All seems right in the world of FSU football fans, with the Noles landing two commitments from blue-chip players Daniel “DD” Holmes and Ricky Knight III.
I wrote about the impact of Holmes’ commitment here. The impact of the Ricky Knight III commitment has some similarities, but it also differs.
Knight chose the Noles over the hometown Miami Hurricanes, who had the final official visit in June. Knight officially visited the Noles on June 16-18.
Knight mentioned during his official visit interview that the Noles becoming the first school to offer him meant a lot to him. The best way to describe Knight is he’s a dog on the field. He lists at 6’0″ and 170 pounds.
He was the 247Sports All-Combine Team at the National Combine, and Mike Norvell described him as a “ballhawk” when announcing the Noles received a commitment on Twitter Saturday afternoon.
Knight hails from West Palm Beach, Florida, only an hour north of Miami. How crazy is it that FSU offered Knight before the Miami Hurricanes, and he’s literally in their backyard?
