The commitments are coming in quickly as Florida State is approaching National Signing Day next week.
Conway (Ark.) offensive tackle Robert Scott posted on Twitter that he will commit to Florida State on Feb. 5. After thanking his family, friends and high school coaches, Scott mentioned his connection to the FSU staff.
“I want to thank all of the coaches at FSU (especially Coach Norvell, Coach Atkins, and Coach Thomsen for seeing the potential in me to be a great FSU player within their program,” Scott posted.
Scott is a 247Sports three-star offensive tackle who has been committed to Ole Miss. He visited FSU and other schools in January before making his decision.
In addition to Scott, FSU has landed offensive linemen Zane Herring, Thomas Shrader and Lloyd Willis during the early signing period in December. The Seminoles have also added Florida International graduate transfer Devontay Taylor.
On Jan. 15, the Osceola’s Patrick Burnham profiled Scott. Burnham wrote: “It’s easy to see Scott’s potential and why he still has some big-time programs bidding for his services. He is long and lean as his physical stats suggest. Scott is more accomplished as a run blocker at this stage in his development, but his long arms are definitely an asset in pass blocking. He has good but not great feet, but he does an outstanding job of running his feet through contact, establishes inside hands well, and works hard to stay engaged with and finish his blocks. Scott is also very good at working his way up to the second level of the defense and passing off defenders with whomever he is working a combo block. He has some work to do fundamentally and in the weight room but has a good skill set and is a prospect whose best football is in front of him.”
