider Quarterback EJ Manuel, who could earn a place in the NFL draft’s first round with a strong season or in its late rounds with a weak season, is today’s subject of NoleNation’s Carrying the Spear series of player profiles.

Dowlar:Insider 2014 ATH Myles Autry of Norcross, Ga., who says he’s in no rush to commit to any school, has received an offer from FSU.
