The Florida State Seminoles welcomed dozens of the nation’s most talented recruits on Saturday at their junior day event and built momentum early in the afternoon by securing the commitment of Class of 2020 defensive back Jadarius McKnight.
Despite it being junior day, the sophomore was on campus visiting Florida State, who he also already deemed his dream school. And apparently he’s seen enough to warrant taking himself off the market by pledging to the Seminoles and new coach Willie Taggart, according to a report from Michael Langston of Warchant.com.
The 6-foot, 195-pound athlete already sports an incredibly impressive offer list. He chose Florida State over Notre Dame, Oregon, Miami, Auburn and Tennessee, among others.
Obviously, the Seminoles have two recruiting cycles to hold onto McKnight, but it’s clear that the feels a strong pull to Florida State if he’s committing almost two full calendar years before he has to make an official decision.
McKnight is now the first member of the Florida State recruiting Class of 2020. He’ll first be eligible to sign during the early signing period in December of 2019.
He received his Florida State offer while on his visit to Tallahassee and committed on the spot.
