Mavety makes his choice

Garden City (N.Y) Nassau Community College 2014 4-star JUCO OT Chad Mavety had over 20 offers when he narrowed it down to Florida State and Ohio State. Today the 6-foot-6, 330-pound tackle narrowed it down even further when he made his commitment to Florida State. Mavety feels like Florida State can continue what they are doing next year and feels he can step in immediately.

"It was the best decision for me," Mavety said.

"Florida State is elite right now. They will only have a few holes next year, and I feel like I can step into one of them. It's all about winning. I also really enjoyed the campus and Tallahassee." Mavety had great things to say about his future offensive line coach.

"[Offensive line] coach [Rick] Trickett is a cool dude," Mavety said. "He is a great coach. He has been doing this a long time. He is proven." Both coach Trickett and head coach Jimbo Fisher made it known that Mavety was a top priority for this recruiting class.

"They kept telling me how important I am to their recruiting class," Mavety said. "They told me that I am needed. That I am a big piece of the puzzle for next season."

Mavety is ready to get down to Tallahassee and meet his new team.

"I'm looking forward to getting to know my teammates," Mavety said. "I'm ready to get on the football field down there and help bring a Championship.

There have been conflicting report of whether Mavety is still an early enrollee.

"I'm enrolling in January," Mavety said.

Mavety is the No. 5 rated Junior College tackle in the nation and his commitment is the 24th for the Seminoles 2014 class.
