Jacksonville (Fla.) Mandarin two-star wide receiver Kamrin Solomon became the first commitment to Florida Atlantic for their 2013 class when he decided to pledge to the Owls on Tuesday afternoon.
A recent visit to the Sunshine State campus convinced Solomon it was the place for him to call the next few years.
"It was one of those things that when I got to Boca Raton, I just felt at home and it felt right," Solomon said.

Solomon recently visited FAU in June for a camp session. It was his performance at that event that resulted in the opportunity to play for the Owls.
"They offered then and took me on a tour," Solomon said.
The 6-foot, 174-pound wideout intends to learn more about how he will be used in the offensive system at Florida Atlantic the next time he speaks with his future head coach.
"I will get details from Coach (Carl) Pelini when we speak in detail," Solomon said.
Solomon is happy that his decision is out of the way and he can now focus on his senior year of football. He says that FAU is the place for him to play out his collegiate career.
"I'm excited," Solomon said. "It's football in paradise."
