Florida State wants to keep getting bigger and more athletic up front. They took a step in the right direction tonight as they received a verbal commitment from Nile Lawrence-Stample. Lawrence-Stample just committed to the Seminoles a few moments ago.
"I am definitely a Florida State Seminole," Lawrence-Stample said. "I committed about 15 minutes ago. I love the school and it's a place where I feel very at home. I really like the coaching staff, environment and the hospitality."
Lawrence-Stample attended the FSU junior day last weekend. He saw enough to go ahead and make his decision.

"The best thing you can say about my game is that I am quick and I am strong. For a big guy I can move.
"I love the new staff at Florida State. I will play with the best players in the nation so we will all be very easy to coach. That staff is great from what I have seen so far."
Lawrence-Stample bench presses 405 and power cleans 300. He recently ran a laser timed 4.9 forty at an UnderArmour Combine.
