Jameis Winston commits to Florida State

Jameis Winston, 5 star Florida State QB commit

Jameis Winston, the 5 star QB from Alabama, has committed to Florida State. Since the summer, Winston has been debating between Florida State and Alabama. The belief is that he was debating between playing in his home state of Alabama and playing for one of the best QB coaches in the nation in Jimbo Fisher. He made a late visit to Alabama in late July. Florida State finally won out.

Jameis has very few flaws to his game. He's rated the best dual-threat quarterback in the nation. He passed for over 2300 yards and rushed for another 800 in his 13 game junior season. He only threw three interceptions on the year. His arm strength is good, his running ability is tremendous, and his leadership is one of the most impressive things about his game. During the summer, he was paired up and was buddy-buddy with what could be his future mentor EJ Manuel at the Elite 11 QB camp. His accuracy might be his one downfall. Still, he was the best QB at the Elite 11 camp, and Jimbo Fisher is getting a good one.

The only downside to Winston is the potential that he could play pro baseball. He has the potential to be drafted high and stiff the college team he signs with, e.g. Joe Mauer. He could also play baseball in the spring, and football in the fall. Nick Saban is against his QBs playing any other sport, this probably helped lead Winston to pick Florida State. Nonetheless, this is a great signing for Florida State, and the highest rated QB signing for FSU since 2004 with Xavier Lee (hope I didn't just jinx it).  Check out film after the jump.
