Christo Kourtzidis: Florida State Seminoles Commitment

Christo Kourtzidis, one of the the top tight ends in the country has committed to the Florida State Seminoles.  Christo Kourtzidis is from Lutheran High School in Orange, California.  He has visited FSU at least two times this off-season and bonded well enough with the coaching staff to pull the trigger.

Kourtzidis is 6'4.5" and 240 pounds, with the frame to play north of 260 pounds.  He's not going to stretch the field vertically, but is a great complement to Nick O'Leary, who signed with FSU last cycle and is expected to be a hybrid tight end, lining up all over the field.  With Kourtzidis as the in-line tight end and O'Leary as the multi-purpose tight end, FSU has an excellent pair of tight ends.  

And as FSU fans have seen recently, playing tight end takes intelligence.  The 'Noles had to gamble on some tight end prospects in the latter years of the 'Lost Decade,' but now the 'Noles seem to have their pick o' the litter.  The coaches obviously feel comfortable that Kourtzidis can handle the offense.

Kourtzidis is rated a 4-star prospect by 247 (#5 TE), Scout (#7 TE), and Rivals (#8 TE), and a 3-star prospect by ESPN (#24 TE).  'Nole fans have to be happy about snagging a tight end whom three of the four services claim is one of the 10-best in the country.  He also held offers from Alabama, Florida, Nebraska, and Oklahoma.

Kourtzidis is FSU's 11th commitment of the 2012 cycle and he certainly won't hurt FSU's chances of again landing one of the top classes in the country.
