Jadarius McKnight was the second recruit to join Florida State’s 2020 class, and today, he made it official.
The four-star safety out of Dunbar High School in Fort Myers committed to FSU in February 2018, a sought-after prospect already at that point after securing offers from schools like Notre Dame, Auburn and Miami (FL). He’s a dual-sport athlete that’s got a spot on Florida State’s track team who overcame a post-injury illness called compartment syndrome that took away half of his football season.
He visited Tallahassee this last weekend, getting acquainted with new head coach Mike Norvell. McKnight has called Florida State his dream school throughout the entire process, not wavering even during a brief period of coaching uncertainty, and felt so strongly about his pledge that he switched his signing day to today rather than waiting till February, something he was planning to do as recently as Sunday.
