Long-time Florida State commit Jordan Eubanks made it official Wednesday morning when he signed with the Seminoles:
Eubanks, a 6’3 212 pound linebacker from Guyer High School in Denton, TX has an 86 rating (3-star) from the 247 Sports Composite List. He’s their 931st best player (57th best OLB and 130th best player in TX).
He chose FSU in late May over the Arizona Wildcats, Arkansas Razorbacks, Colorado Buffaloes, Michigan State Spartans, and Pittsburgh Panthers.

Versatility is the thing that stood out for Coach AB when scouting Eubanks:
When you turn on a player’s highlight tape, and he plays three different positions, you know he brings hidden value. Eubanks played safety, linebacker, and “Star”, while also demonizing opponents on special teams. That kind of responsibility requires athleticism, intelligence, and selflessness. Those sound like traits Mike Norvell has spoken about since arriving at FSU. The consensus at Tomahawk Nation is that Eubanks will play the “Stud”, a hybrid LB/S role at Florida State.
From his FSU bio:
