While redshirt freshman and likely starter Jameis Winston remains the talk of the town in Tallahassee, Florida State remains committed to acquiring as much depth as possible under center.
Jimbo Fisher and the Seminoles received a commitment from Treon Harris of Booker T. Washington High School (Miami, FL) on Monday afternoon, giving the team yet another future signal-caller. The 5-11, 186-pound Class of 2014 product picked the 'Noles over hometown Miami (FL) and other major programs such as Clemson.
Harris, who has led his team to two straight appearances in the state championship game, was looked at by a lot of schools as an athlete but will arrive at FSU as a quarterback instead of playing defensive back or receiver.
The Miami native will join a deep corps of quarterbacks in Tallahassee, and he is the second signal-caller to commit to the Seminoles' 2014 class, joining Pennsylvania's J.J. Cosentino. FSU also has redshirt sophomore Jacob Coker, redshirt freshman Sean Maguire and February signee John Franklin. The 'Noles also have a pledge from Jacksonville quarterback DeAndre Johnson in the Class of 2015.
In his first three seasons in high school, Harris has completed 61 percent of his throws with 50 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. He has also rushed for 1,691 yards and 35 scores. Harris, who is the 18th commitment in FSU's 2014 class, is considered one of the better dual-threat QBs in the nation.
