FSU’s 2020 recruiting class is off to a great start; after landing stud QB Jeff Sims yesterday they’ve landed four-star outside linebacker Stephen Dix, Jr. today. This weekend’s Junior Day visit continues to pay dividends for Florida State as this is the second commitment resulting from the event.
Although the recruiting rankings are very early Dix ranks 270th nationally in 247’s 2020 composite rankings, 20th at his position, & 45th within the state of Florida. He chose FSU over offers from Florida, Michigan, Clemson, Ohio State, and many others.
The 6’0 215 lb. product of Dr. Phillips High School in Orlando, FL is the second blue-chip linebacker to join #Tribe20, following Wakulla product Keyshawn Greene. FSU landed some good linebackers in its 2019 class, but it continues to remain a big position of need for the Seminoles.
Linebackers Coach Raymond Woodie Jr. took the lead in Dix’s recruitment, but it was a team effort in bringing him into the fold. FSU’s 2020 recruiting class now ranks seventh nationally with six commitments, five being of the blue-chip variety.
