Bacon pledges to Florida State
Dwayne Bacon arrived in Tallahassee (Fla.) on Friday night for his official visit to Florida State. While he still had two more days on campus, Bacon, a five-star wing out of Mouth of Wilson (Va.) Oak Hill Academy, couldn’t resist pulling the trigger. Bacon informed Scout.com that he verbally committed to Leonard Hamilton and his staff. "I feel like it's a great fit for me and I'll make an impact right away," Bacon told Scout.com. Bacon also strongly considered Oklahoma State, SMU, USF, USC, Tennessee and Georgia Tech. What made the Seminoles stick out from the pack? "Just coach [Hamilton] being straight forward with me," Bacon said. "It's great," he added about his relationship with Hamilton. "He tells the truth up front and thinks I can help them a lot with what he's trying to do." One of the elite scorers in the 2015 class, Bacon has very good size, strength and athleticism for the wing position. He’s a confident scorer that is comfortable scoring off the bounce or taking perimeter players to the post. Florida State now has a trio of commitments in their 2015 recruiting class. Bacon joins four-star prospects Malik Beasley and Terance Mann to make up their current class, which now ranks No. 5 in country. Bacon is ranked as the No. 5 small forward and the No. 19 overall prospect in 2015.
