Florida State had their first Junior Day event this past weekend and by all accounts it went very well. On Saturday 4-star safety Karlos Williams committed to the Seminoles, and on Monday FSU added two more Florida standouts as Navarre offensive lineman Sterling Lovelady and Nova jumbo athlete Niles Lawrence-Stample pledged for the ‘Noles.
While both players aren't known yet across the country the coaches at FSU are very high on both of the talented players. Lovelady said that coming into the Junior Day he felt an offer was close. When he received the offer after the event he didn't hesitate to accept it.
"Coach Trickett told me they were close to offering me," Lovelady said. "I got the offer on Monday and decided to accept it. I liked the Junior Day and like what I see from the coaches. I feel like Coach will make me a better player."
Sterling will be coming in as a center most likely but he has the capability to slide over and play as a pulling guard if the coaches wanted.
The second commitment of the day came from Nova athlete Nile Lawrence-Stample. The 6'2" 295 pounder can play several positions on defense but he'll be coming in as a defensive tackle for the Seminoles.
"It came down to the fact I felt at home there and the fact that I like the coaches a lot," said Lawrence-Stample of his commitment.
