Florida State football added another South Florida native to its 2018 recruiting class, gaining the verbal commitment of three-star LB Rosendo Louis.

Louis (6’1, 225) is from Deerfield Beach (Fla.) Deerfield Beach High School and is considered the nation’s No. 21 2018 inside linebacker, the 74th best player in the state of Florida, and No. 454, nationally according to 247 composite rankings. Recruited to the Seminoles by linebackers coach Bill Miller, Louis is the 18th player to pledge to FSU’s 2018 class, but just the second LB, and the first ILB.

A couple dozen schools have already offered Louis, and he chose the ’Noles over offers from Miami, Oklahoma, Georgia, LSU, NC State, Wisconsin, Ole Miss, Auburn, and North Carolina, among others.

It’s still relatively early, but Louis’ commitment means that exactly half of Florida State’s current 2018 class, which includes 18 commitments, is comprised of three-star recruits. But again, these players still have an entire season of high school ball to play.

FSU’s 2018 is still inside the top-10 and second in the ACC behind Miami.
