LB Brian Bell, OG Cole Minshew commit to Florida State Seminoles


The Florida State Seminoles hosted one of their annual Junior days on Saturday.

Top juniors from all over the southeast (and the entire country for that matter) traveled to Tallahassee to take part in a camp and see the facilities. Obviously, the Florida State coaching staff rolls out the red carpet for elite recruits and the Seminoles usually land a few commitments.

Two recruits in the class of 2015 gave their pledge to the defending national champions on Saturday.

3-star linebacker Brian Bell and 3-star offensive guard Cole Minshew committed to the Seminoles.

The 6’2, 218-pound Bell attends Lowndes High School in Valdosta, Georgia, the same school that produced former Seminoles Greg Reid and Telvin Smith.

Bell has been a Seminole lean for some time, visiting a couple times during the season. He is considered the 31st ranked outside linebacker prospect, 47th best overall prospect in Georgia and the 546th best overall prospect in the class of 2015, according to 24/7 Sports’ composite rankings.  He chose the Seminoles over a couple of Atlantic Division rivals, the Clemson Tigers and Louisville Cardinals, among others.

Minshew, who is 6’4 and 305 pounds, attends Coffee High School in Douglas, Georgia. He is considered the 24th best offensive guard prospect, the 41st best prospect in Georgia and the 463rd best overall prospect in the class of 2015.

He chose the Seminoles over offers from the Miami Hurricanes and Mississippi State Bulldogs, among others.

The Seminoles now have seven commitments in the class of 2015.
