Seminoles land DE Davarez Bryant

February, 6, 2013
Florida State's late entrance into the Davarez Bryant (New Smyrna Beach, Fla./New Smyrna Beach) sweepstakes has paid off.

The Seminoles, who offered the three-star defensive end in the final week of January, were able to secure an official visit on Feb. 1. And eventually his commitment.

Defensive end became a position of need for Florida State when Bjoern Werner declared early for the NFL and seniors Brandon Jenkins and Tank Carradine exhausted their eligibility.

To make things a little more dire, ESPN 300 defensive end Davin Bellamy (Chamblee, Ga./Chamblee) decommitted late in the process after assistant coaches Dameyune Craig and D.J. Eliot departed for other jobs.

Bryant was an academic concern initially, but says he is on track to qualify.
