‘Noles continue to hoard touted D-linemen

Derrick Nnadi

With an embarrassment of riches along the defensive line already in place thanks to the past few recruiting classes, Florida State has continued to add talent to that existing stockpile.

Via Twitter Wednesday morning, Virginia Beach (Va.) defensive tackle Derrick Nnadi announced that he has “DECIDED TO SPEND THE NEXT 4-5 YEARS AT THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA STATE #NOLENATION.”  Those are Nnadi’s all-caps, not mine, incidentally.

The four-star lineman opted for the Seminoles over home state Virginia Tech.  Ohio State, Penn State and Virginia Tech were also on Nnadi’s radar as he had previously taken all five of his official visits.

The Roanoke Times wrote that “Nnadi was long considered a Virginia Tech lean (his dad went to Tech)” and that “[h]e would have been the highest-ranked recruit in the Hokies’ class.” rated Nnadi as the No. 4 defensive tackle and the No. 81 player at any position in the country.  The addition of Nnadi will do nothing but bolster FSU’s 2014 class, which is currently ranked fifth in the nation by Rivals.

    Good pick up for the “University of Florida State” (UFS?), but I always think it adds a certain extra touch when recruits say the name of the school they’re committing to correctly.
