 Jared Verse, Florida State, Player News

  03/09/23 - DE Jared VerserJr/2024, Florida State, 6-4, 254 (DS#2 DE) + More +

  Jared Verse spent last week watching the NFL Scouting Combine, not as a participant but as an observer. It wasn't exactly the way many assumed the talented Florida State edge rusher would make his presence known. At one point, the 6-foot-4, 253-pound defensive end was projected as a first-round selection after a stellar first FBS season in which he led the team in tackles for loss (16.5), sacks (9) and blocked kicks (1). "I always wanted him to feel like he was doing what was best for himself," said defensive ends coach John Papuchis. "So when it came time for him to make that decision, I made a conscious effort not to weigh in too much on it other than if he asked me my opinion on something or my advice. I wanted him to come back. "I love coaching him, but I wanted him to do what was best for him. So I was super excited when he made that decision. Now the work starts."

The decision to return to FSU came down to Verse believing he could improve. He could overwhelm offensive linemen with his athleticism, but there had to be more to help him unleash his true potential. "It was getting better on the technical side of things," said Verse. "Physically, I could have left and gone to the NFL and been fine, but it's the mental side of things where I need to get better. That was something Coach [Mike] Norvell hammered home to me." It's a belief justified by watching participants in last week's Combine. "Everybody wants to get stronger, faster and bigger, but I want to be able to read the game a little bit quicker," Verse said. "At the next level, it's a lot quicker. Even at the Combine, those guys are a lot quicker. Everybody is a lot quicker than this level right now. I just have to read the game a little quicker to be prepared for that." - Orlando Sentinel

  Florida State standout defensive end Jared Verse, a projected first-round NFL draft pick, announced Saturday he is staying for another season. After two stellar seasons at Albany in the Football Championship Subdivision, Verse was the most coveted player in the NCAA transfer portal in 2022. He landed in Tallahassee and proved he could play at the Power Five level. He earned first-team All-Atlantic Coast Conference honors after leading Florida State with 14 1/2 tackles for loss, including 7 1/2 sacks, despite missing one game because of injury and being limited in several others.

He joins quarterback Jordan Travis, leading rusher Trey Benson and leading receiver Johnny Wilson in returning to play for coach Mike Norvell - and it could make the Seminoles (10-3) potential title contenders in 2023. "Obviously, the money is a big factor in it. But my biggest factor was, "What can I improve on?" Verse told ESPN after announcing his decision. "I just have to look at myself and say, 'OK, every day, I've still got a lot to improve on, I've still got a lot to be better at. "I did what was best for me, and what was best for me was coming back and competing with my team." - AP College Football

  2022 ALL-ACC FOOTBALL FIRST TEAM: DE - Jared Verse, Florida State, 163 votes,...Verse, from Dayton, Ohio, made an impact in his first season with Florida State, leading FSU with 7.5 sacks and 14.5 tackles for loss, with 41 tackles, a blocked field goal and a fumble recovery. Verse finished in the Top 5 in the conference in both sacks and tackles for loss. Against LSU, Verse was named ACC Defensive Lineman of the Week after all three of his tackles were for a loss, including 2.0 sacks. He added a blocked field goal against the Tigers - the first of his FSU career - as FSU went on to win, 24-23. Outside of the two games he was injured, Verse had at least 0.5 tackles for loss in every game and had three games with at least 2.5 tackles for loss. He recovered a fumble at Miami and returned it 10 yards as FSU beat the Hurricanes, 45-3. Verse is the second Seminole defensive end in as many seasons to be named to the first team in his first year - Jermaine Johnson II was the ACC Defensive Player of the Year in 2021. - Florida State Football

  The Seminoles would love Verse to make the same kind of impact as Jermaine Johnson, another transfer defensive lineman who came over from Georgia and performed well enough his lone year at Florida State to get selected by the New York Jets with the 26th overall pick. Verse had 14 ½ sacks and 21 1/2 tackle for loss in 15 games at Albany before moving up to the Football Bowl Subdivision level. Another transfer pass rusher to watch is Nebraska’s Ochaun Mathis, a second-team all-Big 12 pick each of the last two seasons at TCU. - AP College Football
