It's been a productive summer for Orlando (Fla.) Timber Creek wide receiver Javonte Seabury as he impressed on the college camp scene earning offers from a pair of BCS schools.
On Wednesday he landed an offer from Florida State and seventy-two hours later he made his verbal pledge official to the 'Noles.
Why FSU and why now?

"Recruiting was starting to get overwhelming for me," stated Seabury. "I like the coaching staff and the school has everything to offer. I called coach [Rick] Trickett and he said he was accepting my offer and he passed the phone to coach [Jimbo] Fisher and was excited. He told me Go 'Noles."
Over the last few weeks he camped at Georgia, LSU, and Miami amongst others. He picked up a 'Canes offer from running backs coach Hurlie Brown.
Several other programs showed interest in the 5-foot-9, 160-pound explosive wideout with 4.3 forty yard dash speed.
Now he will turn his attention to his senior season and improving his stock. According to Seabury he scored over ten touchdowns on offense as a junior despite missing four games with an ankle injury.
Although he is committed we doubt recruiting will slow down as Seabury will now be the recruiter and not the recruit. There is a certain prospect he is hoping will follow him to Tallahassee and that player is his brother Jacques Patrick, a class of 2015 national recruit with 30-plus offers.
Seabury said, "My mom doesn't want us to go too far away from home, so there's a chance that we stay together."
The Seminoles have twenty commitments for the Class of 2014 and sit at the No. 3 spot in the Rivals Team rankings.
