Lost in the fun of last week’s junior day was the commitment of a big-time 2016 DT recruit, Cedric Wood of Godby High School in Tallahassee. Defensive Tackle is a position of need for the 2016 class as the Noles possibly lose three seniors (Eddie Goldman could depart for the draft with a big year in 2014). Wood is not yet rated by 247sports, but he holds a pretty impressive list of offers from Alabama, Auburn, Florida, and South Carolina.

Standing at 6’3″ and weighing in at 260lbs, Wood already has good size for a high school junior. As I watch his highlight film, I see a player with a high motor, ability to shed blockers, and great pursuit. Overall, I believe this is a home run commitment for the Seminoles, but now the key will be keeping him to his pledge for another two years.
