FSU recruiting rundown, 2/29


Florida State made plenty of noise over the weekend in the world of recruiting. Here are some of the latest developments for the Seminoles:

*Cyrus Fagan is among the most talented safeties in the 2017 class, and on Sunday, he announced that he’d be playing college football at a program that produces a lot of NFL defensive backs. The Daytona Beach, Florida, native shared the news on Twitter:

Rated the No. 55 overall junior in the country according to 247Sports’ composite rankings, Fagan claimed offers from Alabama, Louisville, Tennessee and others. He is one of seven players committed to FSU’s 2017 group.

*According to multiple reports, the Seminoles picked up their first commitment in the 2018 class on Sunday when Gainesville, Florida, running back Charles Strong made the call. The 6-1, 220-pound running back will add plenty of size to Florida State’s backfield.

Per MaxPreps, Strong rushed for 476 yards and nine touchdowns as a sophomore at P.K. Yonge High School this past fall.

*Jimbo Fisher and his staff also landed their first commitment of the 2019 cycle this weekend. On Saturday, Michael Langston of Warchant.com reported that defensive end Michael Morris of West Palm Beach, Florida, pledged to FSU.

The son of former Seminole offensive lineman Mike Morris, Michael registered 55 total tackles as a freshman at Cardinal Newman High School, according to MaxPreps.
