Florida State flips blue-chip safety Hamsah Nasirildeen

FSU flips the four-star safety from North Carolina.

Earlier on Sunday, 2017 four-star safety Hamsah Nasirildeen flipped his commitment from South Carolina to Florida State. The defensive back from Concord (NC.) was previously committed to SC since August of 2016.

Before his official commitment to FSU on Sunday, the 6’3 210 lb. high school senior had visited Tallahassee three times, attending Junior Day, summer camp and making an official visit, all in 2016. Leading his recruiting process was Jay Graham, running backs coach.

Nasirildeen participated in the latest Army All-American Bowl, recording four tackles on the winning team. Also on that East team was Florida State early enrollee RB Cam Akers and WR commit D.J. Matthews.

In the final 247 Composite rankings before National Signing Day, Nasirildeen is ranked the No. 111 overall prospect in the nation and the No. 10 OLB. Additionally, he is ranked the No. 1 overall player in North Carolina. Despite the OLB classification, he is expected to play safety at FSU.

Besides Florida State and South Carolina, Nasirildeen had offers from many top-tier schools including Clemson, Georgia, Michigan, Penn State and Tennessee —- just some of his 20 total offers.

Nasirildeen is the second safety in FSU’s 2017 recruiting class, joining four-star Cyrus Fagan. The Seminoles now have a total of 22 commitments and their rank rose to No. 5 in the nation and No. 1 in the ACC.
