For the second straight recruiting cycle, FSU's class includes the top player from Virginia Beach-- and the entire state of Virginia, for that matter. The 2016 class was headed up by the nation's top cornerback, Levonta Taylor, and after the Seminoles' most recent commitment, a former teammate of his has bolstered the 2017 class. Khalan Laborn, the nation's No. 2 all-purpose back, just pledged his services to Jimbo Fisher and the 'Noles. In this deep year for running backs, he's the second committed to Florida State, joining fellow four-star prospect Zaquandre White.
The 'Noles were on Laborn (5-9, 193), a composite four-star prospect, from the jump, as only Rutgers offered him earlier. They were also able to get him to campus quickly, as he visited for Jimbo Fisher camp last summer and pulled the trigger while at The Opening today. His commitment is far from surprising, as the 'Noles once again beat out Virginia Tech for an elite VA talent. In addition to the 'Noles and Hokies, Laborn also boasts offers from Alabama, Auburn, Miami, Ohio State, Ole Miss, Tennessee, Georgia, and Miami.
