Four-star linebacker Stevenson commits to FSU

Florida State's recruiting efforts have been in overdrive lately with three new commitments so far this week. The first came from from New Orleans, La. offensive lineman Ryan Hoefeld and then on Tuesday cornerback Adrian Baker from Hollywood, Fla. officially became an FSU pledge.

On Wednesday, the floodgates continued to flow as Seminoles secured a commitment from four-star linebacker Freddie Stevenson from Bartow, Fla.

"I actually talked with Coach (Greg) Hudson the linebackers coach earlier today just to chat. Then I decided later this afternoon that I didn't want to wait any longer. So I called Coach Fisher up and told him I'm ready to be a Seminole. He was super excited screaming in the phone," explained Stevenson.

In addition to raving about his June visit, the four-star defender said it was the comfort he felt with the entire FSU coaching staff that sold him, especially his bond with Jimbo Fisher.

"He just explained how much they wanted me in their 4-3 defense and how I could be used. I just felt really comfortable with Coach Fisher," said Stevenson. "I felt at home with everyone. I've been thinking about it for a while, but my family wanted me to wait to make sure but after today I'm done and it's a big relief."

The 6-foot-1, 220 pound prospect says he will be coming in as an outside linebacker. He becomes commitment No. 16 for the Seminoles' 2013 recruiting class.
