Under head coach Jimbo Fisher, the Florida State Seminoles have become an absolute monster on the recruiting trail. Now that Fisher and the Seminoles have a National Championship under the belt, they may become even more of a force.
They entered Monday with 18 commitments and still had a class ranked in the top 10.
On Monday afternoon, the Seminoles earned their 19th commitment when one of the country’s top running backs, 4-Star Johnny Frasier gave his pledge to the Seminoles. The 5’11, 200-pounder is from Princeton, North Carolina and attends Princeton High School. Although the Seminoles are also expected to receive a commitment from another 4-Star running back, Jacques Patrick, Frasier still pulled the trigger.
Frasier was fantastic last season – he rushed for 3,042 yards and 45 touchdowns and had another 555 yards and five touchdowns on 25 receptions.
Frasier announced his commitment via twitter.

Frasier is ranked as the country’s ninth-best running back prospect, the third-best prospect in the state of North Carolina and the 87th-best overall prospect in the class of 2015 according to 24/7 Sports’ composite rankings (he is the number one ranked running back according to 24/7 Sports).
Frasier was offered by the Seminoles back in February and attended their junior day a few weeks later. He holds offers from just about every school in the country, including the Alabama Crimson Tide, Florida Gators, Georgia Bulldogs, LSU Tigers, Miami Hurricanes, Ohio State Buckeyes and South Carolina Gamecocks, among others.
The Seminoles’ class now ranks fifth in the country and second in the ACC (Clemson Tigers).
