Florida State landed a massive offensive line commitment on Friday night.
Aliou Bah, who is 6-foot-6 and 325 pounds, made his pledge to FSU on Twitter. The Bradenton (Fla.) IMG Academy standout is a 247Sports three-star prospect. He is viewed as the No. 47 tackle in the nation.
“He is a versatile lineman who can play tackle or guard,” Osceola recruiting analyst Charles Fishbein said. “Like to see him get on his blocks and learn to finish more. Does a pretty good job of using his hands.”
“He lined up at guard most of the time as a junior,” said Osceola football analyst Patrick Burnham. “He bends well for a guy his size and is a physical run blocker. Bah has tendency to play too high at times and is more advanced as a run blocker at this stage in his development. He could be a dominant blocker in the run game if he learns to play with better leverage and technique. He has decent but not great feet. The same can be said for his athleticism. He needs to improve on his ability to move laterally in pass protection if the plan is to play him at offensive tackle in college. Because of this I think he projects better as a guard at the FBS level. His best football is still ahead of him. As bad as FSU needs numbers on the offensive line this is a solid start for Mike Norvell and offensive line coach Alex Atkins.”

Prior to his commitment Bah was reported to have scheduled an official visit to Michigan State for June 18th. It is unknown at this time whether his commitment will have an impact on that trip. Bah is scheduled to make an official visit to Florida State on June 11th.
Florida, Oklahoma, Penn State, Texas and Texas A&M all have offered the rising senior and were among his list of favorites Bah announced as favorites this past March along with FSU.
FSU has the No. 11 class in the nation and No. 1 in the ACC in 2022, according to 247Sports.
