With National Signing Day finally here, Florida State received a commitment from receiver Jordan Young, one of the biggest targets left on the board.

Young is a player who saw his recruiting stock soar in recent weeks. At the beginning of the month, his only FBS offer was from Coastal Carolina. But then Tennessee swooped in, offering the Georgia native and causing several recruiting sites to re-evaluate him to a composite 3-star prospect.

Despite committing to Tennessee, Young visited Florida State for the final recruiting weekend, along with several other highly ranked recruits. In the end, Willie Taggart and his staff convinced Young to flip his commitment to the ’Noles.

At 6-3, 185 pounds, Young is an athletic freak. He is the Georgia 6A state champ in the 110M hurdles and caught 17 touchdowns as a high school senior, the latter of which earned him Second-Team All-Georgia in one of the most talented states in the nation.

For Florida State, this is a huge commitment at a position of need for the Seminoles. With Auden Tate moving on to the NFL, senior Nyqwan Murray is the only receiver returning with any sort of consistent production.
