Levenberry Stays With Florida State

Highy-touted Florida State linebacker commit E.J. Levenberry stays put.

Over the past few weeks Florida State commit E.J. Levenberry had many on the edge of their seats in anticipation of his final decision. With the coaching changes in Tallahassee, will the highly-touted linebacker remain a Seminole or will he make the switch?

He decided to stick with the Seminoles, but not after some tense deliberation.

In an effort to "leave-no-stone-unturned", Levenberry took an official visit to Tennessee and the response was positive.

"Tennessee has the facilities and everything to win a National Championship," Levenberry's father said at the time.

When Florida State lost assistant Mark Stoops along with assistant D.J. Elliot, it threw a wrench into the process, but at the end of the day, FSU is his home away from home as he joins fellow All-Met standouts Eddie Goldman and Ronald Darby.

"Eddie Goldman is a homeboy," Levenberry said. "They have a dominate D-Line there, and coach Haggins is known for his defensive line and those guys take up two block,s so I will be open to make plays. I think that's very good. We also got Ronald Darby as a defensive back, and having him out there means I can blitz and feel comfortable that he will get the pick."

Levenberry closed his senior campaign with 124 tackles.
