Taylor Blatch had heard plenty of good things about Florida State in the past, but to believe it, he needed to see it for himself.

The 5-foot-11, 170-pound right-handed pitcher finally got the opportunity when taking an unofficial visit starting Friday, July 13. By the time he left on Saturday, his questions had been answered and expectations had been met as Blatch became the Seminoles' seventh commitment for the class of 2013.

"It was an amazing feeling," he said of making his commitment to FSU. "I have always heard about how beautiful the campus was. I had to see it for myself and it was everything that people talked about. I felt welcome there and I felt like I could stay there for four years."
