Star safety Cyrus Fagan commits to FSU

The defensive backfield has been a position group of strength for some time in Tallahassee. And it just got stronger.

The 'Noles certainly aren't hurting at the safety spot. A year after hauling in the nation's top safety in Derwin James, Florida State today secured a commitment from the No. 3 safety in the country, Cyrus Fagan of Daytona Beach's Mainland High School. After camping at FSU last summer and visiting in November for the NC State game, Fagan pulled the trigger for the Seminoles following Florida State's second 2016 Junior Day.

Fagan (6', 170), is a rangy, ball-hawking four-star prospect who was recruited to Tallahassee by Rick Trickett and Charles Kelly. He's been courted by elite programs from across the country, as he also has offers from Alabama, Florida, Miami, LSU, USC, Ohio State, Clemson, Auburn, and Georgia, as well as others. He's been considered a heavy-FSU lean for quite some time, and the 'Noles were able to withstand some recent pressure from the 'Canes to gain his commitment over the weekend. He joins former Mainland teammate A.J. Westbrook in the Seminole secondary.
