Dulkys Ends Recruitment; Will Play In The ACC

With signing day rapidly approaching a number of 2008 prospects are flying off the board and on Monday Deividas Dulkys joined the committed group.

Late Monday evening Deividas Dulkys decided it was time to end his recruitment. The Henderson (Nev.) Findlay Prep standout picked Florida State, which was one of the first high major schools that made him a priority.

"They've been in there for a quite a while and were one of the schools that have been trailing him throughout the summer and I think that had a lot to do with it," Findlay Prep assistant coach Todd Simon said. "He had a good comfort level with that staff."

Over the summer interest in Dulkys grew, and by the end of July San Diego State, California and FSU were heavily in the mix. Recently a number of other schools got involved including Tennessee and Connecticut.

With a number of options, Dulkys went with the school that was there first. According to Simon, the 6-foot-4, 180-pound wing felt more at ease with the Seminoles than any of the other programs involved.

"He's very comfortable with Florida State and he likes what they are doing out there," Simon said. "I think he just kind of came to the point where they met all his needs and he went ahead and pulled the trigger."

"They were very aggressive with Deividas and were up here religiously and were very thorough with their recruitment of him and I think that was one of the major factors," he said. "I think he felt good with the staff there and I think he enjoyed the guys when he took the visit."

Dulkys is the Seminoles third commitment in the 2008 class, as he joins Luke Loucks and Xavier Gibson. FSU is also heavily involved with Chris Singleton, who is slated to make his decision next week.
