CB Carlos Becker (in white) orally committed to FSU on Wednesday.



Florida State’s big signing day continued Wednesday morning when Kissimmee Osceola DB Carlos Becker slipped on a Seminoles cap and announced his commitment to FSU.

Becker, a four-star recruit, is 247Sports’ No. 113 player in the country. He chose FSU over Ohio State, among others.

The Noles have announced a few other signees: four-star DB Kyle Meyers, four-star WR Keith Gavin (Crawfordville Wakulla) and five-star DE Brian Burns (Plantation American Heritage).

FSU could add another big target, DL Shavar Manuel. The four-star recruit who started his high school career at Blake High announced that he has decommitted from Florida; he visited FSU last weekend.

The Noles lost four-star ATH Jamel Cook (Miami Central); he flipped to USC. 


As of 10 a.m., FSU has the nation’s No. 5 recruiting class according to 247Sports and was No. 3 in ESPN's team rankings.
