Florida State added to its 2016 class Wednesday morning as linebacker recruit Tyree Horton jumped aboard. Horton originally played high school ball at Homestead (Fla.) South Dade, where he was a very active player. But he ended up at Highland (Ks.) Community College due to academics.

After a strong season in junior college, Horton picked up offers from Indiana and Arizona State, before Florida State offered him earlier this week.

Florida State needs to sign two or three linebackers in the class of 2016, and Horton is the second linebacker commitment along with Emmett Rice. He is as of yet unrated, but comes in at 6'0 or 6'1, depending on where you look, and around 220 pounds.

His Hudl film shows a player who is very athletic and quick to the football. Horton plays as a nickel linebacker type and shows good range, going sideline to sideline, and can deliver a blow. He could be an asset to Florida State's defense against spread teams.

Horton is the 10th commitment for the Seminoles, who project to have yet another top-five class in 2016.
