South Region Commitments
Anthony Swain, safety, Gadsden (Ala.) City
"It feels like I am at home when I am down there," Swain told Jason Caldwell of Auntigers.com. "I had already told Coach (Tommy) Thigpen I was committing. I made it official when I told Coach Chizik today "There are some cool coaches. I like them. They have got it. They are going to take care of me."
Will Monday, P, Flowery Branch, Ga.
Britton Grier, OLB, Charlotte (West) N.C.
Terrance Smith, DE, Decatur-Southwest Dekalb, Ga.
"The decision came down to FSU over Alabama because I felt most comfortable at FSU, and I have a good relationship with the coaches there," Smith reported to Nate Greer of NoleDigest.com. "I have talked to all of the coaches there, and I get along with them all. My cousin is Stephen Davis who played for Coach Fisher and played with Coach Craig. He told me that they are great guys, and that if I went there they'd take really good care of me and can help me reach my full potential."
Lonnie Gosha, DT, Lake Butler-Union County, Fla.
A surprise turn of events when Gosha committed to FSU this week, and de-committed prior to Easter weekend.
Gosha said the day of his commitment, "Florida State is the closest school to me, and I want my family to be able to see me play all the time. So that is the main reason for my decision."
"I have committed to FSU, but I will still be visiting Alabama like I had planned for a while now. I still want to see what it is like over there, but I feel pretty good about my decision. I would say I am about 80 percent sure I will be signing with Florida State."
That percentage may have changed when Gosha sent a text message Thursday to Nate Greer at NoleDigest.com letting him know about the de-commitment and open to all schools.
Will Harlos, S Somerset, Texas
Harlos had Georgia Tech as the early favorite with strong family ties to the program. An uncle, Jim Bob Taylor, is a former quarterback for the Yellow Jackets. A cousin, Cooper Taylor, is a safety on the current roster. Wake Forest is the only school to offer at this time.
