2017 cornerback Stanford Samuels, the No. 4 cornerback and No. 32 overall player in the 2017 class, returned to Florida State for the first time since his unofficial visit for the USF game on September 12th of last year. Samuels, the Seminole legacy whose father played with FSU from 1998-2002, measures in at 6'2, 175 pounds and spent a lot his time on Saturday with a certain Florida State defensive back.
"I've been with Derwin (James), actually, the whole time I was up there."
It does seem that Samuels spent the vast majority of his day with James, who he arrived with this morning. Samuels also spoke on the message that James preached as to why he chose to be a Seminole..
"He told me he has loved Florida State since his freshman year when he committed. He told me it's all love and that it's all a family here. He told me that how they treat you and how they say they will treat you is what they will do. They keep their word."
Samuels also mentioned that he spoke with defensive coordinator Charles Kelly, who encouraged him to keep grinding and working hard.
Despite the attention from Florida State and the forty other schools that have offered him, Samuels intends to wait until National Signing Day next February to declare. He also stated that he intends to take visits in the coming months to UGA, Oklahoma, Maryland, Michigan, and Alabama.
