Florida State continues to bring in depth to a position of need.

DJ Lundy thought he was down to deciding between Georgia and Virginia Tech as early as last week, but then a Florida State scholarship offer and official visit invitation changed his mind.

The six-foot, 220 pound three-star recruit out of Ocilla, GA is a phenomenal athlete, not just excelling on both sides of the ball, but also on the mat with an 110-4 wrestling record over the last four years. In the 1A Georgia title game, Lundy had three tackles for losses, a sack, a forced fumble and 174 rushing yards.

Florida State, from all early indications, wants him at linebacker.

Scouting Report:

Lundy is truly something else. This is a young man who could have been higher rated had he been fully committed to football. Lundy is a two-time state champion wrestler on top of being a football star. Not only is he a two-sport star but also a two-way star for his football team. Lundy starred at the fullback position in the wing-t offense and middle linebacker.

You get a glimpse of the athleticism when Lundy is carrying the football. He has the hips to bend and wiggle through a small hole in the line. He powers his way through tacklers as well often carrying the pile. When in the open field he has the speed to finish runs.

Lundy has potential on the football field that is untapped. On the defensive side of the ball, Lundy plays just as physical, fast, and fluid. Likely a true middle linebacker and thumper he should be a run game player. The instincts flash on tape that suggest Lundy can read and react to an offense. This is a player whose best football is ahead of him.
