On Sunday night David Robbins surprised many by committing to Florida State. The offensive lineman from Glenelg (Md.) is the ninth player to join the Seminoles' 2015 class.
"I saw a bunch of guys commit and it got me thinking that there really is no point in waiting because I felt like, whether I waited another six months or whether I did it tonight, Florida State would be the right school for me," the 6-foot-4, 295-pound Robbins said. "I just decided to make the commitment tonight and it feels like I absolutely made the right choice.
"My dad and I talked to the coaches tonight. I told them I visited my fair share of schools - I think it was 15 schools. I felt at home at Florida State and I don't think any offer could beat the national champions."
There were more than a few reasons Robbins chose Florida State.
"I feel like the town down there is a lot like Glenelg," Robbins said. "It's similar because it's kind of a small town. There isn't any pro team ten minutes away. Florida State is the main attraction in Tallahassee so everyone is coming out to all the athletic events. In a big city setting I feel like I would get lost. That's one of the main things about Florida State that I loved.
"The coaches there are amazing, especially with what Jimbo Fisher is doing with the program. I think he might bring home another championship pretty soon. I definitely think coach (Rick) Trickett is a guy that can get me ready to play at the next level."
Robbins will be visiting Florida State again very soon.
"I think I'm going to go back down on my spring break and tour the campus again and meet with some academic advisors," Robbins said. "I want to get more of a feel for the entire school."
Robbins chose Florida State over schools like Kentucky, Maryland, Illinois and a few others.
