De'Asian Richardson Commits To Florida State Seminoles

De'Asian Richardson, a jumbo defensive end recruit from Orange Park (Fla.) High School, has committed to the Florida State Seminoles. With recent offers from Alabama, Duke, Louisville, Penn State, Mississippi, North and South Carolina, Richardson is one of the fastest-rising prospects in the country. 247sports is the only service to rate Richardson at this early juncture, and they give him a rating of four stars and call him a top-ten defensive end prospect.

Florida State has made it well known that it wants big defensive ends, and Richardson definitely fits the bill. At 6'4" and 270 pounds, many schools would attempt to move him to defensive tackle. And there is no doubt he will face negative recruiting and be told, falsely, that FSU intends to move him to the defensive tackle spot, just as schools falsely told Mario Edwards Jr. last season. But Edwards Jr. is slated to get lots of playing time as a freshman at end, and that should silence some of that negative recruiting.

Richardson is a tremendous athlete, as you can see from the film. He is a bit raw, but athletes with this combination of size athleticism are rare. He also plays tight end for his high school team. And while too big to play tight end in college, some even believe he can play offensive line. His offer from Duke also speaks well of his academic qualifications. He is the seventh commitment of the season for the Florida State Seminoles
