A long time still has to pass before Jordan Davis signs a letter of intent, but on Tuesday the Houston Clear Lake tight end decided he was ready to make a pledge.
Davis called coach Jimbo Fisher after school ended and committed to Florida State, becoming the Seminoles' third verbal pledge for their 2015 recruiting class.
"He was really happy that I committed," Davis said. "He was happy to have me a part of the family."
The 6-foot-4, 250-pound tight end attended Florida State's camp last summer, and FSU is the only school to offer him a scholarship so far. Oklahoma, Texas A&M and Georgia have also showed interest in Davis recently.
Davis picked up that offer after impressing at the camp following his freshman season, and he stayed in touch with the FSU coaching staff. An unofficial visit in November confirmed for Davis that he'd found where he wanted to be.
"It was always my No. 1 choice and my No. 1 college, and I just love the atmosphere they have," Davis said. "They've showed me a lot of love, and of course, I like the Florida weather."
Davis said he is glad the program already has a quarterback in its 2015 class, and he's looking forward to the role he'll be able to play when he eventually gets to Tallahassee.
"They obviously want me to play tight end," he said, "and I can be a big asset to their offense and another big weapon for them."
Davis was Clear Lake's second-leading receiver in 2012 with 338 receiving yards and two touchdowns, and he also played some wide receiver as a freshman.
Even though he made his commitment, Davis said his recruitment is not over. He said he's planning to attend Texas' sophomore day event on Saturday and doesn't expect college coaches to stop recruiting him.
"I’ll still take more visits and go to different camps, and I have some I’m going to," he said. "I’m going to look at all my options, but FSU for sure is going to be No. 1 unless someone offers something that I just can't turn down."
