Kelly The 6-foot-3 and 225 pound linebacker from Daytona Beach (Fla.) Seabreeze has been one of the fasting rising prospects in the state of Florida. After racking up over 150 tackles and six sacks in his senior season the big boys began to pay attention. In addition to Florida State, Ron Zook and the Florida Gators offered a scholarship late in the process. He also showed interest in South Florida and UCF. But in the end his heart was with the Seminoles.

The first team all-state linebacker will need to improve his grades and/or test score to become fully qualified.

Florida State now sits at 14 verbal commitments.
