TheTerritory was the first to report on Sunday afternoon that Justin Mincey had committed to the Seminoles.
Mincey, a highly-touted pass rusher from Folkston (Ga.) Charlton County, made his decision following a visit from FSU assistant coach Odell Haggins.
Mincey had been favoring the Seminoles during the recruiting process and had indicated earlier he was leaning heavily towards FSU.
Mincey's commitment pushes FSU's total to seven, including linebacker Anthony Kelly, a sophomore linebacker at Jones Community College who had originally signed with the Seminoles in 2003.
Kelly is the brother of FSU freshman quarterback Xavier Lee.
Mincey if the highest-rated player in the group, ranked No. 80 nationally in Scout.com's Top 100.
The top-rated player is Tallahassee Lincoln receiver Fred Rouse, who is scheduled to make the last of his five visits to FSU on Jan. 28.
Another highly-touted pair is scheduled to visit FSU this weekend -- Reggie Nelson and Kenny Phillips.
Phillips, Scout.com's No. 1 rated defensive back from Miami, remains open but admits the Hurricanes have recruited him the hardest thus far.
Nelson, possibly the top junior-college player in the country, is expected to graduate from Coffeyville Community College in December.
He has said he will visit FSU, Florida and South Carolina before making a decision.
Nelson, a safety, had been a UF commitment until Ron Zook was fired at midseason.
The Gators hired Utah's Urban Meyer on Saturday as the program's new coach.
In an exclusive interview with TheTerritory on Saturday evening, FSU recruiting coordinator John Lilly said the Seminoles were in good position for a strong finish for February's national signing day.
"For most of the Southeast, not a large number of the top prospects are usually going to commit early," Lilly said.
"So that makes the last two months so critical in the recruiting process. We feel like we are in position to have another outstanding class."
