Fredrica Academy (Ga.) Saint Simons Island 2019 athlete `Jashawn Sheffield picked up an offer from Florida State today. Sheffield now has 8 major division one offers before his sophomore year of high school.
Sheffield couldn't be happier about picking up this offer.
"I was speechless," Sheffield said. "It's a great feeling because this has always been my school that I wanted to come to. I like it. I'm really happy."
Despite getting the offer he always wanted, Sheffield is going to play out the recruiting process.
"I'm going to commit my senior year," Sheffield said. "My mind might change by then so I'm going to wait it out and see how it goes."
During his visit he talked to Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher, defensive ends coach Brad Lawing, who recruits his area, and running back coach Jay Graham. The best part of his visit was talking to Jimbo Fisher.
"Seeing him on T.V. I was like,' I'm going to play here one day,'" Sheffield said. "I got to talk to him finally and he offered me. I'm just happy about that."
The 6-foot-1, 176-pound athlete says that Florida State and Tennessee are tied for him since the Vols gave him his first offer.
Sheffield plans to take a visit to Florida State for one of the spring practices.
