Dalyn Wade-Perry already had a good scouting report of what to expect on his official visit to Florida State, and it lived up to his expectations and kept the Seminoles high on his list.

The Sparta (N.J.) Pope John XXIII standout, who is the No. 33 defensive tackle in the 2017 class, sat in on meetings, and quickly learned about the intensity of the Florida State-Florida rivalry.

"The game was electric," he said. "I didn't know how big the rivalry was until I got there and all the guys talked about it, and all the fans. It was an electric atmosphere. It was crazy.

"I was really impressed. I feel like it solidifed their spot pretty high up on my list."
