Florida State landed another commitment Monday, this time from a versatile athlete. Jashaun Corbin, of Melbourne (Fla.) Holy Trinity Episcopal Academy committed, writing:
“First and foremost, I would like to thank the man upstairs for blessing me with many opportunities to play college football! Second, I would like to thank my family, coaches, and friends who’ve been with me since the start and helped me through everything! I would like to thank all of the coaches who have given me the chance to play at their Universities. But at this time I am blessed to say I am committed to play football and further my education at Florida State University! This is a dream come true and I’m ready to work! #Go Noles #Tribe18”
Corbin is primarily a running back, but at 6’0, could also play receiver or defensive back. He rushed 107 times for 1022 yards in 2016, and caught 25 passes for 619 yards. Corbin was formerly committed to Tennessee.
Corbin is rated a three-star recruit, and the No. 382 player nationally, which is close to four-star status. Florida State already has commitments from running backs James Cook, of Miami, and Charles Strong, from just outside Gainesville. Having the ability to play multiple positions could certainly come in handy, considering Florida State signed three of the top ten running backs in the country in the 2017 class, including Cam Akers, ZaQuandre White, and Khalan Laborn.
FSU now has nine commitments, and five of them are rated in the top-10 nationally at their positions.
