With Florida State's second Junior Day of the year just underway, the Seminoles have already seen their first commitment of the day. It comes in the form of 2019 defensive end/tight end Michael Morris out of Cardinal Newman (FL) High School in West Palm Beach per a report by Warchant's Michael Langston.

Morris, who measures 6'5, 230 pounds despite being only a freshman in high school, had a successful first season that saw him total 55 total tackles (47 solo) and 26.5 tackles for loss, according to stats provided by Max Preps.

Additionally, Morris is a legacy at Florida State, following in his father's footsteps after his dad played on the offensive line with the Seminoles in the late 1980s.

Morris, who shared his decision to commit to Florida State not long after arriving at Junior Day in Tallahassee, is the first 2019 recruit to commit to FSU and could pave the way for future recruits from the 2019 recruiting class.
