Yesterday, the Seminoles landed the country's No. 12 safety in four-star talent Daniel Wright, just a day after gaining a commitment from 2108 DB Isaiah Bolden. Today, they added the No. 3 cornerback in the country, five-star legacy Stanford Samuels III of Flanagan High School in Hollywood, FL.
We last saw Samuels at Florida State's Junior Day on February 27, but he's been no stranger to Tallahassee, having visited for the South Florida game last year, as well as showing out at Jimbo Fisher camp in July. Samuels' commitment continues the recent trend of the Seminoles pursuing lengthy DBs, as he, Wright, and elite safety commit Cyrus Fagan stand 6-2. Add them to the 6-2 Carlos Becker that the 'Noles signed this past cycle, along with 6-3 Derwin James, and FSU's pursuit of length -- and utterly superior talent -- in the defensive backfield is more than evident.
Samuels, who is now the highest ranked player in the Seminoles' 2017 class, was recruited to Florida State by Bill Miller and Charles Kelly.
