Pembroke Pines (Fla.) Flanagan 4-star cornerback Stanford Samuels III visited Florida State Seminoles again on Saturday. Samuels has been to Florida State hundreds of times since he was little with his father playing for the Seminoles from 1998-2003.
This time, Samuels was able to spend a lot of time with some of the Florida State players. He spent most of his time with one player in particular.
"I've been here a couple times," Samuels said. "Got to see the campus again. Got to chill with some new guys. Actually I've been with Derwin [James] this whole time I've been up here. So just chilling with some of the guys on the team. Interacting with some of the coaches like I always do. Got a chance to talk with coach Fisher again. I mean, it's just great. Having some of the guys, seeing some of the guys I compete with, that I see at all these events and these tournaments and stuff. Just seeing them up here at this Junior day was great."
Safety Derwin James, who burst onto the scene as a true freshman last year for the Seminoles, told Samuels about how much of a family the Florida State team is.
"He told me that he loved Florida State since his ninth grade year when he committed," Samuels said. "He told me that it's all love. It's all a family here. That's mainly why he chose it. The family atmosphere. He told me that how they treat you, and how they tell you they treat you is what they're going to do. They keep their word. He makes sure that he tells me that all the time."
Samuels got to talk at length with coach Kelly, but that's nothing new. The two talk quite a bit.
"I was actually with coach Kelly just now," Samuels said. "But me and coach Kelly talk all the time. He tells me the same thing. Makes sure I stay humble and makes sure I continue to grind. Just making sure that I continue to develog, and he wants me to be a Nole."
Samuels plans to visit Georgia next weekend. He will announce his commitment at the Army All-American game.
Samuels is the No. 3 cornerback and No. 20 overall player in the 2017 Scout 300.
