The Florida State Seminoles have received a huge addition to their 2013 class after four-star in-state defensive tackle Keith Bryant made a signing day announcement that he will commit to Florida State over two other major programs in South Carolina and FSU’s rival Miami. All three teams were close in the race as finalists, but most people expected FSU to land the four-star DT.
Bryant is a standout for Atlantic and has been racking up big numbers for a few years now. A solid sack-artist and an overall disruptive playmaker on the interior of the defensive line, Bryant is rated as one of the top 200 prospects in the country and is arguably one of the best 15 recruits at the defensive tackle position in the 2013 recruiting class. There is little doubt, however, that he is an extremely talented player and more than deserves all four stars. According to most recruiting publications, Bryant is one of the top 30 players in the ridiculously talent-rich state of Florida.
Florida State, Miami, South Carolina, and even Florida Atlantic got official visits from the former Miami standout. A source stated that Bryant was a near-lock for FSU and a huge longshot for the U, and that source has now been proven correct with the four-star DTs announcement.
Bryant is 6’2″, 302 pounds and is the 21st commit in what is easily one of the top ten recruiting classes assembled in 2013 by Jimbo Fisher and the rest of the staff down in Tallahassee. And to think, the Noles 2014 class is probably going to be even better.
