Benjamin ends recruiting process

Kelvin Benjamin almost committed to FSU late in 2010, but decided to hold off. He couldn't hold off any longer after spending the weekend in Tallahassee.

"I told the entire coaching staff that I was ready to be a Seminole before I left my official visit today," said Kelvin Benjamin. "I was in the room with all the coaches and they all jumped up, screamed, and got real excited when I gave them the news."

The 6-foot-6, 220 pound wide receiver out of Belle Glades (FL) Glades Central had many offers to choose from including Florida and Miami, but the feeling he has when in Tallahassee is what put the Noles on top.

"I have been leaning towards Florida State for a while and I just feel at home there. I know I can spend the next four years there and be happy. I love the coaching staff and the player-coach relationship there, and I know they will push me to get better. They show me a lot of love, but I know they will coach me and prepare me for the NFL. I know FSU is where I want to be."

The four-star knows he is truly committed to Jimbo Fisher and FSU program too. Like so many other committed recruits plan to, Benjamin does not plan to visit any other schools.

"I am done with recruiting, I am not taking any other visits, and I am 100 percent committed to Florida State," he said.
