Richy Klepal, a top offensive line recruit, committed to Florida State Tuesday. Klepal stars for Tampa (Fla.) Plant High School, a powerhouse in the Sunshine State.

Klepal is rated three or four stars by the recruiting services, and is one of the better offensive linemen in the state. He also holds offers from Georgia and Miami. He also holds offers from Michigan State, Missouri and North and South Carolina.

He stands 6'4 and 285 pounds and profiles as a guard in college, though he could grow into a tackle.

Klepal came on late in the 2011 season, helping Plant to an upset of Miramar High for the state title. He'll look to continue his stellar play in 2012. Klepal is athletic for his size, comfortable in space and while pulling, and as the season wore on, became nastier.

Klepal will begin recruiting for Florida State and will attend the Jimbo Fisher camp Wednesday through Friday.

In spring, Klepal had this to say about Florida State:

I love Coach Trickett. He's tough and funny, and I want to spend time with him and the coaching staff in a relaxed atmosphere and watch some film and really just get to know them more. I want to see how our football minds work together and be able to compare a little bit and see what really fits best," Klepal said of Florida State and its coaches.

He is Florida State's fourth offensive lineman and the 18th overall in the 2013 class. Florida State will take between 24 and 30 players in the class.
