It didn't take long for Florida State to land its first commitment from the football camp. On the first day of session one, Land O'Lakes standout Caz Piurowski told the Seminole coaching staff he intends on signing with FSU.
That's good news for a team that will lose three senior tight ends after this season.
"I was ready to commit," Piurowski told Warchant.com. "I've been thinking about it for a while. I feel comfortable that I was able to commit while I was up here. I figured I would rather do it in person than over the phone... I had pretty much made up my decision before today."
With FSU's immediate need at tight end, with his father Paul Piurowski being a former star linebacker at and a member of the university's Athletics Hall of Fame, and with his close friendship with Drew Weatherford already on campus, the match between school and recruit seems perfect. So what was the overriding factor that convinced him to commit?
"It was everything - I love it up here," Piurowski said. "Drew, hopefully he will become the quarterback, and my dad went here. I like everything up here and it's not one thing in particular that made it overwhelming."
Even though the commitment sound firm, the No. 16 rated player in Florida says he still plans on taking some official visits this fall.
Earlier in the day, the 6-foot-8 tight end had several runs in the 40-yard dash timed under 4.7 seconds.
Piurowski maintains a 3.4 GPA and recently just scored over an 1100 on the SAT.
